First day of school aftermath

The scene: Sierra and I finishing up our game of Clue.

Me: Well, time for bed.  You have to go to be earlier now because of school.

Her: Aww man!  When is school done?  What about Halloween?  Will school be done by then so I can stay up later?

Me: No, school definitely isn’t over by Halloween.


Me: Well, not until next summer.

Her: How long is that?

Me: Uhm…remember your birthday in the Spring?  Not until after that?

Her: WHAT?!

I’m pretty sure in that very moment I shattered all good thoughts that can had about going to school.

We did let her know that she can stay up a little later if there is a Halloween.  That seemed to have cheered her up!
