Chess Players for President

Jonathan (13 yrs)  "Instead of a presidential election, they should just have a chess match."
Momma: "Do you think winning at chess is a good indication of a good president?"
Jonathan: "Well, there would be a lot less wars."

Super Hero Day

This week is spirit week at Thomas and Elsie's school. Tomorrow is Super Hero Day. Elsie cannot think of anything she wants to wear, despite my suggestions.

"Momma, I only know of two super heroes and I cannot dress like them. The only two real super heroes I know are God and Jesus."

Gross Stuff

Yesterday David (age 10) brought home a form from school for me to sign about the S.H.A.R.E  (Sexuality, Health, and Responsiblity Education) Program at school.

"You have to sign this. I don't want to go to it." (David)

"Why not?" (Momma)

"Because Daddy already talked to me about all of that gross stuff and I don't want to talk about it at school." (David)
