Today we learned about Abraham Lincoln!

Oh yeah? What about him?

This guy snuck up behind him and shot him in the head and he died.

Who was Abraham Lincoln?

He was one of our previdents.

What does it mean to be a president?

It means he is the boss of us. He teaches everybody, like ya'all and me, and grandma, and grandpa.

Teach us well Mr. Prevident!

Pirate School

I received a new friend request on Facebook yesterday, accepted, and did my usual - went straight to the pictures! As I was scrolling through images of my friend and his family, my son plops down next to me on the couch and looks along with me, usually wanting me to open up pictures of kids - especially if they're pretty girls!

Mommy, is that when you were in college?

I have never discussed college with him that I can recall, so I respond "What do you know about college?"

College is you go and they like tell you what to do.

"Well, not quite honey. College is school. You go to elementary school, then middle school, then high school, then college. And if you need to, you go to more school. Like, you want to be a pilot, so you would go to pilot school after."

But the pirate school is in North Carolina! (When we lived in NC, the local high school's mascot was a Pirate...)

"Not pirate, pilot! You want to be a pilot, right?"

Oh, yeah! I though you said pirate!

Are there Embry-Riddle Pirates?!?!? :^)

B... U... T...

When I came home from work yesterday, my son greeted me in his typical manner...

Mommy, I had a green day! Mommy, we did jump rope again! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!

After I got him to breathe, he told me he had new words to learn, and he pulled out the strip of green paper with his weekly words:

with ---- not ---- but

Then he proceeded to sound out the words...

www... ih... th... with!

nnn... aw... t... not!

b... uh... t... that's but! And it's like but (gestering in a "however" fashion with his hands - looking like a little politician) not butt (pointing to his derriere)!

Glad we got that cleared up!!
