Honesty

It was a rough bedtime.  Ignoring directions, shouting, goofing off, whining, protesting, you name it.

Finally in exasperation, I asked, “Why aren’t you cooperating more, Sebastian?”

He looked right at me and said, “I was cooperating with my teachers ALL DAY, Mama.  I’m tired of it.”

Well.

At least he’s honest.

And I guess if I had to choose, I’m glad he decided to be his best self in school and blow off steam at home.

Still, I’m glad it’s the weekend, and my new little kindergartener is cooperating with me again.

    Excellent! Does that mean that if I cooperate with my professors, I don’t have to cooperate with my boss? Hmmm…

    Rats!
    Do I have to be 5 for this to work?
    Nicely done, Sebastian 🙂

    Whooops! I’m so late to this post! But how cute of Sebastian. I kind of remember this happening to me too when I was little. I was so exhausted from holding it together all day at school that by the time I came home – I’d lose it.
