Learning Letters

I sat next to a friend of my daughter.  She is in kindergarten.  They just learned the letter “f.”  My daughter’s friend had filled a 3×5 card with “f”s.  He turned to me and said, “This is my report card.”

Now I could have encouraged him and told him how nice his “f’s” were and how smart he is.  The problem with this scenario is that I am not completely and entirely a kid person.  I figure being honest with this will help my children in the future.  When they go to counseling, they can start off with: “Well, Mom didn’t like children…”  Actually, I like kids and I love my kids but I have an aversion to snot.  Children contain an abundance of snot.  So much that it seems to continue to ooze out of their face.  Hence the phrase: Snot nosed kids.

Due to my unbelievably wonderful repertoire with children, I looked down at my daughter’s friend, saw his report card, heard him sniff, and replied, “Bit of an underachiever, don’t ya think?”

  1. Too funny. This evening my 6yo daughter asked me why I didn’t teach Grade 2. I said that there would be way too many kids in one room and I couldn’t handle it. (Well, that was my answer after she didn’t understand “Because they don’t get sarcasm). So, ya, I hear you about the little kid thing.
