When my daughter started first grade, I asked her if she was enjoying school. After her answer to the affirmative, I inquired what she liked most. “Recess” was her response. I pointed out that she has “recess” at home all the time, so why was that her favorite?
Finally she declared: “Because I don’t have to empty the dishwasher, clean my room, or make the teacher’s bed!”
