Asher seemed mostly excited about his first day of kindergarten this morning. He really liked the idea of having his own backpack and lunch box. On the drive there he was telling me what a good idea it was to not go back to preschool.
A: "I already know everything in preschool, so if I went back I would just do everything perfect."
Me: "Hmm, well it's a good thing you're going to kindergarten instead. You can learn more about reading and math and science, maybe even art."
A: "But mom, I already know everything about math."
Me: "Oh really? Well maybe there are a few big numbers you don't know about yet."
A: "Oh yeah, some of the big numbers are harder."
Me: "Like what about 200+200 ?"
A: "Oh mom, that's for college! That's like the last DAY of college!"
We aim high for secondary education around here. Think we may be able to start cutting back on our college savings plan.
