Everyday I ask the kids, "So, how was school?" at dinner time.
Everyday is usually the same.
Tori: Good, except.........
This is my list Monday-Friday of how school went for Tori.
Monday: Good, except a boy pushed me down at recess. It was an accident, but still.
Tuesday: Good, my teacher wants us to do the Reflections contest for our art project. We don't have to enter if we don't want to, but I want to. (This is one of the rare, non-negative statements. I'm so proud of her!)
Wednesday: Good, one of the kids in my class got in trouble though. You know, Anthony.
Thursday: (I didn't ask the question at dinner, but she's had a rough day.) Mom, I got frustrated today at recess. When we were playing 4 square this other boy kept doing Cherry bombs and we had told him he couldn't do it anymore. So I did a huge Cherry Bomb back at him. He didn't like it very much.
(sorry didn't mean to publish this yet. I'll add more to it as the week progresses.)
