My oldest daughter, Thalia, is three-years-old.
Almost every day she asks me when she can go to school.
And it breaks my heart.
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
It’s not that I don’t want to send her to school. I know that she would absolutely love it. She’s even offered to pay for it with the money in her piggy bank.
We’ve sent in preschool applications and applied for scholarships, but no word on either of them. If somehow we were able to get her into a good school AND got a tuition waver, I’m not sure if we’d be able to pay the tuition difference.
She may just have to wait until Kindergarten.
So with a pained smile, I always tell Thalia, “Soon. You’ll get to go to school soon.”
What heart breaking things do your kids say?
