  I think this is a wonderful idea. I could see something like that really taking off.  
DS is 6.5 and he's never had any problems!
That's outrageous! Not making excuses, but appointments at the bank can be *very* stressful. Let's hope it was just a bad moment for the mom of that little boy. I would be shaking in my boots in that situation. OP you are so good to your DD to get her Elmo car back!

I don't think you under-reacted. The school was forthright about what happened and made a plan to address the situation so it would not happen again. Your son is OK, that's the most important thing. I imagine the parents who called/emailed just wanted to get the full scoop. Why be furious at the little girl? I don't get it. You sound like the kind of mom I would want to be friends with.

They are great for keeping feet dry, and paired with wool socks they keep my feet warm too even in our COLD, subzero Wisconsin winters. They are easy and fast to get on and off, a plus for both me and my son. We love ours. They're cute too! Edited to add: I just...
I think that is an awesome idea! I would let my son have a hot cocoa from you, especially considering you have your own child care program that you would be essentially standing right in front of. In Wisconsin its often really cold for trick-or-treating, and a hot cocoa break would be wonderful. There is a very old man who lives down the block from me, and every Halloween he sits on a stool in his doorway and hand dips ice cream cones for the kids. The kids love it...
