Conversations from School

Some tidbits of conversation from school today...

8yo - "Do spelling words count as math?"
Me - "No, spelling words count as spelling."
8yo - "What if I count the syllables and letters in each word, would it count then?"

6yo - "I don't know why I have to do this. I never see you and Daddy doing fact families for fun!"
Me - "That's because we do it when you're asleep."

8yo - "Mom, Shae has stickers on her face!"
2yo - "No, Aid, it's makey-uppy."

6yo - "I love this book. It's like a story in my head!"

8yo - "Look, I can make this pencil disappear! Close your eyes!"
6yo - "Can you make it disappear if I keep my eyes open?"
8yo - "No, you have to close your eyes so I can hide it."
6yo - "I don't think that counts as making them disappear."

6yo - "I need help!"
Me - "I'm not telling you the answers. You can do the addition on your own."
6yo - "Well, if you're not going to tell me the answers, just forget it. I can do them on my own!"

Somedays, my friends, there is just not enough coffee in the world.
