What are they teaching kids in school these days?!
If there was a requirement to cover your textbooks when I was in school, we used brown grocery bags to do it. Nowadays, you can just buy these nylon stretchy book-covers that are ready to go. Because we’re in the middle of moving, I’m grateful for those stupid stretchy covers. Because when I am informed of a book-covering requirement with 5 minutes notice, I can hand over one of those covers and save myself some hassle.
I gave one to Conner yesterday. This morning over breakfast I asked him if he had all of his books covered.
“Yes, but I really hate those stretchy covers. You can’t open the book when they’re on there.”
“It’s not a pillowcase. It only goes on the cover. Doesn’t common sense tell you that? Not only from the name, Book COVER, but from a functional standpoint as well?”
“Oh. Now I see.”
I am so very afraid to know how he is adjusting to Middle School in other areas. I hope he can take Common Sense 101 as an elective.
