Gigi: I’m ready for kindergarten…like, right now.
Cassie: I know. We’ve already had this discussion.
Gigi: I’m making sure you don’t forget.
Cassie: I won’t forget, but I’ve told you over and over again that there’s nothing I can do about it.
Gigi: Who made the mistake that I couldn’t go to kindergarten this year?
Cassie: No one made a mistake. It’s the rule…because of when your birthday falls. Besides, you love Parkside Montessori Nursery School.
Gigi: Yes, but….
Cassie: You’ll go to Kindergarten next year. Okay?
Gigi: But when I go to kindergarten…then that’s going to be a mistake.
Gigi: Because then I should be going to FIRST grade. You shoulda fixed it THIS year. That’s a BAD mistake, Mom.
(Jesus, Lord and all that.)
