Husband, " You guys know that when you go to high school, people don't just go around singing and dancing, right? " Both kids in unison "I wish!"
Today, Sunshine was singing My Country Tis of Thee.... "My country tis of thee. Sweet land of Italy...."
*side note, we're not Italian.
I asked Monster today, "If [kid who has been bullying you] is in chess, do you want me to talk to [the teacher] and just tell him that [the boy] is being a jerk to you and maybe not pair you guys up? Or do you want to deal with it yourself?" Monster's response, "No, it's OK. I need to learn to deal with this kind of stuff on my own." That's bravery.
My boy has a heart of gold. He counted his money in his piggy bank tonight and said, "That's way too much! I need to give some to charity!" . Then there's Sunshine who, after counting her money, said, "That's it?"
Sunshine was singing Hanukkah songs and Monster tells her, "You should call Nana and sing for her!" Nana is Catholic....
I can't remember how the conversation started, but somehow, this is how a conversation with Sunshine ended....
Me: You know you don't pee out of your vagina, right?
Sunshine: You don't?
Me: No, there's a tiny hole in front of it that you pee out of.
Sunshine: So what's it there for? Decoration?
This picture gave me my laugh for the day. I asked Sunshine if she knew what this was. She didn't. I told her and then asked if she even knew what a clothespin was. This was her reply. "It's those things that you hook to a zipline before they had drying machines." Ah, how times have changed :)
I started volunteering in Sunshine's classroom today. Her teacher has a policy that students can escort their parents down to the office when it's time to leave. Little Miss Sunshine didn't know what the word "escort" meant. So when her teacher said, "You can escort your mom down to the office", she looked and me, said, "Shoo" and made little shooing motions with her hands. I thought her teacher was going to cry she was laughing so hard.
