Preschool Graduation

I had a child graduate preschool this week. It was a very dignified ceremony, as you might imagine. Of the twenty children graduating to the big, bad world of Kindergarten, three spent the first part of the ceremony picking their noses. One little girl repeatedly pulled her hair bow down over her eyes.
My child? What, you may ask, did she do during this most auspicious of occasions?
She was well-mannered up until the teacher began reading off the children's names. At that point she began laughing - uproariously, at times - at their last names. She would repeat the name in a tone that left no doubt that she thought their names were ridiculous, and then laugh. Pretty soon the kids near her were laughing as well.
Perhaps a school on manners would be a good idea.
