Homework is lame.

A select few have our home phone number. The Bishop and the telemarketers. So we never answer the phone. I forgot this little house rule yesterday afternoon and sure enough..."Hi, we have an important message from your child's school.."

Um, really? That's weird. My kid doesn't go to school. But while I've got you on the phone...

What is with this I hear about kindergartners and homework? I've already been to kindergarten and I think homework is lame. Lame. lame. lame. If you still believe in Santa, pick your nose, and need help tying your shoe, you should be exempt from homework. And unless this is a phone call regarding a petition to band homework from kindergarten I'm really not interested, but thanks anyway.

Homework is lame at any age and I still fit two of the three categories above, so I should be exempt too. I'll let you guess which two.

Happy Monday in the morning! Back to school sorta sucks for some. Say that five times fast.

I have a bunch of your cousins in my home that totally agree with you. My friends 1st grader made the comment last week that, "He was made for fun, not school." Out of the mouth of babes!

AGREED! As a supervisor of MUCH homework...ranging from a Kindergartner to a 9th grade Freshman...I couldn't agree with you more!

Ehhem, as a teacher, I am forced to disagree. Unless you want your kid to graduate from HS waaaaay behind her peers, and not knowing enough to succeed in collage, I suggest you alter your attitude.

Speaking of homework...why aren't you going to knitting group anymore? I don't have your phone number, but I know where you blog! ;)

Man. If only I knew that doing my homework would help me get a collage degree...

You know what else is lame? You not blogging and posting pictures.

I must say that as a teacher I would assign extra homework to those that mispell COLLEGE.
