First Day of Kindergarten


Well, if you're here to read how Will's first day of Kindergarten went after all those grand preparations, you're probably going to be as disappointed as I was. Not that he didn't have a great day... because he did! That's just all of the details I got out of him.

Me: How was your first day?
Will: Great!
Me: Did you make new friends?
Will: Yes.
Me: What are their names?
Will: I'm not sure.
Me: Who did you sit next to?
Will: I'm not sure.
Me: Did you color with crayons?
Will: Of course.
Me: Did you write with a pencil?
Will: No.
Me: Did you eat all of your lunch?
Will: Yes.
Me: Did you eat lunch in your classroom or the cafeteria?
Will: The cafeteria.
Me: Did the other kids bring their lunch or buy it?
Will: Some brought it, but most bought it.
Me: What did the other kids eat?
Will: I don't know.
Me: Did you go to the gym?
Will: Yes.
Me: Did you learn a new game?
Will: Yes.
Me: What was it?
Will: I'm not sure.
Me: Well, did you have fun?
Will: Yep.

And that was it.

Pretty much the same as last year in preschool. I think I need to stop asking yes/no questions, although even when I don't... he doesn't give a real answer. Hmf. He's gonna be one of those that I have to pull teeth to get anything out of...

Yes, that is a typical boy conversation. Now we play the "3 great things" game around the dinner table. Everyone gets a turn to talka bout 3 great things that happened at school, work, etc. Any trick to get these boys to talk!

And that's how it will be from now on. I have a 15 year old and our conversations about school are just.like.that!

My girls do the same thing!

I ask "what did you do today?"
Response: "nothing" from both of them. I expected it when they were older, but not at 4 & 5.

That's how my conversation is with my son. Eventually throughout the evening he'll talk about school(little piece here and there) without any prompting from me.

I think all kindergarteners take a vow that they will not share any details from their day with their parents. When I would ask my daughter about her day, all I would get was "I don't remember...."

Congratulations, Mom! You made it through the hardest day.

I didn't cry on Agent 002's first day last August, but my 3yo daughter did. She missed him SO much. It was cute, really.
