WATERLOO, IA—Validating rumors that had been circulating throughout recess and lunch, sources at Lowell Elementary School are now confirming that Mrs. Nichols is also Daniel’s mom. “It totally makes sense,” said classmate Sarah McGreevy, who minutes earlier had witnessed Daniel getting into his mother’s car in the faculty parking lot. “They have the same last name and kind of have the same hair. Plus, Ryan said he saw a picture of her when he was playing Xbox at Daniel’s house. It’s got to be true.” Fellow classmates have reportedly already begun speculating that the reason Daniel isn’t in his mother’s class is because she’d probably give him all A’s.
