September 2011, Wyatt is five-and-a-half.
Yesterday Wyatt got 5 minutes of “modified recess” (i.e. kindergarten detention).
Me: “How was school?”
Me: “No modified recess?”
Wyatt: “Nope. But I did have to push in all the chairs and put away the green folders.”
Me: “Was that a consequence?”
Wyatt: “Um, actually, I think it was a privilege. Well, it was either a consequence or a privilege. I couldn’t really tell… But I kind of liked it.”
