"Mom, I'm a littlenervous about kindergarten," Maya said from the backseat yesterday.
"What makes you nervous? I asked.
"Maya," Guillermo politely interrupted. "Most kids in kindergarten aren't nervous by the time they are in second grade."
I choked back a laugh. In second grade, two whole years away. As kind as he was being, that's a long time to go, especially for that a 4 1/2 year old.
"Do you still get nervous at school," I asked Guillermo.
"No," he said. "The only time I was nervous was during the fire drills."
