The boy brought home a book he made in school yesterday.
It simply read, “My mom does the dishes. I do the dishes. My dad sweeps.”
My heart raced as I read the last page, in his 5-year-old handwriting I SWORE it said, “My dad weeds.” But I read it as, “My dad does weed.” Instantly I was gearing up to race into the school and ask WHAT the HELL are THEY teaching my five-year old?! I know public schools are liberal, but I didn’t think they were THAT Liberal. Luckily he quickly informed me the word was “SWEEP”.
After my pulse slowed down a bit I asked, “What does daddy sweep?”
The boy quickly chirped, “Nothing, get it!? It’s funny! Like a joke!” Yes, I get it boy, very funny.
And then I asked, “When do you do the dishes?”
The boy gave me a confused eyebrow twitch, and quickly changed the subject to his favorite part in a Mario game.
Lucky for him he’s only five years old and I’m positive the teacher must have given them a list of words to choose from. Otherwise I would have made him re-do the project to read more like:
“My mom does everything and therefore sold me and my dad to the gypsies.”
