Here is the note that was sent home from my son's ("LegalMist's Son," aka "LMS") Kindergarten class last week:
"Please keep LMS's gloves at home. He plays during class with them. Thank you."
Here is the conversation I had with LMS this morning as we prepared to leave for school:
"Buddy, your teacher sent a note home with you last week, didn't she?"
"Do you remember what it was about?"
(Sadly) "Yes. I can't take my gloves to school any more."
"Do you remember why?"
(Looking down, fidgeting, talking softly). "Because I was playing with them in class."
"That's right. So, I'm sorry, but you'll have to leave those home today."
(Defiantly) "These? But, mommy ... no! These aren't gloves, they're mittens!"

Do you think his teacher will appreciate that bit of legal mumbo jumbo?
