I took Sam to the PTA meeting tonight.
They were raffling off bikes, and when the kids who won were collected, a door in the lunch room was opened.
"Mom?" Sam says, "I've never seen that door opened before. I didn't know they kept all that stuff in there!"
"Well now you know all about the secret room, Sam."
"There are lots of secret rooms around here. The most surprising one to me was the Teacher's Lounge. I walked past once when it was opened and they have a vending machine and a couch!"
He leans in toward me at this point, and lowers his voice. "Mom? I honestly don't think that there is any teaching at all going on in there."
