My kids were in public school when we lived in Plattsburgh, but now that we live in the Bronx I wanted the small school environment. Jorgie goes to a private school in Manhathan and Emi to the same Catholic school my daughter went when we lived here.
With all the trouble we had for the last 2 years, I wasn't even thinking about enrolling him for his first communion, for which he was due last spring. The teacher is aware, but that s another story.
On Thursday they had a mass to celebrate the opening of the school year and everyone attended. I remembered about it today and asked Emmanuel, to make sure he didn't get the communion. He said: Oh! I did! They gave it to me, I chewed it and swallowed. I could not control myself and laughed. I explained to him (again) that he was not supposed to get it until the spring. He said. Don't worry, I have no rush to get it again; it didn't taste good. I don't wish to upset anyone, but I thought it was too funny.
