the honest truth
Me: Yes I did Maddie, when I was a little girl like you.
Maddie: Well I wanted to be sick so I could stay home from school, but when I got sick I felt so bad I wished I hadn't wished to be sick.
Me: Why did you want to stay home from school Maddie? Don't you like school?
Maddie: Well yes I do, if all I had to do was recess and PE.
Me: Just recess and PE Maddie? You don't like anything else?
Maddie: Well, yes, I like Art. And Music.
Me: You are definitely my girl, Mad.
This from the child who makes top grades and reads at about a fifth grade level in the second grade.
Wondering if there are enough recesses to get her through high school at this point.
A child can speak the truth with blunt honesty and get away with it.
1. Because it is coming from a child.
2. Because if I said it, people would wonder why I was still in grade school.
...life is good. ~cath
