Recently, Mihret discovered that she has pockets in her pants.
Sometimes, she puts stuff in them, but more often than not, she just gets excited to know they’re there. She’ll stick her hands in them and wander around the house.
Her teacher shared a fun story with me a few weeks ago:
The teacher in question is standing on the playground while the kids race around. She has placed her hands in her pockets.
Mihret, ever the mimic, walks over to her, affects a similar stance, and sticks her hands in her pockets.
Teacher: All the cool kids stick their hands in their pockets.
Mihret: (conspiratorially) We’re cool.
