I finally got Smith to open up a little about school today as I drove him to soccer practice. He was gabbing away with his friend, and quite at his leisure, so I figured it was a good time to drill the two boys about their new school. I asked Dillon what his favorite part about school was and he gave the obvious reply, "recess." To Smith, I offered up the same question, expecting to get the same answer.
"Well. I like learning the best."
Shocked, I asked what he liked to learn the best.
"Numbers. I like to learn all about numbers."
Not sure I'm related to this kid since I personally liked recess the best. However, as a new Kindergartener Mom, I couldn't be more proud or excited.
