My very literal kids are rule followers, and remain so to this day, often to their detriment. Like no food allowed, means my kid won’t enter the gym even with a bag of measly Skittles hidden in his sweatshirt.
Sign says, don’t walk, we’re not walking, despite no cars in sight.
No kids allowed kept me and rather attractive husband out of many a bars at many a ski lodges over the years.
Children’s menu, movie ticket prices — these kids sucked the life out of us, and the cash out of our wallets.
But never more than on homework assignments. (Disclaimer, not kid3. She’s all about minimum work/rules/restrictions.)
They follow all directions on the test and homework, and when they were in school, they often didn’t understand why they were penalized over the infamous show your work instruction.
“Show your work” was often asked of them in the classroom, as it should be, and I recall more than one meltdown complete with tears, when especially Kid1 or Kid2 frustrated to exhaustion freaked out. “How can I? It’s in here!” knocking their head and arguing how stupid the homework-test-project was.
Introducing this kid, the hero of Facebook this week. This kid was able to get it out from between their ears, and put it on the paper. Just. Like. That.
Bravo braniac. Bravo. Thanks for setting social media on fire, and giving us all a smile.
