Friend 2: – We’ll have a great year, let’s make it the best one yet!
Mom: – Do you have everything ready for school tomorrow?
Child: – Yes!
Mom: – Have you packed your bag?
Child: – Yes, mom. I have!
Mom: – Are you sure? Because all your school supplies are here on the kitchen table.
Child: – I was just going to get them and put them in my back pack.
Mom: – Remember that you start middle school this year, that means you pack your own lunch.
Child: – I know, mom. You’ve already said that like a thousand times.
Mom: – I know, I just want to make sure you’re ready. You are going to have to get up earlier every morning.
Child: – Mom, I’m ready!
