- Ring piano teacher for Kate
Kate: "When will be next Tuesday?"
Me: "The day before your birthday" (thinking this would be a good point - how wrong I was)
Kate: "When I turn 5?"
Kate: "Where will I be on my birthday?"
Me: "It's Wednesday, so at Kindy."
Kate: "But when I'm 5 I don't go to Kindy anymore!"
Me: "Yes sweetie, that's right. It will be your last day."
