It starts off with a simple message: "Tell Peter: Fly home for dinner."
But quickly turns into all sorts of craziness, like: "Tell Peter: Put your wet socks in the dryer."
We decided to play our own round of telephone. Miss Kylie started with the message:
"RED JELLY BEANS ARE DELICIOUS."
But by the time the message came full circle, we had:
"PIZZA IS PRECIOUS."
Pretty funny right.
Here's the moral...something that starts of funny and innocent can quickly turn crazy or even mean when we don't want it to. We've been talking a lot about tattling, minding our own business, and being the best friends we can be. When we take things out of context rumors get started and feelings get hurt. What if someone says: "You have nice hair." But by the time that message gets around the playground you hear: "You smell like a pear!" No good! In first grade, we're making sure we only say nice things about other people. Everywhere and every time!
