Show and tell

4-20-2011 show and tell  (2)

The Kiddo had show and tell this week. It’s the first one his teacher has let the kids do since the start of the year. He was really excited and picked his GI Joe to take. He had to say three complete sentences about his ‘object’.. this is what he said:

1) Rico (the GI Joe’s name) is a soldier.

2) Rico is in the Army and my daddy is in the Navy.

3) Rico was my moms when she was little.

When I went to pick him up from class his teacher, Mrs. S, said to me “um the Kiddo said that his toy soldier was yours when you were little?” I said yes he was, though little would be early 20's. She said “Oh, that explains so much”. What!!?? I’m hoping it explains good things and not bad ones.

This weekend is a long one for him, he’s got a few days off from school for spring break. Tuesday will be his next day back in class. I hope he’s moving around a little better by then, he still can’t stand up without heal pain. I’ve been having him do some floor exercises (leg lifts, pushing against a wall, etc) but the walking is important too, little bits at a time. I think I will ask the Man to call the doctor today about the heal pain, I’d like to confirm that it’s normal to still have it (it’s been two weeks).

“Oh, that explains so much”
Hmmm. THAT'S an interesting comment.
Perhaps it means that she now thinks you got the military doll as an expression of your pride when you started dating the military guy who later married you.

(and here I thought you were pretty much "explained" by the weird family you grew up in; didn't know it had anything to do with GI Joe)

Perhaps she was a bit confused since when we were little GI Joe was not the size of Barbie but 3 inches tall. :) If the teacher remembered the earlier toy against the new toy, it would be a bit confusing :D. Specially since Chance said you had him since you were a kid. You are young, but I don't think you want to be 18 and have a 5 year old son. ^_^
