Kid’s perspective


It is that time of the year, when my kids will move from one grade to another in school. But before they move, there is a two week peiod of assessments that they will go through.

So, this morning, my son was awake quite early and in my eagerness to get a head start, I said to him, “Let’s start studying right now. After all, ’tis the early bird that catches the worm, and you will be done before lunch and then you can have fun.”

My son looked at me and asked, “Mom, have you ever thought of the poor worm and what this means to him? I feel like one now.”

I burst out laughing. Have never looked at it from the worm’s point of view.
