I Was a Big Kid: Giving Others in Daycare Back Rubs - Looking back the whole idea is rather condescending. Still, I think this would have been the first time I felt like a big kid.

That’s why I felt so incredibly mature and wise when the teacher would pick me to go rub backs. I attended preschool through kindergarten in a small private school.
