Well, I've had to have the talk...

No, not that talk, jeez, she's only 6. I've got at least 6 more months before we have to have that talk.


I'm referring to the "Kindergarten is the last year of 1/2 day school". Yes, last night I had to break the brutal truth of a normal school day to my child. She was not happy. I mentioned that school would be starting in two weeks, which at first really excited her. Then she said "I hope I get half..." I was shaking my head before she could finish. I told her that 1st grade was a full day grade. She tried to bargain with me to start full days in 2nd grade. I have to give her credit, I didn't see that coming. So she is now aware that she will be in school for a full day, although I doubt she understands exactly how long that is. With any luck she thinks she'll be in school until I get home from work so the realty will be a good thing. LOL

Ok, so I don't see this being the end of your conversations. There will be bargaining in the next two weeks I would imagine. :)
