Daddy's are....


This morning I took my youngest DS to have his Kindergarten placement testing. He breezed through all the letters, numbers, fine motor skills, and gross motor skills easily. There was one blip though….in the section where the teacher asked DS to name opposites. One of the questions was:

“If Mommies are women then Daddies are……PIRATES!” …now, that explains a lot about my family.

I'd say, in your case...daddies are really cute! That is a great pic with the shirt matching the wisteria (which has been gorgeous this year). I think you should frame that one for your desk.

That's cute. I'd chalk it up to the days you spent in Charleston. What healthy boy wouldn't be dreaming of pirates after visiting there?

What a cute story, Belle-ah!
It's been awhile since I was here last...I think I missed so much!
I had forgotten that your son and one of my daughters were the same age. We home school, or she'd be going into Kindergarten next fall. (But I remember the placement test a couple years ago with my oldest...)
And even though I have just girls, they are both really into Peter Pan right now...ARRR! ;)
