(old post from 2007)
Kate loves watching Blue’s Clues and especially one episode, “Steve goes to college”. So tonight, instead of reading she wanting me to tell her all about college. I used this perfect timing to tell her about learning and doing well in school.
Kate: “Is there a pink college? I want to go there.”
Me: “Sure I’m sure there are pink colleges. There is a Brown college. If you study really well in school, you can go to any college you want”
Kate: “I hope I study well”
Me: “Yeah, or else you may end up going to a gray and boring college, that won’t be fun”
