Recap From First Day

One day down, 179 (or so) to go.

At the end of the school day yesterday, my son ecstatically ran over to our golf cart.

Me: "So how was it?"

Him: "First grade isn't hard at all! It's really, really easy! I know I can handle this!"

Me: "I knew you would love it!"

Of course, I had no idea how he would feel about it. I only hoped it would turn out well.

He did tell me one thing that raised my eyebrows.

Him: "Someone got in trouble for saying a bad word today."

Bad words already? I have to deal with bad words already?!

Me (trying to act nonchalant): "Oh, really? What happened?"

Him: "Some girl said "ding" and the teacher said that we don't say words like that in here."

This is a new one. I silently contemplate if new bad words have been added since I was younger.

Me: "Ding? Are you sure you heard her right?"

Him: "Yeah. She was sitting right beside me."

um... ok...

Me: "Well... if that's the rule, then just don't say it."

I still have no idea what actually happened, but if that's the worst word he hears for a while (forever would be impossible!), then I'll be grateful.
