Lunchroom helper to the rescue
He says there have been no problems. He just has to stand up to eat his lunch (he didn't qualify that as a problem).
So I said, um, what would you do if someone started choking?
And he shrugged and said with an optimistic uplift in his voice, "Hope for the best?"
Very proactive of you, Albus. Very proactive. (For the record, I suggested that in addition to hoping for the best, he head for the hallway and shout for a teacher.) But, really, I'm super-proud of him for volunteering to help out, and for sticking with it; and also for volunteering to torture parents walking their children home from school by being a school crossing guard, too. (Parents waiting for the 10-year-old kid in a safety pinny to tell them it's safe to cross know exactly what I'm talking about...)
**Photo from our summer holiday, but of course. Doesn't he look beautiful, and quite possibly, responsible?
