Selecting who you sit next to in second grade.... That's a big deal! The Girl told me her list.*
Girl: First, I put down Grace, because we work well together in math class. My second choice was Johnny. And my third choice was Mary.
Me: You didn't pick Michael? You really like him! You've known him forever.
Girl: Well, the teacher specifically mentioned that we should pick people we work well with. Socially, Michael and I get along great. He makes me laugh, and we really have fun! Academically, I work better with the others. So that's who I chose.
Well, then. Carry on.
(I love it when my eight-year-old is more pragmatic than I am. I totally would have picked Michael.)
