The Power of Ritual

For the past month or so, Jet and I have had this ritual on Tuesday mornings.

"I don' wanna go to school."

"Well, Mom and Dad are going to work, so you'd be awfully alone here if you stayed here by yourself."

Jet thinks. Then says, "I wanna go Holy Moses School!!"

"Well, we'll go to the Game School and see if it's closed. If it's open, we'll go in. If it's closed..."

"... we go Holy Moses School!"

He'd cheer up at that and, for the previous two or three weeks, when we got to Seven Oaks (aka Game School), he'd look a little hangdog at finding that I could open the door.

Today, though, we get to the door, open it, and Jet cheers, "It's OPEN!" and runs in and goes to his classroom.

Wow. The Power of Ritual...
