Third Day of First Grade

From Daddy: Today was his first day of before-school and after-school care. He had a great day again. Even though he stressed this morning that he still preferred kindergarten.

This morning, I was pleased that he didn’t push to arrive at school early (i.e., 8:00 like yesterday). This morning, we got into the car around 8:11 and his asked when the before school program was over. I said 9:00. He asked in how many minutes that was, and I said 49 minutes.

He watched the clock on my phone, and counted down to 48 minutes. 47 minutes…

Last Year

We had a family dinner at a favorite restaurant following the third day of kindergarten…

    The countdown was probably either cute or annoying.
