Me: How do you feel about going to kindergarten next year?
(Next year actually begins in a bit less than four weeks.)
L (after pausing for some thought): I don’t want to go, I do want to go.
Me: Oh, so you feel both ways. Why do you want to go?
L: ’Cuz I wanna make friends with the friends there.
Me: And why don’t you want to go?
L: ’Cuz I’ve never been there before.
(My first thought was, When did my little one get to be so wise? But the truth is, he has always been this way.)
