What they’re teaching in the schools these days

You guys, I’m a GENIUS.

Henry’s home from his sixth day of kindergarten, and he was holding a pencil and paper and asked, “Mom, what’s that letter that’s kind of like S but it’s not S?”

I said I had no idea. “What did you want to write?”

“Wait, actually it is S!,” he says. A minute later he adds, “At school we’re doing that thing where the gingerbread man ran away and we’re trying to find him and we made a sign.” He shows me a paper that has the letters “OST” on it and asks me what it says.

“It says ‘OST,” I answer.

“Oh.” He looks a little disappointed.

“Did you want it to say ‘LOST?'” I ask.

“Yeah! That’s it! That’s what the sign said!”

  1. the MomB says:

    “…kind of like S but it’s not S,” ha ha ha, priceless.
    When I was in kindergarten, I wrote something at home (just the alphabet, I think) in which I had the S backwards. My mother tried to correct me, but I firmly insisted, “That’s how Mrs. Fox makes esses!” My mom was fond of reminding me of that incident.
    Of course it’s true, you are a genius.
