Talk About Growing Up Too Fast

One of the little guys at the Training Station was away with his family in another state for about three months.  Earlier this week the kids in his class learned that he was coming back.

On the way to school Monday, another little boy in the class was telling his mom about how his friend was returning.  He got to thinking about the time that had lapsed and said to his mom: “Do you think he’s all grown up now?  Maybe he’s in high school!”

It’s funny to catch a glimpse of how little kids try to piece things together and make sense of the world around them.

One of Carolyn’s kindergarten students this week got really excited when he realized that Carolyn couldn’t read his mind.  All day long he talked gleefully about how she couldn’t tell what he was thinking.

  1. That was nice of Carolyn not to spoil his excitement.

  2. Trust me dude–with this kid, there really is no telling what he’s thinking!

  3. By the way, Carolyn had a great idea about the Training Station kids. On that boy’s first day back, she said we could’ve had a man walk in the room and had the teachers tell the kids he was their friend, all grown up. That would’ve been hilarious!

  4. Do you know the song, “Think Happy Thoughts”? I think it goes something like.. “Thoughts. Think thoughts. Think Happy Thoughts.”

  5. Um, thanks Katie. But I’m not sure this boy’s thoughts were happy–or at least non-mischievous–thoughts.
