R U Smarter than….

Posted: 04/30/2008 in Daily Happenings, Motherhood, My Peanut
So tonight I was getting my daughter ready for bed and as usual she was singing some made up song and songs from school. The topic turned into , “Mom, can you spell…?”. Usually I am ok with this until she comes up with some word like hippopotamus ! HA! What a joke. I use to be able to play it off in her younger days but not now. It is quite humbling to have your first , almost second, grader correct you. So I made my atempt to spell the word and she responded with, ” you got the , MUS , right.” Are you kidding ? I about died laughing. We battled for about 20minutes who was right and needless to say , AHEM…. She was! So , are you smarter than your….?

    That is so cute. I know my kids are going to be smarter than me. I can already see the wheels in their head turning to try and outsmart me 🙂
