    We All Half Our Favorites

    | Ohio, USA | Family & Kids

    (My friend and I both volunteer at a daycare for school credit. Although we try to act like we don’t while we’re on the clock, we both do have our favorite students.)

    My Friend: “So, who are your favorites?”

    Me: “[Little Girl] and [Little Boy].”

    My Friend: “I’ve met [Little Girl]. She’s a good kid.”

    Me: “Yeah, she’s a sweetie. It took awhile for me and [Little Boy] to warm up to one another, though.”

    My Friend: “Oh, yeah?”

    Me: *laughs* “On my first day, he drew a picture and gave it to me.”

    My Friend: “Aw, that’s so sweet!”

    Me: “It was of him karate-chopping me in half.”

    My Friend: “…”

    Me: “Sometimes, I don’t know if I want to hug that kid or smack him.”

    (This was almost two years ago. The picture hangs on my bedroom wall to this day.)
