Never Know What They Will Say

One of the best things about children is you just never know what they will say.  Now granted every once in a while that can be quite embarrassing when in public.  But this week we had a few humorous incidences.

  • The five year old was singing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”  when all of a sudden I heard what he was saying.  The last sentence was supposed to be “life is but a dream” but instead it was “Life is down a drain.” ??

  • My fifth grader answered some questions in her school work and I was checking her work.  She is studying the Revolutionary War.  Her problem was to:

List the names of three battles listed in this section in the order they occurred.

She listed Ticonderoga and Bunker Hill, but then she also listed Continental Congress. Congress is a battle? I almost gave it to her since she is more accurate than she realizes.

  • Then while shopping at Wal-mart this week I was trying to decipher the children’s handwriting for the grocery list. I have tried to get them to always write down an item when it is almost gone or when they open the last one. Two items though confused me at first.

      Spicy Roach

      Month Wash

  • Turns out it was supposed to be Spicy Ranch Salad Dressing and Mouth Wash. 🙂  Obviously spelling isn’t a strong point around here!  Wonder why?

  1. Funny stuff..they are so cute:)

    I think having them write things on the grocery list is a good idea..I may have to borrow that one.

    That has been helpful to get the children to write on the grocery list. We just keep a small spiral notebook in the kitchen which we fill a page with what is needed. Items not purchased are then written on the next sheet after shopping and the first sheet removed. Usually it works well but sometimes folks forget. Or worse mom forgets to buy it even with it on the list. 🙁

  2. My kiddso aren’t the best spellers either. It makes for some confusing reports and answers.

    Hello. 🙂

    It’s funny the baby at five can spell almost better than the middle school ones. But the baby’s is purely phonetic which makes it readable at times, but not accurate. The middle two you just sometimes wonder what they were thinking. Using SOS for school is sometimes difficult because even though it deducts for misspelling it needs to be close to get any credit. :0
