Walking to school, first day back after the holidays.
"I've got butterflies in my tummy," says Maxi worriedly.
"That's because you're a bit nervous," I answer reassuringly. "The first day back can feel a little tricky sometimes."
"Nah," he says firmly, scuffing the worn toe of his shoe further into the grass. "It's because I swallowed a butterfly."
Happy last term in second grade, Maxi. Love your gorgeous ways.
Do you remember when I last freaked out about the state of Maxi's fingernails? Well, I wish I could do the same thing again, eeek! Just look at that boy-who-nobody-cares-for! The holidays do it to me every time...
What do you let slide in the holidays?
