This little boy’s first day of school got off to a rough start.
A Los Angeles boy burst into tears when a reporter asked him if he would miss his mom just before he started pre-kindergarten on Tuesday.
Andrew Macias, 4, first answered “no” and laughed a little bit about it in a report by KTLA-TV. The boy had his backpack on and his hair combed for the big day at City Terrace Elementary School in East L.A.
