One day after school –
V: Ma, Casey gave me kisses today!
V: Yeah, three kisses! So I added them to the others in my bottle. But teacher confiscated it. *sad face*
Whew! Now I know what those kisses are. No, not the chocolates. Certainly not lip smacks.
I don’t know about your kids, but kisses seem to be a hit in my kids’ school.
Kisses are tiny jelly-like balls that look like sago (tapioca). When not yet soaked in water, they look like ordinary translucent beads (not like diet pills 😛 ). But when soaked in water, they grow, as in GROW! And they have that beautiful, clear glow like jelly crystal.
Apparently, V has been keeping her ‘pets’ in the classroom, in the lower shelf of the TV cabinet. She can’t keep it in her locker because “kisses need light to grow, ma!” Duh.
So her kisses were happily growing in the PET bottle under the TV… until the lunch monitor caught her playing with them during lunch time. Lunch monitor confiscates the, uhhm, pets, but was understanding enough to let her have it at the end of the day.
So V had to bring her kisses home. We are keeping them on top of the ref though, where Nate can’t reach them. You see, they’re actually cute and pretty and look yummy. 😀 But I don’t know what they are – what’s in them, are they toxic… So we’ve got to be careful, lest Nate devours them in one gulp.
