One Saturday afternoon, Tia (Aunt) and Son #1 struck up a casual conversation. Tia was curious about Son #1 and the upcoming school year. She began. "Are you excited about first grade?"
Son #1 glanced up from the collection of cars in Abuelita's (Grandma's) playroom and responded. "Oh yeah. I can't wait. I'm going to miss kindergarten, though."
Tia asked. "Why?"
Son #1 said. "Because I'm not going to the same school. I'm going to miss my friends."
Tia was curious and questioned Son #1 a bit more. "So what did you learn in kindergarten?"
"I learned about math and I learned to read and about gardens. Oh and I learned about the BAD FINGER." Son #1 stated.
"The BAD FINGER???" Tia replied a bit shocked.
"Oh. Yeah. We never use the BAD FINGER." Son #1 explained as he half held it in the air. "My best friend showed me."
"Do you have any other friends." Tia asked trying to change the subject.
"Oh. Yeah. I like to play with my girl friend. We're going to get married." Son #1 announced.
"What does she look like?" Tia asked with amusement etched on her face.
"A Girl" Son #1 replied nonchalantly.
Tia exploded into giggles. Conversations with six year old kids are amazing.
