Conversations with Batman: On Preschool

In honor of another year of preschool ending, here are a few preschool stories...

October 19, 2011 
Getting ready for preschool today…
Jacob: I’m mad at you, Mama.
Me: Why?
Jacob: I don’t know. I in a grumpy mood.

On the way home from preschool…
Jacob: Jackson took my backpack, and I was like, “I need my backpack right now!” but Miss Melissa gave me my backpack, and she say, “No, that’s Jacob’s backpack.”

Jacob is at preschool, which means Drew has free reign over all the toys in the living room. I think it may be the best morning of his life.

October 3, 2012
Jacob: Hello…hello…hello…
Me: Jacob, who are you talking to?
Jacob: I’m just seeing what my voice sounds like. I think it sounds like Ben’s voice. You know, the Ben that sometimes wears the Batman shirt?
Me: Uh huh.
Jacob: That’s what his voice sounds like.

Jacob went on a rant today about juice. Gotta love preschool kids’ problems…
Me: What did you have for snack today at preschool?
Jacob: We had animal crackers and apple juice AGAIN! I’m so upset that everyone keeps bringing apple juice. Every kid who hasn’t had a turn yet keeps bringing the same juice that the other kids brought. I just think that’s just stupid.
Me: Maybe they really like apple juice.
Jacob: Well I’m going to tell the kid who brought apple juice today to bring a different juice next time.
John: What do you want to drink with lunch, Jacob? Apple juice?

Today Andy asked Jacob if he ever played with one of the girls in his preschool class…
Jacob: No, because she only plays with girl toys.
Me: What are girl toys?
Jacob: Ponies living in houses.
Andy: I thought you liked horses.
Jacob: Not ponies.
Seriously, how do they pick up on this stuff at 3 years old?

November 17, 2012
Jacob: What do these signs say?
Me: They say you have to have a blue tag on your car that matches that sign to park there. Its’ for people who are in wheelchairs or who have a hard time walking very far or maybe have a broken leg…
Jacob: Or maybe if a big animal with sharp teeth ate their legs…
Me: Yep, that too.

February 18, 2013
Me: Did you know you don't have preschool today?
Jacob: Why not?
Me: Because it's President's Day. It's a holiday.
Jacob: Yay! Does that mean I can open my birthday presents?
Nice try.

March 27, 2013
Jacob's friend Jack at preschool invited him to a birthday party at his house. After Jacob got the invitation, he asked Andy and me,"Do you think Jack thinks I know how to drive?"
