Our boy started kindergarten one week ago today. He was so excited and loved everything about it.
The next day: Tears. And the next. And the next. And the next. And the next.
To say that we have been surprised by this is an understatement. One thing that C has always been is enthusiastic about school. But another thing that he has always been is unpredictable. Just when you think he'll zig, he zags. Just because he can.
He likes his teacher. He likes the activities. He likes recess. He's making friends. He likes everything about it. Except...
"It's too long."
"The cookies taste bad."
"The school is too white." (We thought he was being very smart about the need for ethnic diversity, but alas, he was talking about the color of the walls. Clearly someone in this house has been watching too much HGTV.)
So even though C tells everyone he talks to how much he loves kindergarten, he's still crying every single morning. No. matter. what. we. try.
Do you think that he is trying to break our hearts one tiny tear at a time?
