Today, one of the moms called to tell us her 4 year old son has been absent from pre-school because he broke his arm. She said it was a pretty nasty break and wanted to know if we could help him out with things like washing his hands and going potty (I told her we would be glad to do that). Then she laughed and said he told her "Mom, you need to write me an excuse for gym time". She couldn't figure out how he knows about excuse notes. I couldn't tell her but I thought it was very cute for a 4 year old to come up with that.
