A few weeks ago, I picked up Penelope from her preschool. Her weekly report from her teacher was in her cubby. Here is what it said:
Social and Emotional — She has been a little quieter since Nora (her BFF ) has been gone but at lunch time she has some fun conversations with her friends. On Wednesday, she got proposed to by Eli.
Her teacher saw me reading the report on the way back to the playground.
“Oh yeah,” she said. “At lunch Eli said, ‘Penelope? Do you want to be married?’ and Penelope said OK. So she’s now engaged.”
Ha! We’ll see what her father says about that!
