Connor LOVES kinder, he loves the bus, he loves his teacher...all is good in the 'hood!
As a matter of fact, here is a real conversation from the ride home last week:
Connor: Mommy, I Love Kindergarten! I want to go to Kindergarten Always!
Mommy: I know, honey, but Mommy has to work longer than you go to Big Boy School, so you need to go to Daycare for the rest of the day.
Connor: No Mommy, I want to be in Kindergarten Always!
Mommy: Oh! Do you mean you don't want to go to First Grade?
Connor: Yep, I'm not going to grow up.
Pause for a 30 second brainstorm
Connor: I KNOW!
wait for it......
Connor: I can eat Junk ALL day and then I will never get big!
Can you just picture the look on his face? The triumph and awe at his own genius????
I tell you, logic in a 5 year old is DANGEROUS BUSINESS!
By the way...my response?
"Well, if you eat Junk all day you will still get Older, you will just be sick and skinny."
What is a Mom to do?
