Double Dog Dare

Little boys sure can be trouble.

The school year has come to an end and with first grade in the rearview, it’s time to reminisce on one of my favorite moments this year. Before we dive right into the happenings of this particular day, I just want to give kudos to all of the first-grade teachers out there because taking on a classroom full of six and seven-year-olds takes a very special kind of person.

This is the note that was sent home in Morrison’s backpack.

As it would turn out, Morrison had gone to art and a neighboring student said to him,

“I double dare you to cut a hole in your shirt.” 

and because a double dare is much more powerful than an ordinary dare, Morrison explained that he just had to do it. Which means that dares, double dares, and double dog dares still carry all the same weight with children today as they did back in the 90’s. How do you even get mad at this? I know as a mother my job is to shut this down, right? I surely can’t have the kid following every dare or cutting holes in all of his clothes, after all, kids clothes aren’t cheap.

I just had to giggle.

Then we went over the fact that this would strictly be a bedtime shirt now based on the fact that it had a gaping hole just above the belly button. That didn’t go over well, but as a friend of mine once said, “if you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.”
