Elliot, on The Office and Girls

Elliot was discussing his school day with me, and mentioned the silly antics of two boys who were then sent to the office. Elliot had a visit there last week. In fact, there seems to be a frequent stream of 1st grade boys to and from the office for their 5 minute "break." I was secretly relieved - in the kindest way possible of course - to hear other boys were also having the occasional challenge at holding it together. I said, "Wow. Sounds like lots of the boys are having a hard time controlling their sillies at school." "Yeah." he says, "But not the girls. The girls are always good listeners at school."
