Ethan and I are in the car the other day and we are talking about why he changed preschools.Â I see every ‘discussion’ as anÂ opportunity to brainwash and we start talking about how when people get older they move on to different schools.
Me: Next you will go to kindergarden, then elementary school, then middle school, then high school, then COLLEGE!
Ethan: Will you go to college with me?
Now at first I hesitated, I was going to be truthful and say ‘no, mommy can’t go to college with you, some things you need to do on your own.’Â We are big believers in truth and brainwashing over here.Â But then I realized that when the kid is 18 the LAST thing he will want is me tagging along with him to college, so stretching the truth in this one little instance wasn’t going to hurt us so I said:
Me: YES!Â We will have so much fun!
So Ethan and I are going to college together.Â Where do you think we should go, big ten, ivy league, state school?;)
