Hyenas

Standard

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.

About Heather

I adore my family, writing, books, cats, lazy mornings in bed, and chocolate. I'll never say no to breakfast for dinner, long talks with friends and lazy summer days at the pool with family. I've somehow morphed into a crazy sports mom, a skier and someone who lifts weights. My life is often crazy, always awesome and one I'm so happy to be living!

  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. 😉
