Elly started a no school campaign earlier this year shortly after I informed her that she would go to preschool next year. Like most things, I assumed it was a phase and she would grow to love the idea of going to school and hanging out with other kids. Instead Elly has taken to pointing out at every opportunity, like when I mention how smart she is or what a great memory she has, that she knows everything already and thus does need to go to school.
Elly is 3.5 years old!
I expect a know-it-all attitude from a teenager, not from a toddler. What is going on?
Just yesterday, when we were playing with her magnetic map
(Thank you, Aunt Michelle and Uncle George. Awesome gift!)
and Elly pointed out Russia, China and the USA, she proceeded to tell me how bored she would be at school because she knew so much.
It doesn’t help that Dan mentioned that he too was bored in school. Although it does allow me to blame him. Truly, this is all his fault.
