You may think from the title that this is a post about Munchkin. You would be wrong.
ET is in Kindergarten. He has been going for nearly three weeks now. He has learned some new words from school...although he keeps saying that he just thought them up.
"What the hell is that?!" Followed by a discussion about why we do not say that.
"Dick." He said this means he is upset about something. Another discussion ensued.
I am impressed at the level of learning in kindergarten! I just hope that he isn't teaching his classmates anything inappropriate.
After watching the History Channel this morning about the September 11th Terrorist Attacks, and answering his many questions with the honesty that a 5 year old can understand, I made sure to tell him not to talk about it at school. Because, while we feel he is old enough to be told about it, other parents may not feel the same way. He has decided that he will just turn into Batman and kill all the bad people. Which, of course, prompted a discussion on the soldiers who are giving life and limb so that this type of thing doesn't happen again. He decided that Batman is a soldier.
