It was the day after the MLK holiday. I was getting Sprout ready for bed.
“We got treated at school today,” Sprout said to me as I helped her pull her pajamas over her head.
“How did you get treated?” I asked.
“We got M&Ms.”
“Why did you get treats at school?”
“The teacher gave all the kids with curly hair M&Ms.”
“And since you have curly hair, you got some. But kids without didn’t get any?”
“How do you think they felt about that?”
“Bad. But then the teacher gave them M&Ms too. They were treated.”
“You mean they were treated the same?”
