Last night we were talking to one of my boys (who shall remain nameless while this is still a Hot Topic Issue in our household).
Having just returned from Back To School night, we were asking him about the assignments and grading policies some of his teachers had shared with the parents. One class in particular had an outside reading assignment and this particular boy had not even chosen a book, let alone started reading it. (Insert Lecture #173: “School-work, Priorities and You: How to get along together”.)
At this point the aforementioned boy states:
“Look, I know that I’m smart and all that…… I just don’t excel at working.”
(Note to self: buy more wine.)
you could write a book at all the smart-*** comments that com out of your house.
i’d buy it!
Your kids had to get this from somewhere! 🙂
I agree with Becca, start that book NOW!
I want to come to your house. Love the quips that come from your kids.

I think this is a lot like how iKeith describes me (but not anymore because I kicked his ass)…Smart in my own way!
Oh geez, that’s a nice excuse, huh?
I wanna guess who it is…I bet I can!
Sigh…what are we to do with those boys. I can see why you need that glass of wine. I’m sure you’ll keep working on him 🙂
Hey there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I love meeting new people! Cute blog!
Wouldn’t it just blow you away if the job he chooses for his career is super labor intensive or really mind involved. ha ha ha 🙂
