New Year's Confetti
We were in NYC a couple weeks ago and added our wishes to the confetti that will be thrown in a few minutes <3
Hey, can you make me a lasagna? --15yo at 2pm
9th grader defining Shakespearean words:
Whence- a quarterback we traded
Woo- often followed by 'hoo'; shouting support for someone
Such a waste of time but I'm dying
So dumb hahaha
Very Hungry Caterpillar
Since finishing a full dinner around 6pm, my son has eaten a large bowl of rice with leftover Chinese chicken and broccoli, a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, a granola bar, and already mentioned ideas for dessert.
I call him the Very Hungry Caterpillar hahaha
There's always one teacher who gives work over break
Last week I commented on a friend's post about how my son likes to eat his latkes, this week he asked me if we had ingredients to make matzo ball soup, and last night we were talking about what to have for Christmas dinner if it's just the four of us, and he suggested we just get Chinese takeout.
So if any of my Jewish friends need a 14 year old stand in this year, I got your guy
My favorite high school English teacher had a strict rule about not answering a question or making a request with just one word. When you did, he'd respond with an arbitrary word that made no sense, as a reminder.
I broke that rule the other night, requesting that my son get in the shower*. Without knowing any of that, he responded like this (below). I played along for a while, laughing at the lesson reminder 20-ahem years later.
(*He doesn't resist taking showers, he just needed the phone/youtube/tiktok/whatever trance broken with a text reminder.)
I arm wrestled my son last night, and not only did I lose, but I hurt my wrist.
My 14 year old wanted to watch the debate and I'm actually embarrassed at what he's seeing.
No good lesson here tonight, folks, except maybe how not to act.
