Where's the food?
My precious Cooper is learning to be so independent these days. Last week he mentioned to daddy that he had been eating breakfast at school. Now, we provide breakfast for him here. Apparently he thought that because the K-2 grade kids wait in the Cafeteria in the mornings that he was supposed to eat breakfast there to. So, he was going in, getting in line with the other kids and giving them his "number". I think his exact words were, "I go in give em my number and they give me food." First let me say we had not put any money into his account because there was no need. He eats here before he leaves, and takes his lunch. Second, we had never told him his number. This cutie patootie was going in and giving him #258 and I guess they would look into those big blue eyes and give him food because 258 is his bus number. I love love love this boy! Yesterday, we told him you may eat breakfast in the cafeteria but we need to give you money. We gave him a dollar. When we asked what he ate he said, "I just had some chocolate milk". He did not get his change back either : ) I guess we do owe a bit of money so we will let that slide (tee-hee). We have been cracking up for days over this. When I told his teacher, she asked if it was ok if she shared this with the administration because everyone loves stories of independence gone astray. She mentioned how much she was enjoying having Cooper in her class because he is always good for a great comment and laughter. That's my boy!
