Pre-school Expectations

I'm going to be registering Drew for Pre-K next week!! So, it's only appropriate that I share this thought from Drew.

While I was pushing Drew on the swing in the backyard, Biscuit was bringing me his frisbee. He kept dropping it right in front of the moving swing! So, while I was trying to get Biscuit out of the way, Drew got impatient (go figure!!), and said "Mom, I need a push!"

The rest of the conversation went like this:

Mom: You know, Drew, you really have to work on pumping your legs to keep yourself going. When you go to school, your teacher is not going to be able to push everybody!

Drew: She will if she's an octopus!

Mom: (not able to hold back the laughter) Your teacher is not going to be an octopus!

Drew: Maaay - beeeeeee!!! (sing-songy)

Hmmm, Nemo's teacher was a sting ray after all, HA!

My father-in-law always says, "Be careful they are smarter than you!" I thought it was funny before I had kids, now I know how true it is! I bet you could use some of those octopus arms!
