Second grade seems to be the one.
The one that catapults kids into more serious studying.
...into homework is due the next day or there are consequences.
...into upcoming tests.
...into less art projects and more paragraphs.
...into less nurturing and more "this is how it is."
...into being able to eat 2 dinners.
...into wanting skinny jeans.
...into picking the backdrop for your school pictures.
...and wanting to get a haircut the night before.
Luckily, his heart hasn't made that leap yet, and he is still my innocent baby boy.
I'm not ready for him to grow up so fast. Can someone please slow this down?
