Kids Say The Damnedest Things

With the first day of school a little over a week away, I figured it might be a good idea to do some "reviewing" with the twins before they start kindergarten. We've done a few things over the summer to reinforce letter recognition and writing, but probably not near enough! So, they got out their little writing boards and we got to work. We got to letter "L" and after they wrote it, I asked them what sound it makes. They said the sound and then gave me a list of words that begin with "L". One of the words they said was "Lord". Immediately after they said it, they both, in unison, busted out singing, "The Lord loves a drinkin' man!" Now to some, that might seem offensive. But for those of you who live in Texas and know anything about Texas Country Music and/or Kevin Fowler, you know that is just funny right there. Would I recommend they use that song as an example in school? Absolutely not, and we discussed that. But as a mama who thinks my kids are pretty cute and am constantly entertained by the things they come up with, it was a perfectly acceptable example. And it made their daddy proud!

See ya later alligator!
