That’s My Boy!

Some parents would call it a “proud parent” moment when their child knows the answer in class that no one else does, and I suppose I would as well . . . but some things are more impressive to me than factual knowledge.

For instance, when my son’s teacher asked his class if they were excited about the new program they were going to be using in class soon, one by one all my son’s classmates dutifully indicated that they were; meanwhile my son’s symbolic “no” floated lonely and alone next to a sea of yeses.

My son remained unyielding though, because while he was neither for nor against said new program, the question had been was he “excited” about it, and excited about it he was not.
