They’re Too Cute

Cass had been the only girl in our class for a long time. About the same time I joined the classroom so did a young lady named Marisol. Cass and Marisol made instant friends. They walk to recess and to lunch together hand-in-hand. Today Cass and Marisol were walking together and talking away. Harold and Jay decided to copy them.

Somehow all four children got tangled up at the corner. Forty-five degree turns can be tricky in tandem. Cass and Jay bumped heads. Both of them — at the same time — reached out and patted the other on the head. Cass said, “I sowwy.” Jay said, “Sorry, too.” He added, “You okay?”

Cass said, “I okay. You okay?”

Jay said, “I okay.”

Cass and Jay continued around the corner to the play ground. Marisol looked over at Harold and asked, “Jou otay?”

Harold frowned at her, looked down at his feet, then frowned at her some more. He put his hand on his chest and said, “No! I Harowd!”

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Awwwww. And to think, you were worried about germs. The real danger is that you wind up in diabetic shock from all the sweetness. πŸ˜‰

  2. Brig — believe me, there’s enough whining to balance it.

    Melli — then Derek must be adorable.

    Nessa — they have their moments — on both ends of the spectrum.

  3. Kids are so sweet. At a distance. A great distance. A very long, long, great distance. Unless they’re mine. Mine were different. Mine were sweet close up.

  4. Polona — sometimes ya want to hug’em and kiss’em. Other times ….

    TLP — funny how that works.

    Brooke — please, come teach pre-school …..

  6. Pauline — you’re welcome. If you like this, you might want to check out O’Ceallaigh & The Quill, too — especially if you like chocolate.

    Dr. John — with the excitement of the playground in front of him, that’s about all he knows. In the classroom he’s a little more focused.

    Donna — Donna — Donna — Donna — I’ll try.

    Doug — sorry. They’re starting a little younger these days.
