Thing 3 is the hardest one to wake up. He is not a morning person and prefers to wake up slowly. Getting him up for school during the week is a struggle.
Today we had the usual whining and resistance. Then he added, “I don’t want to go to school.”
He sounded serious. Like maybe something happened the day before. You hear about bullying and think the worst. Although, with Thing 3, he’s more likely to be the one bullying.
I asked him why he didn’t want to go to school.
He was quick to respond. And completely serious.
“Because it’s too much work”
Before you start debating how teachers give too much homework, consider this: He is in Kindergarten! And he was referring to this week’s unit on money (pennies, dimes, etc)
