5 years, 9 months.
This is your first week of being in Kindergarten all day long. I can tell you love it and that you’re having a good time making new friends.
Based on conversations I’ve been hearing you have with Mommy, apparently you and your new friends have been having meetings on the playground as part of what you call “The Butt Club” where you all “talk about butts.”
I appreciate this concept. It’s like an underground movement where Kindergartner boys can meet secretly to freely discuss the greatness of “butts”; a topic that is taboo in the classroom.
It would be my speculation that “having gas” would be a popular topic of discussion, as you and your friends of The Butt Club talk about butts.
On Tuesday when I came home from work, I handed you a surprise I picked up from the treasure box at the dentist office: a bendable alien toy.
You were so excited when you turned him around and saw that he had a visible butt!
This toy alien gave you much joy, and entertainment, for the rest of the evening; eventually, a clever and original idea was born:
You asked Mommy about having an alien-themed birthday party for when you turn 6 in November. Unsurprisingly, you were quick to also mention the inclusion of “butts” as part of the theme, as well.
We’ve still got 3 months to figure out how to accomplish this theme for your birthday party. Last year, we didn’t have an official party for you, since we took a trip to Florida to celebrate instead.
But with a newborn sister, and a week-long trip to San Diego for Uncle Jake’s wedding at the end of September, another trip in November is unlikely.
So maybe an alien-themed is possible… I’m just not so sure about the butts.
