Tales from Middle School

My daughter told me a story about what happened in her math class.  This boy wearing a spider man shirt climbed out the window during class.  Nobody except his group noticed on round 1, so he did it again.  This time the teacher caught him and told him that we don't climb outside the windows in this classroom.

My daughter was telling me how he hardly got in trouble at all.  My son told her that it was good for him. 
My daughter replied, "But not good for the audience."

Have some ketchup.

Perhaps you've seen the t-shirt that reads:
 "I have ketchup with my ketchup."

My son owns one in bright red. 

Today he's eating scrambled eggs.  This is what he's doing:  getting eggs on his fork.  Looking closely at it.  Takes the bottle of ketchup and puts some directly on the eggs that are on his fork.  Puts the ketchup down.  Inspects the food on his fork again, I'm guessing he's making sure there's at least a 50/50 mixture.  When he's satisfied, in his mouth it goes.

And then he's repeating the process with the next bite.  And the next.  And the next. 

Lol, it was too funny watching, had to share.  :)

What was that you said?

My daughter is reading a book and finds out the main character is 22.  Surprised, she asks me, "Mom, she's 22?"

My reply, "Yes.  Kind of young, hu?"

While looking down into her book she replies, "Kind of old."

Me, "What?"

She looks up at me and straight faced tells me, "Ya mom.  Kind of young."

Getting to Know You

It's back to school, and my daughter was filling out one of the famous "getting to know you" papers.  On it, she is asked to fill out her hobbies.  Her reply, "Music, art, and bugging my dad."

We're at church this past Sunday and saw our friend
who just had her baby about 3 weeks ago. 
She is very thin and beautiful, and doesn't look like she's ever
been pregnant.

After walking away, my youngest leans into me and whispers,
"See mom?  She's had a baby and her body is pretty."

Last night we're checking my daughter's alarm 
for this morning and guess what was playing on the radio?

I'll be hooooome for Christmas ......
