One of the pieces of schoolwork that Alpha brought home this week was a March calendar. They were given a number of events that would be happening in March and they filled them in.

What I noticed first was that the school (or his class at least) celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday. I never knew when it was. Now I know, although I don’t know what good that does me.
But the second thing I noticed was his editorial note on March 9 – a day of no school. He drew a frowny face to denote his sadness at the prospect of no school.
I remember liking school. I liked summer break, but I also enjoyed the start of fall and going back to school. I could start waxing nostalgic here, but I’ll skip it. All that to say this: Alpha really does like school.
Beta, on the other hand, has been sick this week. He missed preschool on Monday. Tuesdays he doesn’t have preschool anyway. On Wednesday his cough was still prevalent, so we told him that he would be missing preschool again.
They may look similar, Alpha and Beta, but looks can be deceiving.
So the king said to me, “Why is your face sad though you are not sick? This is nothing but sadness of heart.” Then I was very much afraid.
