Anyway, when the sirens went off, the principal made an announcement on the intercom that we need to go to our shelters. So, we lined them up and marched them all to our "Safe Spot," aka the boy's bathroom. At this point, none of them had any idea what was happening. We walked into the bathroom and every child immediately just went into a stall and went to the bathroom. I tried to explain that we're just in our safe shelter and they don't have to use the bathroom, but I wasn't fast enough. Then things got a lot grosser. And here are the reasons why:
1) Little girls have never seen urinals before. Which obviously means they're going to lay all over them, flush them constantly, touch the flush water, etc...I mean, who can blame them, really? Urinals are weird. And if you're 4 years old, they're even weirder. It then became a really fun game to touch the urinals and have to wash hands. Fun.
|If I were in preschool I would want to touch this, too.|
3) Not only were the children all over the ground, but all of their belongings were scattered around the floor as well. Sanitary.
Maybe we should reconsider the location of our Safe Spot...
