We got to the elementary school and Caedon immediately turned to Gavin and said, "You can't come in...you are not old enough for kindergarten." "Caedon," I reminded him, "you are not going to kindergarten tonight. You are going to play with other kids and have pizza in the school where you will go next year."
After the meeting, I went to pick the boys up and Caedon ran over to another child and announced, "My mom is here. I have to go now. I'll see you tomorrow in kindergarten. I do need to call Mrs. Halligan (preschool teacher) and say Goodbye now that I'm a kindergarten kid."
On the way home, Caedon asked me, "Mom, will the bus pick me up tomorrow when I go to kindergarten?" Somehow, I don't think he's getting the concept of next year.
