    I don’t have the heart to tell him

    G and I were just having a little pre-quiet time conversation where he asked me about having to go to school on Monday. I looked at him perplexed saying “Of course you have to go to school on Monday! This isn’t a permanent vacation, you know!” (referring to our 4 day Thanksgiving week-end).

    Here is where I started thinking about how he has only JUST started kindergarten. After that will be school, and then more school, and then work: where being able to have a life of retirement and never-ending “vacations” is almost a lifetime away. Sorry, bud! I know *I’m* already looking forward to retirement, so I just can’t give him that bug yet. 6 might be a little too early to want to be retired.
