Reminiscent of one of my favorite Seinfeld episodes of all time, Thomas decided to take one of his Sam books (like Dick and Jane, only with a lion named Sam, a monkey named Mit, and other such characters) to the bathroom with him. Apparently he got a little distracted because he accidentally dropped the little book into the toilet. We threw it away, of course, and after washing our hands with anti-bacterial soap, I told Thomas that we needed to write a note to his teacher, Mrs. Anderson, to explain what happened. He decided that he would write the note, and though I helped with the spelling, the words are all his:
When I asked him if he gave Mrs. Anderson the note (along with another explanatory note from me), he said, "Yes, and she laughed at me because I'm cute."
