As a mother, I know it hurt her, but I also know she was aware of your age and what comes with it. She forgave and ADORED you. It was obvious! You’re blessed she got to enjoy your success!💙 pic.twitter.com/DyuACRXi2a

1) Context- to encourage sharing the teacher had a sign-out sheet for popular games/toys etc. You weren't allowed multiple time slots in a row so everyone gets a turn.
One day I go to Connect 4 and she has written her name in all even slots and her friend's name in all odd slots
