Pamela hands me this picture on Thursday. “I’m giving this to you because it is a good picture of you, but a terrible one of me.” Not true, I respond.
I took the picture with me to school to put in my office. As I walk down the hall with it in my hand, one of my kindergarten students stops me, gives me a hug, and says….
“What is that Mrs. Kwogman?” She is pointing at my picture. I kneel down and show her.
“It’s a picture.” Yes, it is Makenna.
“That’s you.” Yes, it is Makenna. She studies the picture intently.
“Where are you?” she asks. I am at my friend Pamela’s house. It is her son’s graduation party.
“Is that Pamela?” she asks while pointing to Pamela. Yep. That is Pamela.
“She’s beautiful.” Absolutely! I tell her. Makenna still studies and holds the picture.
“Her dress is pretty.” It is a very pretty dress, I respond. Makenna grins ear to ear. Hands back the picture and walks to her class.
Pamela, You are beautiful…thanks for the picture.
