Well, I don't, but my first grader does.
While this is the third week of school, it's the first five-day week. And the typical first-grade transition kicked in, big time, on Tuesday.
Tuesday, J announced that he hates school.
Yesterday, he hated his jeans because they kept falling down. These are the same size 7 Slim jeans that he wore to kindergarten last year. He apparently has grown taller without gaining weight. I told him to eat more at lunch. J failed to appreciate my sparkling wit.
Today, J wanted to watch TV as soon as he got off the bus, but I told him that he couldn't watch until he did his homework. Commence the Stage Three Meltdown. He hates school, he hates homework, everything is stupid, he doesn't like me, blah blah blah.
Deep Breaths. This too shall pass.
