Walking home last week…
So, how was your day, lovey?
“Great, Mommy! We got to meet the first grade teachers today!”
Oh, that sounds like fun!
“It was! All of the teachers are really nice.”
That’s good. Because you’ll have one of them.
Unless you flunk.
Only kidding. So, anyway, you met the first grade teachers?
“Yes! And also we played a game where we were robbers.”
What kind of game is this?
“You know, where some kids are the robbers and stuff.”
Are there cops?
“No. Just robbers.”
Um, okay. So you’re all just thieves?
“Well, some of us are good guys.”
Did you get arrested?
“Mommy! We’re not really stealing anything!”
Well, that’s a relief. ‘Cause stealing’s, like, illegal and stuff.
“I know. It’s bad to steal.”
Indeed. In real life, you could go to jail.
“Or even to the principal’s office.”
Oh, my little Hermione, I do believe you need to sort out your priorities.
