Mommy: I have to finish my chores, so I can’t play anymore.

Thing 1: Why? (x300)

Mommy: I have to do more chores now so I can be the one to pick you up from school every day.

Thing 1, Thing 2: What chores can we do? Let’s put away the clothes! Let’s clean up! I can help! Clothes are put away! What’s next Mom?

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. No crying until after Wednesday, the first full day of Kindergarten. This is harder and more precious and more beautiful than I thought it would be.
