My son J. is a pretty smart kid. He’s great at math, reading, telling time and he learned to ride his bike on the second push. But being six years-old he is prone to misunderstand things here and there, especially when it comes to his seat work. He’s always good for a kid story.
Last week he brought home the following paper:
Hilarious right? He did exactly what was asked. He added a car to the train. I didn’t even say anything to him. I just snapped the picture and shared it on Twitter and Facebook as soon as I could.
A funny little kindergarten misunderstanding, right? I didn’t think he would ever outdo that one.
Then today he hands me the following paper:
Though there are a couple of regular cars drawn in I was thrilled to see the little box cars in the upper-right corner. I realized that these instructions said “box cars” rather than just “cars” and assumed he had read the instructions, understood and followed them. That meant that the first paper’s instructions were to blame. I could put my son back into the genius category that every proud parent is sure their child belongs.
Then J. explains what I’m looking at.
“That was the hardest one,” he says quite exasperated. “It was hard to fit them all in ’cause I had to draw six cars and six boxes.”
Okay, so it’s Valentine’s Day so I’ll do this:
I wasn’t even supposed to have gone to the event. The people I was going with left me but my sister and her friends gave me a ride. I’m sitting with them at McDonalds wearing a light blue Fernandina Beach fishing cap with the front flipped up and I see this girl. My first thought, “That is the cutest girl I have ever seen.” Not fine (they say “hot” now)… cute. Cute as all get out. Like the standard of what cute is measured by. A strong cuteness. It was better than “fine” it was real. I had to talk to her.
I never would have except that she was in line to get food and happened to be with a friend of mine. I went up and started talking to Shannon, or whatever her name was, and soon enough I had met Jennifer.Continue Reading …
