The Optimus Prime Of Preschool.

When I pick Tom up from school, I always ask his teacher how he did that day.

Usually I hear that he didn’t really want to sit for story time or something.

But Tuesday when I asked, she told me something…else.

A little less “not sitting still” and a little more to do with his love for all things Transformers.

Me: “How as Tom today?”

Teacher: “Umm…yeah.  I told Tom he’s not allowed to transform at school anymore.”

Me (knowingly laughing): “Oh, okay.”

Teacher: “I told him he could transform at home, but not at school.”

Me: “Is he getting in the other kids’ faces again?”

Teacher: “No…it’s just that he transforms, and then gets all the other kids to transform, and then the whole class is transforming and no one is paying attention.”

Me (in total seriousness): “Okay, I will remind him not to transform on Thursday.”

Tom transforming into “Cliffjumper” obviously.


This is an actual, for-real conversation.

I had to seriously talk to Tom’s teacher about his propensity for leading all the kids into transforming rebellion.

He starts transforming, causing other kids to transform.

He’s the leader of the transformers in his 2-year-old class.

He’s officially the Optimus Prime of his preschool.

And his Daddy couldn’t be more proud.

(Video below is of exactly what I will tell Tom not to do at school today.)

((While you’re eating your breakfast, I will be seriously saying, “Tom, remember not to transform at school today, okay?”))

(((Because that’s how we ROLL…OUT!)))

    If he transforms, we’ll all transform…it’ll be anarchy!! -excerpt from the yet-to-be-produced Breakfast Club: The Early Years.

    This is a great post. The Breakfast Club reference in the comment above makes it even better. 🙂

    Instead of conforming he’s transforming? Go Tom!!!
