And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all. So inspired by this post, I decided I’d ask Nathan these three questions every day after school…
What is something that made you smile today?
“I had fun playing with the cooking toys in the classroom. And I liked looking at the picture of our family that you packed in my snack box.”
What is something that made you cry today?
“A boy poked my eye at the playground. That made me feel very angry and sad.”
What is something that you learned today?
“I learnt how to find my name on my drawer. And the teacher read a book to us about ‘Spot Goes to School’.”
But the best part of the day for him was seeing us all waiting for him at home time and going home.
Nathan summarises it best in his own words…
"Sometimes I felt sad,
Sometimes I felt lonely, and
Sometimes I felt happy."
…Which pretty much sums up life in general actually.
