Me: R, what is your favorite part of first grade?
R: The three recesses, for sure....But there's one problem, mom.
Me: What's the problem?
R: Two of the recesses are really short because of the food thing.
Me: The food thing?
R: Yeah, in recess #1 we have our snack, then we get to play after. And at the middle recess, we have lunch first, then we play. Uhhh, mom?
Me: Yeah, R?
R: I don't mean to complain or anything, but you gave me too much food for lunch. I barely had time to play with Sammy 'cause I had to eat my whole lunch!
Me: I understand. I'll try to put less in tomorrow.
R: Yeah, that's a good idea.
