What an entertaining Circle Time we had today with the three year olds.

They are so lovable the way they blurt out everyones secrets in such an innocent manner.

Let me set the scene here. They were sat on the ABC rug in a circle taking it in turn telling the class about what they had done over the vacation. Of course there are the ones that have been somewhere exotic, others that had been to the beach or to Grammy's house for a sleepover. Others that were thrilled to bake cookies with their mum etc.

Suddenly the conversation went off at a tangent which is quite common. One child showed his "boo boo" on his knee.

Well then it became competition time.

Suddenly they were all trying to be the most dramatic taking shoes off to show their bruised big toes to the scratches on their arms to the bug bites on their ears.

Today however there was a clear winner.

One little sweetheart pipes up " We went to Azona on a big plane and my sister got a splinter in her gina!"

This comment flies over everybodies heads whilst the teachers look at each other with a "how the dickens did that happen look?"

"I held her hand whilst mummy got it out. My sister cried a lot." Cried, I would have screamed blue murder!

The thought brings tears to ones eyes.

The most amusing part is that the other children did not comment.

"Time for snack" I say wanting to move on until we get more details.

So folks do not worry about going to Mexico & catching Swine Flu. Here is a word of warning stay well away from Arizona!

I feel rather blessed to have escaped then. We were there a few weeks ago. Priceless!
