Our spring homeschool co-op started this week, and as we were leaving the house my son asked my daughter what classes she was taking this year. When she replied that her schedule included Thread Crochet, American Girl, and Crafts, his response was, “Those are all GIRL classes!” (I pointed out that she is, indeed, a girl, so it seemed appropriate to me. He was unfazed.)
Big brother continued, “They’ll probably do a bunch of GIRL crafts; things like ‘Make a little diary about your favorite rainbow’ or something.”
When we left at the end of the afternoon, we had to head straight to another appointment. Below is a record of my conversation with the kiddos during that drive:
Them: Man…we are sooooooo hungry.
Me: Yeah, me too. If I weren’t mad at all of you, I’d stop and get you each a lemon pie.
Them: WHAT?! Why are you mad at us?
Me: Just to save money.
(They didn’t think this was nearly as funny as I thought it was.)
I hope each of you is having a great day and enjoying your conversations with those around you.
