I have a second grader!!!
I picked Cayden up from school today and as we were walking away he stopped and looked at me and said, “I hope this is not a dream and that I really am a second grader now.” How cute was that! Then he went on to pinch himself and proclaim, “Nope not a dream I felt that!”
One of his friends fell on the playground today and as we were driving home I told him that his teacher had told me that he did end up breaking his arm and had to go to the doctor and get a cast on his arm. Cayden paused and then said so matter-of-fact “I wish that had happened to me so it didn't have to happen to my friend.”
WOW! I love my conversations with my kids when we are one on one. Nothing better!
