Being friends with a girl
Dalin's best friend moved away a while ago and he hasn't really found another "bestie" so I was asking him if there were any kids in his primary class that he wanted to be better friends with. He answered Tenley (the only girl in his class). When I asked why he told me, "Because you need to be friends before you can be a couple."
You may remember his "Principal Comment"on the first day of school. Day three brought, "I don't want to go to school anymore, can't I just get fired from that place?."
One of the behaviors Dalin's kindergarten teacher has been trying to teach her class is self control (i.e. raise your hand and wait to be called on before you speak). While we were at Target Dalin wanted to go to the men's bathroom by himself. Despite my overly parinoid parenting style I relented. After we came home he said,
D: "Mom I wanted to say something not nice but I used self control and I didn't say it."
M: "What did you want to say?"
D: "When I was in the bathroom at Target, there was a guy in there who was wierd and kept getting more and more paper towels and hand sanitizer. I wanted to say 'You old coot', but I didn't"
Mom did you know In-N-Out makes their fries with love? It's because they love their customers money.
