Things I learned in school today.
1. George’s mom is a “Speech Fa-shee-aw-gist.” And while she might be a kick-@$$ speech pathologist, she obviously doesn’t practice at home. (Thank God.)
2. Alenka ran up to the kindergarten teachers today and shouted at the top of her lungs, “Jack say a BAD WORD! He say FAWK!” And now that I know that she knows the bad words, I’d say she could exit the program. (I will obviously have to help her with her vowels, of course.)
3. Jack knows FAR more words than I imagined, and has apparently been practicing them every day at recess. He’ll be walking the track at recess until he’s old enough to drive. (Not drive me crazy, just drive.)
4. If, during reading centers, you ask a child to say buttonhole, prepare yourself. (“I said BUTTON-hole. BUTTON, BUTTON, BUTTON!”) Oh Lord we laughed for an eternity. And when I turned to Jack and he said, “crack” I FELL OFF my chair. And yes, I will never use that particular compound word lesson again. EVER.
5. If you hear a child singing a song he wrote called, “I have gas, gas, gas!” be sure to avoid said child for the remainder of the day.
And while this particular saying may or may not have any bearing on anything in my life, I adored it so much I had to share it. Come on. It IS funny, isn't it??
