“ Mmmm. Crunchy potatoey goodness” ~ Emma as she took a bite of her McDonald’s hashbrown yesterday morning.
My kids are so funny. It is not unusual for them to make me laugh OUT on a daily basis. Jacob’s little comments all day long crack me up.
The Algebra 1 curriculum we are using…Teaching Textbooks…LOVE IT! I like to call it Algebra for Dummies, and by that I mean ME! not Jacob! FINALLY, algebra makes sense! WHY OH WHY didn’t we have this in 1984??? SIGH. But I digress…So, the lesson will often have funny word problems and they are right up Jacob’s humor alley. Usually he will rattle off some extension of the word problem that is hilarious. For example, we are working with negative numbers this week. One of the word problems today was:
The second-rate superhero can only save 2 damsels in distress per decade, how many damsels can he save in x decades?
(The answer is 2x damsels, FYI.)
Jacob turns this into a whole scenario about “Second-Rate Superhero”. “Second-Rate Superhero. The strength of half a man. Able to watch bullets go flying by…” Anyway, it was funny.
And speaking of funny. My kids, my budding film makers, have been at it again. This time playing with stunt fighting and sound effects…
Didn’t you just love the bloopers?? Thank God for humor! It totally gets me through!
That, AND Special K Chocolatey Delight my new favorite cereal and indulgence! Can you say PMS?? That may have been TMI, but I’m just sayin’, it’s really hitting the spot these days. Get some!
