Reason #238 why I won't be able to homeschool* this kid
She'll be smarter than me** by the second grade. Conversation in our house last night:
Abby: Mom, what sound does a cow make? Mom: Moooo, mooo. Abby: What sound does a sheep make? Mom: Baaa, baaa. Abby: What sound does a kitty make? Mom: Meooow, meooow (Hey, I grew up on a farm, I'm pretty good with these ones.) Abby: What sound does a seahorse make? Mom: [stunned silence.]
* Not that I was planning to anyway but whatever. ** Or should be "than I am"? - Just trying to prove my point I guess.
(Because I need to jot some of these down and here is as good a place as any.)
Thirteen Abby-isms 1. Zimmer = living room 2. Scarf = apron 3. Scooby = excuse me 4. My fine = her response to "do you have to go pee?" 5. Updowndairs = upstairs (downstairs is just that, downstairs) 6. Cake = snot 7. Meeker = music 8. Bernie = Bert & Ernie (hey, she's a time saver) 9. Eminano = Emiliano (her boyfriend from daycare) 10. Pay dot = play doh 11. No something in there = nothing in there 12. Cudder = colour 13. With = an unnecessary word. That is, "Mom, cudder me" or "Dad, pay dot me"
