It was Open House at the grade school tonight. I went into Lexi's classroom, listened to her teacher talk, looked at the papers she'd written/drawn, and took the requisite peek in her desk. Lexi had a paper hanging on the wall that read, "I wish I was a cat because then I could go to the bathroom whenever I wanted." You know, as opposed to being a human since she can only go to the bathroom between 2:00 and 3:00 pm. I felt the need to explain to Lexi's teacher that she actually can use the bathroom whenever she wants to at home.
Then I went to Jackson's classroom. I took a peek in his desk and found half a dozen wrinkled papers just shoved in between his books. I started thumbing through them and found this...
Yes, it's Booger Boy.
There were also drawings of giant cannibal peanuts eating their peanut families.
That there is some prime time learnin' goin' on, folks. Brings a tear to my eye. Of course, I wasn't quite as proud as I was earlier today when Clay burped so loudly at the library that a ceiling tile crashed to the floor, the sprinklers were set off and no less than 5 librarians turned and stared at us in shock and disbelief. To Clay's credit, he didn't burst out laughing, but immediately apologized which confused me and made me wonder if the child standing next to me was really my kid or an alien replica.
Yep, it's going to be a fun school year.
