Reid(6) has successfully completed his first week of first grade. Since he did not go to Kindergarten I was a little worried about him.
The week went well. When I picked him up the first day he looked me straight in the eye and said, “Mom, it was a very good first day“.
I have asked him about what he is learning. For the most part his learning has centered around the likes and dislikes of his classmates.
After day two he came home and excitedly declared, “There are two girls in my class that like BOY things. They like Lego.com!”
And then there was this…
Reid: There is a boy in my class that does NOT like Star Wars.
Yes! He told me. He doesn’t like Star Wars at all.
Everyone likes Star Wars. It is the popularist thing.
I know it is popular, but this boy doesn’t LIKE popular things.
He will probably come back tomorrow and say he likes it.
No. I asked him two times and he said he doesn’t like it.
Sometimes people change their minds. Girls do that a lot. Boys don’t do it though.
He doesn’t like Star Wars. He said it.
He must not be a boy.
He doesn’t like pink.
He must not be telling the truth.
He said it!
Reid, you will learn that sometimes people lie.
