School Days
Today is last day of the first full week of school. Overall, things are going well. We've had a few good days and a few bad days, which is to be expected I suppose.

Earlier in the week. Harry was anointed appointed Line Leader on Monday, which in his mind makes him Line Leader for life. He thought he'd secured a great position in pre-k, one of power and authority. I'm sure he thought it would give him an advantage for the rest of his academic career and I could just picture him in 25 years on a job interview, telling his prospective employer that he is well suited for the work because he was chosen as Line Leader on the very first full day of pre-k and is therefore a born leader.

He was none too pleased to discover on Tuesday that his teacher had staged a coup and made someone else Line Leader, which was followed by a meltdown and a not-very-good-rest-of-the-day.

The following day Harry's teacher mentioned that she's noticed he is very particular (which is an understatement), and really, really likes for things to be a certain way. Namely, his way.

And for the life of me I don't know where he gets that from. Ahem.

Anyway, we've been working on some things, namely sharing and understanding that school is about learning and his place within the class, not HIM and a bunch of other kids who show up on a regular basis. This has been difficult for the World's Cutest Dictator but he's getting there.

What a cutie! He'll finally see that the others get turns at being a classroom helper.
