When I was in Kindergarten, my school set up a small make-shift store in the computer lab that sold small trinkets for mother’s day. We were all so excited when we filed down to the small room near the cafeteria, clutching our quarters and dimes. I remember what I bought very clearly: a ceramic swan whose back was hollowed out to hold a bar of fancy soap, a small wooden dog that had elastic thread holding the joints together and when you pushed a small button under the platform it was attached to, it bowed.
