Throwback Thursday

***

I remember when it was a freezing winter day outside our one room schoolhouse. No matter the weather we all – four in my grade – dressed up in our winter weather paraphernalia to go outside at least for lunch recess, an hour. I had just finished dressing and ready to go out and couldn’t get them off to go to the bathroom in time, before wetting my pants. How embarrassed I was as I sat behind a screen, in front of the pot belly stove in the corner, waiting for my pants to dry. In a one room school – 1-6 grades only – with less than 25 students, all country neighbors, the embarrassment lived on.

  1. Sorry I missed this post. Thank you so much for joining in. There were a few pants wetting in my 6th grade classes over the years. I felt so bad for the kids. I can only imagine in a small group, that the memory hung on too long.

  2. Welcome to our memory bloghop. That is quite a school memory and I can imagine it must have been embarrassing. I suppose we all have our embarrassing moments – enough for a blog post all its own. Thanks for joining us this week.
