Mom: It’s your first day at a new school. I’m worried about you.
Paul: Mom, I’ll be fine.
Mom: Do you have all of your books and supplies in your backpack? Oh and I’ve packed you a lunch already.
Paul: You didn’t have to do that, Mom. I was going to buy lunch at school.
Mom: Now you won’t have to. I hope you make some new friends. It’s no fun being a loner. It’s not that you have to be popular. I just don’t want you to feel left out.
Paul: I’ll be fine, Mom. I’d better go, or I’ll be late.
Mom: Do you think the school will do something special to kick off the new school year? I hope your teachers aren’t too strict. Oh, your backpack weighs a ton! But you can leave most of your books in your locker, right?
Paul: They don’t have lockers at my new school, but I’ll be fine.
Mom: I hope the teachers don’t already have seating plans. I know you like to sit near the back of the classroom. And I hope you won’t have too much homework on the first day...
Paul: Mom, stop fussing. Everything will be fine.
Mom: You’re my baby and I’m worried about you.
Paul: Mom, I’m not starting kindergarten. I’m starting college, remember?
