Funny, no?

I was just sitting with Matt and Will at the kitchen table while they complete their homework. As I was correcting Will's math assignment I came across this question:
60 seconds make one:
60 minutes make one:
24 hours make one:

Pretty straightforward stuff. Here was Will's answer:
60 seconds make one: minute
60 minutes make one: WHORE (misspelling hour)
24 hours make one: day

Perhaps it's my lack of adult conversation (Warren has been travelling a lot and is in Chicago right now), or my dirty mind. I don't know. I do know that it made me laugh out loud....... and it's not like a joke I can share with my 7 and 10 year olds. So, here I share my warped mind and confess that sometimes my children's homework makes me laugh. :-)

Very funny! We're also so excited to see that you're having a girl!!! Congrats to all the Goodworth's. Those boys won't know what hit them when she arrives, she'll definitely rule the roost!

Karen said...

That is sooo funny! I hope you kept it, that would have been even better!

I say take all of the comic relief you can get from the insanity that is life with little kids. Write it down so you can tell him some day in the far future.

Jessie said...

Yeah, that's pretty hilarious. I would have done the same thing. Did he ask you: "What's so funny, Mom, TELL ME?" over and over? That's what Cal does - it makes me laugh even harder.

I laughed out loud. I thought it was pretty hilarious. So if you have a dirty mind I'm right there with you. Did you leave it misspelled for his teacher to read? I would have been tempted.

That will be a TREASURE when he's older and you can share it with him...I bet he gets a HUGE kick out of himself! :)

Ali, your boys are adorable. And congrats on your girl!
