The cashier at Babies R Us was very chatty with daughter. Then I guess she realized it was the middle of the day on a Thursday.
CASHIER: Why aren't you in school?
ME: Because she's only four.
CASHIER: Really? She's tall. Well, I guess you get to go in the fall?
ME: No. She won't be five until December. Kindergarten's still a year away.
This is the opposite of most of my childhood (and adulthood, too). Which went more like this:
ADULT: Are you in first or second grade now?
This tall gene is a miracle.
