I love having kids do homework!

Okay, so I've been a mom with kids in elementary school for just over two years now, and there has been some interesting moments along the way so far. Like the time a kid got suspended for hitting Miah over the head with a road cone. Or when Dink got suspended for bringing a pocket knife to show off to the other kindergardeners. And lets not forget when Miah's new den leader realized that his son was the one that stabbed Miah with a pencil their kindergarden year. Yes, a lot of interesting times along the way, and without a doubt more to come.

Now, Dink is at the point in his math education where he's doing a lot of drawing items in certain quantities so that he's mentally equating numbers with visual pictures. So, last night, as I was glancing over his homework, I see this....

While keeping a completely straight face (SERIOUSLY) I handed it back to him and told him to show Daddy his awesome carrots and then head on up to bed. He did and Eric and I both held it together until he went upstairs....then the appropriate level of immature parental-our-kid-is-going-to-be-the-penis-drawing-kid to his first grade teacher kind of way we fell on the floor laughing! Oh yes, there are good parts of being a parent!
