first grade social commentary


h got off the bus today and had a little surprise in his backpack... a stack off torn-off pages from his ex-girlfriend's (yes, it was a kindergarten flame that burned hot and bright) notebook. i flipped through the pages, and this was the very last one. i laughed so hard i choked and was crying. if you don't understand the language, i'll paraphrase: "This is Annie. She's popular. She acts so mean. She's good in school. She has good report cards and has 110,000,000 dollars. I hate her."

something about it's astuteness struck me as so funny, and reminded me of the angst we feel throughout our school careers. i just don't remember it starting so EARLY! maybe kids really are growing up faster these days. say it isn't so!

My son (also in first grade) seems to only have eyes for the sixth grade girls...

Oh, wait, this is from the ex-girlfriend's notebook? So this wasn't something written by your little guy? I was confused - thought he wrote about hating her after their little fling went sour! lol

Note to self: Please have a strong shot of coffee before attempting to comment at blogs!

sounds like somebody's jealous. I like how the picture of the girl she hates pictures her smiling :)!
