OT - Tristan's first day of preschool!

He nearly ran in to the room today, at age 2 3/4, he was so e***d.
And woke up at 6am as well.  He is the youngest and smallest, but I
didn't want him to wait 3 or 6+ months just because of his birthday
because, well, he can read and loves math, and when we visited a month
or so ago to have a look around he clutched the multiplication board to
his chest, said, "I'm three now!" and didn't want to come home.  So, he
went off today with a packed lunch and a big grin on his face.  And came
home one tired and happy little boy, with lots of things to chat about.
  This is my favourite conversation *so far*:

Mama: "What was your favourite part of preschool?"
Tristan: "Playing outside in the garden."
Mama: "Who did you play with?"
Tristan: "With somebody else. Somebody Else opened the door and I
followed. Somebody else jumped off the step and I did too. Then we ran
around the garden and fell down. And laughed. And then Somebody Else
went back inside so I did too."
Mama (trying very hard not to laugh): "Was this person a boy or a girl?"
Tristan: "A girl."
Mama: "Do you know her name?"
Tristan: "No....."
Mama: "Perhaps you could ask her on Wednesday...?"

Sounds like "your" first day of school was exciting!

Precious! Particularly the "I'm three now!".

He sounds pretty smart, you'll have your hands full keeping him
entertained and learning :-)

LOL! You're keeping a journal of these conversations, right?
(If nothing else, it might make good blackmail material when he's a
***ager.)

It's only just started............. one of the main reasons I loved
being a stay at home Mum, just to listen to the wisdom of the little
people !
