Preschool teacher breaks up with class

It’s sad but true, Mr 2’s Preschool teacher, the cool dude who wears shorts, beanies and a lazy smile is breaking up with us.

Okay maybe he’s not breaking up with us but he is leaving and we want to say thanks.

What do you buy a 20 something, guy preschool teacher?

Nope.  I couldn’t figure it out either.

I knew that alcohol wasn’t the answer, although for a man who worked with 30 plus kids a day, I’d say he deserved it.  But no I knew there was something better.

So I did what all good mothers do. I got on facebook and asked for my friends and families suggestions on what to get him.

My father-in-law Lloyd said, good bless him, a cane to help him cope. Sister-in-law Karla, herself a teacher for many years said Valium. I figured she would know so off I went to buy some. No, just kidding. I kept polling.

Other entertaining suggestions along the Valium line were chill pills, nuts and a nut cracker (he’s nuts?) and earplugs.

Here are the other great and sometimes dubious top 17 present suggestions that you all came up with:

So I bet you’re all dying to know what we ended up getting him?

Well, a little birdie told us energy drinks and pizza are two of his favourite things. So we make up a pack with both (no of course not actual pizza).

But for future reference alcohol sounds like a great gift solution for mere mortal mothers of two 🙂

What’s your solution to the perfect gift?
