Three More Reasons I Don't Homeschool

Joss "reading" his halloween card: "Which kind of candy is your favorite, and DAMMMNATION, and which kind of candy is your favorite, and DAMMMNATION, and which kind of candy is your favorite, and DAMMNATION (repeat another 4-5 times), in the name of Jesus Christ, amen."

Will and I had a very confusing conversation until figured out that he thought "flamboyant" meant both buoyant and flammable. Pretty understandable, but he kept talking about these flamboyant bombs floating around at sea and I just couldn't catch the vision.

Joss had his Halloween party at preschool and came home with a pumpkinload of goodies. He pulled out a little rubbery skeleton and said "Mama, do you think skeletons are spooky?" I, sensing the opportunity for a little teaching, said "No, I think skeletons are great! I have a skeleton and you have a skeleton and everybody has a skeleton inside of them to help them stand up and move around. Isn't that good?"
Joss turned around, pulled down his pants, mooned me and said "Can you see it in there?"

I'll never be able to use the word flamboyant without giggling a little again!
