I'm ashamed to report...

that no, I am not smarter than a 5th grader! I think I started missing the questions when they got to the 3rd grade Geography. Yeah, not my best subject!

Recently I had to sub for the 6th grade English/Grammar teacher at my son's school and I DID. NOT. KNOW. the answers to the questions these kids were asking about their worksheets! Hello?! They all loved me though and thought I was hilarious! Sometimes when they come to the office they say, "Hey, Miss doesn't know 6th grade grammar!"

Speaking of kiddos...

My friend Tracy, over at I Am By Grace, wrote a hilarious post about her son today and the letter "U". Go on over and check it out!

Also, hubby wrote about what his 2nd graders thought "exalted" meant. Check it out here...

And finally, one of my favorite bloggers, Antique Mommy, wrote a funny story involving her son and their most recent trip to the grocery store. Pirates need groceries too! Read it here...

I will be M.I.B. (missing in Blogville) for the weekend...heading to Atlanta to attend a funeral and spend the weekend with my mom...just us girls!

12 sweet friends had to say...:

That's funny. When Kate started school, she was asking me something I didn't know and she said, "Aunt Dianne, I thought you knew a lot of stuff!" My reply, "Well, obviously I don't!" It is amazing how much kids know today and how early they learn it! Rest assured, you are in good company because I am not smarter than a 5th grader either!

I enjoyed the stories on the other posts. Kids do say such cute things. When Lisa was in kindergarten she asked me if I knew what symmetry is. I took a moment to think, then said, "That's when both sides are exactly the same." She replied with great awe in her voice, "You went to kindergarten, didn't you?"

My 9 yr. old son and I watch the show each week, including tonight's episode. I usually fail on the math questions!
It was so good to see your comment at my blog. I love reading your clever posts! Have a safe trip.

Yep, kids can humble us. Love your hubby's post and I too love Antique Mommy so I had already read hers. Have a safe and wonderful trip with your Mom. We'll miss ya here. Come back with pics and stories.

LOL, Tracey, I'm not smarter than a 5th grader either, as I found out from watching just one show. I wouldn't last long on that one at all. Those 5th graders know it all!

Too funny! Especially the "U"

If they loved you -that is all that matters! I have been out for a while and just now trying to catch up on everyone! Hope you have a safe trip and I will check in with your other posts very soon!

I've watched that show a few times, and am ashamed at how little I do know about the topics the questions were about. Ah well. I probably know more about computers and how to set up a website than many fifth graders. So it all balances out in the end. I found you on the CWO Blogroll. I'll be back to visit again sometime. Ta for now dahling!
