I thought I would share this funny story with you. So our son is just a little sponge these days and school is fun for him. Every day he comes home eager to draw letters and shapes on his easel. Well this particular day he asks my husband to draw a rhombus! My husband looked like a deer in headlights and the conversation went a little something like this:
Son: “Daddy help me draw a trapezoid.”
Husband: “A what?”
Son: “A trapezoid, come on daddy”
My husband looks at me with a confused look and whispers, “you know how to draw that?” He turns around, looks at our son and with excitement he says…….
Husband: “Let’s draw a volcano!”
Son: “A volcano?”
Husband: “Yes, and we’ll make smoke come out of it”
Son: “Ok daddy”
Now, I’m really trying to pull myself together and not let him see me laughing but I was cracking up. Clearly it’s been while since we’ve been in school but hey we have a child now and even if we don’t know, we ask somebody!
Now, daddy thought he was off the hook but oh no! Our little scholar asked daddy a few days later to draw another shape, not a square or triangle but a RHOMBUS! Now this time, I wasn’t home but I did get a phone call from my hubby. Once I picked up all I heard was our son crying…..
Husband: “how do you draw a rhombus?”
Me: “What’s wrong? Why is he crying?”
Husband: “Because he wants me to draw this rhombus but I don’t remember that one either.”
Me: “Well I’m out, Google it!”
Now I know like we are smarter than a 3 year old but it is clear that we need to brush up on our skills!
Until Next Time,
The Rookie Wife!
