Gary called the kids yesterday evening to see how their first day of school went. Everyone seemed to have had a good day, until Sunflower, who started first grade, got on the phone. When Gary asked her how her first day went, she sighed and said, “Well, it was okay.”
Sunflower had been extremely excited to go back to school, so it wasn’t the reaction Gary expected. He asked her what was wrong.
She told him, “I didn’t get anything to bring home.”
Gary reassured her, “Well, it was only the first day. Maybe you will have homework tomorrow.”
I had to laugh when I overheard that. Upset about not having homework! I can’t say I ever felt that way.
