Henry's poetry

A few poems Henry wrote when he should have been doing something else during History class:

Roses are red
Bacon is also red
Poems are hard

Roses are blue
violets are red
Give me a minute
While I screw on my head

Roses are red
Carnations are pink
I am amazing
(Wink wink wink)

Did my child really say that?

Henry: Cameron likes Sophie!
Cameron: Wait, do you mean, like, like like, or just like?

The crazy thing was that I completely understood what he was trying to say!

Big people numbers

Abigail: Are there any numbers before 0 that only big people learn?

Abigail - A new authority in math

Henry has recently started taking an Algebra II class through Utah's Electronic High School. Last week he was puzzling over a problem...

Henry: A number x, is 3 more than another. If the other number is 2 less than twice x, find y. I don't think I can solve this problem. It doesn't work.

Abigail: All you have to do to solve that problem is find what x equals and why y equals. Read the instructions!

New Koolaid Flavor

Abigail to Henry about a new Koolaid flavor:
"Henry, you taste it first, 'cause you're the only person who eats things that aren't food!"

Abigail to Jared

Uncle Jared, stop jumping off the furniture!

Learning to tell jokes

Driving carpool to preschool is very entertaining. Abigail and her friend, Maren, have the most hilarious conversations! I find that they're very observant about what is going on in their families.

One day, Abigail wanted to tell Maren a joke, but she didn't have it quite planned out. The conversation went like this:

Abigail: Knock, knock!
Maren: Who's there?
Abigail: Moo.
Maren: Moo who?
Abigail: (thinking) Oh, I guess that would be a cow and an owl!
