Do your kids or grand kiddos make you laugh? Kids are a constant source of amusement for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, and others.
My friend, Sarah, shared this conversation during her son’s homework session:
Sarah (Mom): Julian, you need to write a sentence for your homework.
Julian dutifully writes “I see a dog.”
Sarah: No, Julian, a first grade sentence.
Julian: The education system has failed me. I got nothing.
Sarah (trying not to laugh): Get to work.
That’s so funny, Sarah. Julian didn’t want to write a first-grade sentence, but he talks like an adult!
My other friend, Maria, shared this story:
Maria Cisneros Toth: Just learned that our 10-year-old granddaughter made her 8-year-old twin sisters sign a contract stating that as long as they have bunk beds, she gets the top bunk. If they refused to sign, she threatened to tackle them with tickles. One of the twins is ticklish, so she signed on the dotted line. These girls keep me in stitches. 🙂
Deb shared a funny story about when she picked her grandson up from kindergarten one day. He was upset because he had an argument with one of the girls, Madison, over how to spell “was.” Madison insisted on w-u-z. He tried to correct her, but she wouldn’t listen.
Finally he said, “Madison, if you stop arguing with me, I won’t beat you up.”
I see his point. What logical thinking at such a young age!
Thanks for the giggles, Sarah, Maria, and Deb.
