My kids are constantly cracking me up. For instance, my 11 year old D wants a monocle because his eyesight is only bad in one eye. A monocle?!? I had to look that up in the dictionary to even find out what it is. Turns out, its a one piece eyeglass that you hold up to your eye, kind of like a pirate turned librarian.
OK, I get that its not practical for an 11 year old to have a monocle, but how AWESOME would it be to be sitting in class and pull one out to read Social Studies? That would be the coolest thing ever. I'm so glad that my kids are just like me. It really does make life a lot more interesting!
