Schooling the Drama Queen
I've mentioned before what a drama queen my 7-year-old daughter is. On days when she is a little wired (like today), teaching her is a unique experience. Observe the following real conversations in our house this morning:

Drama Queen, proudly: Mommy I spelled purple-itioner!

When I looked at the dry erase board, it said "perpendicular."


10 year-old-daughter: Mommy, how many bones are in your foot? [I taught the kids' homeschool co-op human anatomy class in the fall.]

Me: I don't remember, honey; there are several.

Drama Queen: Your bladder!

Me: She asked how many bones are in your foot.

Drama Queen: Oh--I thought she said butt! Your bladder looks like a strawberry.

This conversation was wrong on so many levels I can't even begin to analyze it.



Anxious to finish schooling and get out into the fresh morning air, Drama Queen ran into the kitchen where I was teaching her brother.

Drama Queen: I finished phonics on the computer! I typed those letters and then the spaces and then the letters and then the spaces and then the letters.

Me: You mean sentences?

Drama Queen: Yeah--sentences!

I so enjoy reading things like these. It makes the conversations I have with my children seem more "normal" in some odd way. ;-)

After a long labor and poor abdominal muscles, my bladder looks more like a watermelon.

That is too funny. I've had lots of conversations like that. I can also 'hear' those little voices when I read this stuff.
