Rakes had to tell his teacher all about his Mom for a Mothers Day present last week and he didn't let me down with his answers. Yes, we got the acting silly in how to make her smile and Mom is smart because she knows about race cars, but the 2 that really caught my attention?
He'd like to tell his Mom he wants a French Horn for starters; how does he even know what a French Horn is? He's five and I can truthfully say I've never heard him say the words "French Horn" a day in his life. I'm guessing SpongeBob said it the morning he took this quiz; it's the only explanation I can come up with.
Even more puzzling than the French Horn issue is, upon answering how pretty his Mom is, he responded with "sheep".
This is disturbing on about 17 different levels and I've really got no response.
Tomorrow night, he and I are having a really LONG talk about things.
Sox/Angels is just starting on my television.
