This is why I teach first grade

I bought myself a new black and white striped sweater dress from JC Penney on Black Friday when my mother placed an order, but I didn't get it until Christmas.  I wore it to work one day last week, and one of my little cuties asked me if I got it for Christmas.  I told her yes, rather than explain where it really came from.  I asked her if she liked it.  She said yes.  

Later that day, after they came back from Arts and Humanities, she handed me this picture.  I asked her if it was me in the dress, and she said yes.  How cute is this?
