Those Aren’t Tears!

Standard

It’s the end of another school year but this one was a little hard on The Boy. In our town, Middle School starts in 5th Grade. Having just completed 4th, he knows he’s in for a big change next year. And while we did have a rocky start at this school last year (see MomDay Monday – Cue Alice Cooper), I knew The Boy adjusted just fine when I overheard him talking to BFF#2, Josh:

The Boy: “Tomorrow’s our last day at Pentucket Lake. I’m kind of sad. But if you think you see me crying, I”m not. I’m just sweating through my eyeballs. It’s been really hot out.”

He felt that formal-wear was a proper send-off to a school he grew to love.

What Would You Do?

Standard

The Angelina, 11-year-old friend of The Kids (and Me): “I was sitting on the babysitter’s couch, crying. Nobody even asked me what was wrong. If you saw a child crying, what would you do?”

The Boy: “Scream & slap them?”
