The Day Over

I started thinking today about the things that kids say. Trent absolutely loves kindergarten. I'm not sure what all he has endured since school started but he loves to go. He hates to go to bed at night though, that seems to be a constant struggle. Every night he thinks of some reason to not lay down. "I'm thirsty, I'm hungry, I need to go to the bathroom" and my favorite "I need a hug." I usually take this time to talk about school because he is so willingly to tell me then. If I were to ask him any other time he'd respond " I don't want to talk about it." So a couple of weeks ago during our bedtime talk he says, "Mom, can we just start this day over?" He had just had so much fun at school. His class had made Green Eggs and Ham and had done other fun projects. He was beaming. He just kept talking and talking. I only wish that his enthusiasm will continue. I know that every year will be a different adventure, but until then we will enjoy kindergarten. You go, Ms. Blanton.
