Not quite 3 weeks into kindergarten, and I hear what's sure to become a familiar drone for years to come. "I'm tired. I don't want to go to school today."
We make some final wardrobe adjustments, and Helena's attitude relaxes a little before she puts on another.
But they'll probably have a détente she tells me, as she stretches out on her rumpled bed, assuming a pose of repose.
"Une détente! C'est plus cool qu'une sieste."
Oh, really? Why's that?
She raises a cocky little eyebrow. "Mais, oui! C'est pas la garderie; I'm in school now."
