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.
Her: WHAT?! WHEN IS IT OVER?
Me: Well, not until next summer.
Her: How long is that?
Me: Uhm…remember your birthday in the Spring? Not until after that?
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!
