Every morning on the way to school, Isaac asks, "Are we late today?" Although seemingly a simple yes or no question, we've actually developed quite a few alternate response options. Technically, Isaac is supposed to be dropped off between 8:10 and 8:20. At least once a week, he is dropped off between 8:25 and 8:30 and I am forced to admit, "I'm sorry, but yes we are late." Most of the time he arrives between 8:20 and 8:25, so I say, "Well, not really." Occasionally we roll in at 8:20 on the dot and, quite justifiably, I insist, "Absolutely NOT late." A time or two we have gotten there between 8:10 and 8:20, but this happens so rarely that I actually brand our arrival, "Early!" As a consequence, I'm not really sure Isaac has any idea at all as to what being on time means. Sigh.
