On Tuesdays, Jack Henry attends Lunch Bunch after preschool. He loves it, I love it, everyone’s happy.
Today around 5pm, JH came up to me and out of nowhere said, “I don’t think I want to go to Lunch Bunch anymore. I mean, when I get home, and I have stuff to do, I just really don’t have time to do it all.”
Me, stifling laughter, because please, tell me about your crazy hectic schedule, child: “Well, since you’ve been home you’ve watched a movie, eaten a snack, watched your brother play the wii, helped me start the fire, done some drawing and played with blocks.”
JH: “Yeah, but I also had to get my show and tell ready, and that took up some time.”
We ended with me assuring him that he WILL be returning to Lunch Bunch every week, and a promise from me that I can help him better manage his time when he gets home late.
I love 5-year-olds :).
