Starting something new today,
I have a feeling this is going to be quite the series …
Over heard at the dinner table last night …
Mom: So how was school today?
Mom: Did you meet any friends?
Sweet: Yeah, I met one.
In the bathroom.
A little boy. [Giggle]
[A few bites of dinner, a moment of silence]
Then, just as I was getting ready to ask another question ….
Sweet: [Proudly] I had to help him wipe his bottom!
Me: [Thinking very loudly to myself] Ummmmmmm …… what?!?!!
Lots of surprised faces and open mouths all around the table. Boys laughing. Nana, Papa, Mom and Dad all trying their best not to laugh themselves, and come back promptly with a sound, practical response for
“What you should do the next time you find yourself in the GIRLS bathrooms at school and a kindergarten boy is in there and needs help wiping this bottom” …
And so begins a fun, new chapter in our lives, Life as a First Grader.
Such a helper she is. Good thing she’s such a great big sister!
