After my first child's first day at kindergarten, I asked how it went. She launched into a detailed description of how a pack of older students surrounded her and started pushing her around and calling her names. She said that she made a break for it and was able to make it safely to her class.
I felt a rush of panic...
Until I realized that one day of school wouldn't have altered my daughter's wild imagination. "Okay," I said, "What really happened at school today?"
She sighed and answered dejectedly, "Nothing, Mom… just a boring old day."
