The Calm Before Normal

T.Puzzle was unusually calm this morning.  As we entered his school he quietly walked up to the receptionist and said ‘good morning’.  He stood placidly in place as I signed the attendance binder.

After I had dropped him off and was getting ready to leave, the receptionist commented on his demeanor this morning.  I said he didn’t quite seem himself.

It is rather telling if my child acts ‘normal’ or ‘calm’ that it is immediately assumed something is amiss.

Will the day come when rowdiness is the new normal?  If so, I will be on easy street.
