L’s gifts

About 8 months ago L started preparing daily gifts for one of her teachers. Each morning she draws on paper, folds it up, tapes it up, occasionally asks us to add the teacher’s name, her own name, or both. Sometimes they’re adorned with stickers.

Occasionally we are the recipients of gifts prepared at school, but that is less consistent.

This has become so important to L that on days when we’re running late she’s become adept at preparing the present from her car seat, with a quick assist on the taping once we arrive.

The preschool teachers, bless them, feign complete excitement daily, express gratitude, and promise to save each one in their cubbies.
