Overhead conversation between the two munchkins last night.
Little A (super excited): I can’t wait for Valentine’s Day! We have a party at school that day where we will all exchange Valentine goodie bags, have pizza and cupcakes, do arts and crafts, and play games. And ooooh, that day is early dismissal, so school’s only half a day. Yay!
Little N (a tad bitter): Oh, let me see. That day, I have a math test first thing in the morning, and then we will be dissecting owl pellets. No early dismissal either for me. So, you have fun, ok?
Well. Things don’t really get easier as you grow older, do they? But dissecting owl pellets? Eeeeeek!! Sounds pretty rough even to me. 😉
