Meg that is.
She loves school.
She wants to go on the holidays.
But she doesn't like maths.
She told K she didn't want to do maths anymore. She wants to go to school but she doesn't want to do maths. (Factual, engineer but not very in touch with a 7 year old emotionally) K told her you have to do maths at school. Allllll the way through school.
Until University? I don't want to do maths for that long.
Well, you only have to go to school until you finish JHS. After that you're there because you want to be.
So some people don't do maths after JHS?!
That's what I'm going to do! I'm not going to go to high school then I won't have to do maths!!
Ever since that conversation I have been having long and involved conversations about what Meg intends to do after JHS while not going to HS. After explaining that legally she still wouldn't be able to open a cake shop or get married (her current future ambitions) she has decided she will just play and hang around the house and go to the park until she's 18. Fabulous!
The gangster is Amy. Well gangster in training. Her little friend with the lightening bolt hairstyle has taught her quite an impressive vocabulary. She also has enough Japanese (or rather non-me) DNA in her to be able to roll her Rs like a proper little gangster. Unfortunately (or rather fortunately!) she doesn't quite know how to use her new words and comes out with beauties like "If you don't stop teasing me I won't cut out your tongue." Poor kid needs to get some more practice before she starts her motorcycle gang. That and get the hang of riding without her training wheels as I'm pretty sure it won't be good for her street cred. to have me running along behind her pushing the back of her motorbike as she revs the engine, huh?
