What's For Dinner?
Last night my nine-year-old Chandler came home with his school portfolio. He was supposed to share it. So I looked it over.
Homework, examples of his writing in journal form, and questionaires he'd answered were included in the packet. I read all of them with interest. You really don't know how your child's mind works as a parent because you tend to think you already know.
Plus -- you simply don't ask the right questions.
On one of the questionaires, Chandler was asked if he'd rather be:
Personally, I would have pointed out how limited the selection of the species were. But that's how I think.
Chandler went with it and gave them an answer. That's my boy: always one for answers.
He chose a snake.
Below the question and answer, the kids were supposed to state why they chose the animal they did.
Chandler's answer was simple and well-thought out. He replied, "I bet mice would taste better than ants and dead animals."
All things considered, I have to admit that he's probably right.
