Today was Daniel's first day back to school after Christmas, and I guess his teacher has decided they can write their own memos now. Anyway, Daniel really wanted me to read what his school journal-whatever-it's-called-book-thing said. So I flipped to it, and this is what it said:
I acted really impressed and said, "Wow! You wrote all that yourself?" He proudly confirmed my suspicions. I went on, "It must be because you're extra clever!" "No," Daniel tells me, "The teacher just wrote it up on the board, and we were supposed to copy it." It was way funnier in person, actually, not very funny at all in writing. You had to see the facial expressions, and hear the seriousness in his voice.
You know what else is weird? When your kid starts making pop-culture references and you're pretty sure he knows the meaning behind them. *sigh* They grow up so fast.
(PS John- Did you notice that I flipped the photo? Thanks for the clever idea.)
