How is it that a mother can try for years to get her child to do or try a certain thing with no luck, but a beloved preschool teacher simply suggests that thing...and it is gospel to the child?!
All of my children have had well-loved teachers. Teachers who could say nothing wrong, whose word was absolute. But nothing quite to the extent of Mason and his preschool teacher, Miss Leanne. During the first few weeks of school, Miss Leanne taught the children the "Seven Days in a Week" song. Mason miss-heard the lyrics and was convinced that there were ten. No amount of cajoling, arguing, counting or even showing him a calendar could sway his stance...until Miss Leanne sang the song with them again and he heard it correctly.
