The parents were given this poem at Shane's preschool orientation. I thought it was really cute.

What Did You Do Today?

When children come home at the end of the day.

The question they're asked as they scurry to play is,

"Tell me, what did you do today?"

And the answer they give makes you sign with dismay,

"Nothing, I did nothing today!"

Perhaps nothing means I played with blocks,

or counted to 10 with Mrs. Cox.

Maybe I painted a picture of red and blue,

or heard a story about a mouse that flew.

Maybe I watched the gerbils eat today,

or went outside on the swings to play.

Maybe I led a song from beginning to end,

or played with a special brand new friend.

When you're only 3 and your heart has wings

NOTHING can mean so many things!
