Just a quickie

I just thought I’d share a Beth funny with you all. When Beth was in Primary School she had a stock standard answer to shut me up. Every day I’d pick her up and say “What did you do today Bethie” to which she’d reply “Painting.” I used to get excited, thinking of all the wonderful artwork I’d be getting home soon. Of course Beth is my oldest and the first to do all these exciting things at kinder and school. I’m sure I’m not the only mum who still loves the artwork from their kids but thinks “Where the hell am I going to put it all!?” Anyway, after a while I realised that she was just saying this so that I’d stop asking her questions.

Thanks to meticulous research with visuals such as High School Musical Beth must have an idea of what high school students do. I asked her what she had done on Monday and she answered “I disected a frog today.” For a split second I did half believe her but then I saw the smirk on her face as she reached for her ipad and realised that she’d ‘bazingaed’ me. (For those of you not in the know, the character of Sheldon on Big Bang Theory yells BAZINGA when he’s tricking somebody.) She said the same thing on Tuesday. Today when I picked her up I asked her what she’d done today. Before she could say anything I added “and you can’t say you disected a frog.” Quick as a wink she answered “I desected a toad.” Cheeky bugger!

    Very cute. I rember asking my son every day what he did when he came home from school. Every day he would say “I went for a ride on the bus” I had visions of all these autistic kids being driven round on a bus all day and the government was just pretending they were taking them to school! Now he is 12 and when I ask him he just shouts “NOTHING”!

    I so get that. Beth often tells me she watches movies and I think the same thing!
