You’re probably wondering why I won’t be posting a blog entry today. My son is home today so his school can have parent/teacher conferences. (He’s doing fine. Good penmanship. Works well with others. Thanks for asking.) We decided that he should do his homework early while I worked on today’s entry.
As I was sitting down to write, he called for me for help. He was supposed to put his spelling words in alphabetical order, and had done that, but was missing one. I spent a couple minutes finding the missing word (“every”) and went back to write. A few minutes later, he called me back because he couldn’t find his math assignment (he had skipped one earlier in the week and forgotten).
A minute later, he called me back because he didn’t have a newspaper. The math assignment was to pick out something for sale from a newspaper or magazine ad and do math based on the price. I found him a furniture catalog, Newsweek, and a copy of Lucky.
Thirty seconds later, he called me back with more problems:
Newsweek doesn’t have ads.
|That’s the problem with liberal rags. Don't those commies know how important ads are to our nation?!|
|Unless he was going to buy a tiny, tiny chair.|
|Not really a problem, but we did have to spend a lot of time staring at it.|
|Hey! Pizza boxes go in the garbage can!|
He’s now yelling to me from his room asking what “free with rebate” means.
So, I’m not writing today. Sorry.
