Bob sailed through the first day of kindergarten. School was "so fun," his teachers "super nice." I was just fine and held it together quite nicely until I read the sheet he brought home. I was cool and then I got to the "apple of your eye" line and I fell apart just a little. Sure, the rhyme's a little wonky but really, I didn't stand a chance.
There are many apples in the world,
This one's special - here's why:
'Cause this was colored just today
By the "apple of your eye."
So keep this in a special place;
It will help you to recall I trust
My first day in Kindergarten,
The twenty-third day of August.
