Major news on the school front this morning.

A 42-year-old man is admitting he bawled like a teething toddler the entire first week of Kindergarten.

"I was such a super-sized sook my mom and younger sister stayed in class all week with me. They sat in the corner, hiding behind books.”

Asked why this startling confession is relevant or important, the man —known to the Canada Revenue Agency as "Stephen Bartlett" — didn't pull any punches.

"It's not."

The man says he's coming forward to comfort parents whose sons or daughters are crying Kindergarten tears this week.

"They'll get past it. Thirty-seven years later, I'm fine. If you don’t believe me, ask Mom. She’s just over there in the corner, behind the tattered copy of Cat in the Hat.”
