I hugged teachers this morning at school.  I can't help wondering how they processed recent tragedies. 

The writing assignment in my son's class this afternoon was to think and write about a highlight from the holidays.  There were a lot of sentences about sledding and sleeping in cabins and big family dinners.

My favorite was the little girl who drew a picture of herself, a huge frown on her face, being pulled by her father to the dentist.  Some people are effortlessly funny.  This is the same child who, during a very loud meltdown by her special needs classmate, covered her ears and sharply said, "Oy vey! That's hurting my ears!"
