More Honesty

Distraction is the best way to handle any child's (or any 31 year-old-female's) crisis. Today I called Sully to my desk when he started crying during math, his best subject. I hugged him and asked all the usual questions: are you sick, did someone hurt you, etc... then I tried the distraction trick. "Hey look at these balloon bumblebees we're going to make today. Aren't they fun?" In a less than encouraging voice he said, "Not so much."

Well, I do have to give him points for a funny English phrase and his honesty.

P.S. He ended up really liking his bumblebee.
