Tomorrow morning I will register my oldest for kindergarten. In preparation I explained to him that kindergarten was for big kids who can take care of themselves for an entire day. Our kindergarten lasts from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and requires that he will need to bring a lunch and be in charge of his own backpack. This is a big deal for a 5 year old. Just as this sunk in he interrupted me with panic in his voice:
C: "What if I have to poop?"
M: "Well, then you'll use the restroom."
C: "But who will wipe my butt?"
We're still working on independence.
