Martin Luther King Day as Filtered Through the Mind of My 4.5 Year Old


Yup, that's my son's MLK crown.

King, get it?

At preschool pickup on Friday, kiddo was all full of information about not nice people who didn't want to share water fountains with everybody and the King who told them that they had to.  Could be worse, right?

Today, in the midst of a loooong day off from school, I tried to revisit the idea of who Martin Luther King was and why he's important.

Clearly that word 'King' was still the stand out because, a little while later, I found myself sitting in his room helping him make crowns for him and for his little sister…which he then wore on his March Around the Living Room.
