I have one crossing guard kid who is just "all that and more".
You know...Mr Personality. Always smiling and happy. He must like school, because he's always rushing to get there, but he swears he doesn't like going. Once I asked him what he'd rather be doing and he said he'd rather be home "relaxing". He must be all of seven years old.
He walks to school with someone I thought was his dad. This guy is rather on the glum side, but who knows?
Yesterday, I was still out while he was returning from taking the kid to school I said "Your son is going to grow up to be president or something". The minute I said that I KNEW I shouldn't have. Mr. Glum snapped at me "He's NOT my son!"...but added "I know what you mean."
