For homework over the long weekend, Scorch had to make a poster filled with pictures of his favorite animal.  Awesome! I was thinking cats or dogs or maybe even moose- they are a favorite ever since the Hubs went to Alaska a few years back.  Oh no- not my kid.  His pick?  Hyenas.

Seriously, kid? Hyenas?

No joke, he wants to makes a picture collage of hyenas.  Cute, cuddly hyenas.  When I asked him why, he told me how he liked them because they were both predators and scavengers. And that they lived in big family units and the mom’s take really good care of their babies.  Alright then- I decided I could get behind this idea.  But Scorch wasn’t done explaining yet.

“Plus- spotted hyena girls have something on them that looks like a pen.is and that is awesome! Because everyone should have a pen.is.”

Clearly, I need to start limiting the nature documentaries that boy watches.

I am the lucky mom to two kids. Scorch is my baseball obsessed 9 year old son and Bean is my crazy, loving 7 year old little girl. I'm happily married to the Hubs. We live in the middle of nowhere with two cats and one certifiably crazy dog.

  1. Ha! This gave me a great laugh to start my Friday morning.

    Curiously, my boy has no interest – that I can tell anyway – in his boy parts, but his sister on the other hand is quite curious about her parts AND his. Maybe time for separate baths???

    Good for you for not trying to sway him in another direction…though maybe you are avoiding pictures of the equipment in question. 🙂

    • Oh no..we didn’t highlight that particular attribute in any of the pictures we put on the poster. Not exactly how I want my kid to stand out a month into the school year. 😉
