A few months before my little boy started kindergarten, I took him and his sister for a tour at his new school. Both of them loved the school. My little boy likes to take it all in before he feels comfortable enough to start talking and expressing his feelings. My little girl is more open and chatted most of the tour.

At the end of the tour, when we returned to the car, I asked my little boy if he liked the school and if he wanted to go there. Being a five year old boy, with a developing sense of humor, he said, “No.” and smiled at his sister. So, while driving, I jokingly told him that if he did not want to go to that school, it was fine with me and that we would find him another school. He said, “Okay.” and waited to see what I would do.

I picked up my mobile phone and supposedly called my wife. When she supposedly answered, I supposedly told her that our little boy did not want to go that school and that we needed to find him another one. She supposedly agreed with me.

The whole time, I could hear him in the back of the car, almost screaming,”No, I do want to go to that school.” I turned around, smiled at him and told him not to worry because he was going to go to that school and that I was only joking.
