that's what he said wednesday :: mouse junk

4_wednesday

well, here it is. i know many of you have been waiting to see the reveal of the artwork story i shared on twitter and facebook last friday. for those of you who didn't here the story, i'll share it here with you:

every friday the little dude brings home a folder full of worksheets and artwork that he's worked on throughout the week. this past friday was no exception. as i glanced through the packet i came across the usual worksheets and artwork. as i examined one of the worksheets more closely, i noticed something that didn't seem quite right....

mouse junk

i secretly hoped that what i saw was just another piece of food that was lower in the mouse's belly. however, in my heart, i knew what it really was. the fact that it seemed scribbled over made it even more certain for me. i called the little dude in to look at the artwork with me. i started easy by asking what the artwork was about. he showed me all the different food that he had drawn in the mouse's belly....and that was it. i had to step it up and address the obvious. "so, this red piece down here....is that another piece of food?" the little dude looked up at me with a guilty look that confirmed my suspicions and quietly and shyly admitted, "no, that's his junk".

I have 4 boys, and this is something that my youngest would do, and say..with a grin. It's times like these that make childhood so funny. Hilarious!

Hilarious! Definitely something my teenage boy would say - maybe yours is ahead of the curve? ;-)
