Never ever?

    Never ever ever! she said firmly, hands on hips. I am never going to go to this school again ever!

    I just got back from taking the twins to their older brother's school where they will attend next year.

    Boring, it was sooooo boring! her twin sister chimed in.
    As they repeated this again outside, a kindly dad said to me. "One good thing is ever is not very long when you've just turned 5."
    Geeze I hope he's right! smile

        I think they'll love it. It's a great school that has a wonderful reputation for academic achievements and a homosexual headmaster which is another nice sign of being a modern place of learning.
        It is a baccalaureate school and multicultural.

    I know one thing for certain about five year olds - you never argue with them - they are always right - thank heavens they grow out of that too - at least they do until they turn 15! big_smile

    Being Five

    When I was five I had no idea
    That I would be able to remember
    Being five

    Anyone over 12 was a giant
    Mostly friendly ones
    Anyone as old as my mother
    Was two hundred and fifty at least

    Cars were noisy
    And fast
    And scary
    But great to sit in

    Girls were silly
    But I listened to them
    I was a small boat
    Teachers lived in ships

    When I was five I did not know
    That I couldn’t fly
    Which is why
    I broke my left leg
    Sky diving down the stairs
    I blame the comic I had read
    An hour before

    I did not shed tears
    There was no pain
    But I did cry
    Because I couldn’t stand up

    The hospital had a strange smell
    And people I didn’t know
    Were painting my bad leg
    Shiny shiny white
    With a big plaster
    That came from Paris
    Just for me

    That’s what the doctor said

    I learnt to hop quite fast
    Around the playground
    Making other five year olds laugh
    Until I couldn’t scratch
    The itchy part

    So I climbed the school gates unnoticed
    And hopped all the way home
    Where my mother was waiting
    To take me back to school
    But not before putting a knitting needle
    Down my leg to calm the itch

      Thats what my little one said after his first day at school. Last week he was running a temperature and we asked him to stay home he said 'NOT ON A SCHOOL DAY'
      We couldn't hold him back!!

    OMG that's what I said every day when I got home from school, but my mom kept making me go back again the next day.   sad

    My granddaughter attended kindergarten last year. After her first full day of school she asked her Mom how long do I have to do this. Her Mom laughed and said years my dear. My granddaughter just sighed and said I don't want to, I don't like it.

    She will be going into first grade this year. Just the other day she told me I want to quit.

    Kids they sure can make you laugh.

    Such lovely replies! I had a fun day despite the dreaded gang up from the twins. There older brother superspiderman who is 6 got into trouble at school again. His teacher says he is smart and naughty.
    I talked to him about it, but it is still a mystery to him as to why he is like that almost every day!

    He is such a beautiful little guy, loves and protects his sisters, is very capable even getting food for them when they behave like hungry sparrows.

    I hope he discovers where his naughty bone is soon, the teacher is exhausted.

    You are all a bunch of softies like me, Little ones are so funny!

      I am with you there! I have a 13 year old as well, and she did not want to go to high school last year.
      Loves it now though!

    Try looking at it from the wee ones' point of view. Roger McGough wrote a great poem called 'First Day at School'.
    My 13 year old can't wait for high school despite having hated every day of primary. And my 14 year old now hates school despite having loved nearly every day since she started. The only thing you can guarantee with kids is that you will always be wrong but that one day they will grow up and not be the experts in everything smile

      I do not know the poem Cally, but it sounds interesting from the title. I will Google.

      I have grown up kids, and 6 grandchildren and agree with you completely. The older they get, the smarter I get. smilesmile
