October – A Fun Month – Report Card
It never ceases to amaze me how smart kids are these days. My 18 months old granddaughter surprises me everyday with her newly mastered skills and expressions. I’m still contemplating the very old question: “Who came first? The chicken or the egg?” , what’s your take on this?
Anyway, here is another cute story about how kids can outsmart, or should I say “confuse”, their parents.
A mother is driving her 7 year-old daughter to her friend’s house for a play date when the little girl asks:
“Mommy, how old are you?”
“Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,” the mother replies sweetly. “It’s not polite.”
“OK”, the little girl says, “How much do you weigh?”
“Now really,” the mother says, a bit less sweetly. “Those are personal questions and are really none of your business.”
Undaunted, the little girl asks, “Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?”
“That’s enough questions, young lady, honestly!” mom says as her daughter is getting out of the car.The exasperated mother drives away as the two friends begin to play.
“My Mom won’t tell me anything about her,” the little girl says to her friend.
“Well,” says the friend, “all you need to do is look at her drivers license. It’s like a report card, it has everything on it.”
Later that night the little girl says to her mother, “I know how old you are, you are 32.”
The mother is surprised and asks, “How did you find that out?”
“I also know that you weigh 140 pounds.” The mother is past surprised and shocked now.
“How in heaven’s name did you find that out?”
“And,” the little girl says triumphantly, “I know why you and daddy got a divorce.”
Now mom’s getting mad. She says, “Oh really?
And just why is that, young lady?”
“Because you got an F in sex.”
