Taking Measurements

During "I" week at school Devin and his class made Inchworm Rulers. I had read on the activity board that they used their rulers to "measure" things around the classroom, so I was not at all surprised when Devin came home and began to measure things around the house with his new ruler.

The surprise came when I was standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes and Devin came up behind me and said, "I am going to measure your butt, Mommy. 8, 9, 10, 11. Wow! That's big!"

Umm...thanks? At least my big butt is good for measuring...

Dude, that is so not cool. His daddy needs to have a talk with him about lessons that are better not learned the hard way.

It should go something like this...
"Son, I understand you were trying to measure your mother's butt"

"Yes, I was"

"This is a very, very, very bad idea."


"Just trust me on this one."


"I'm just saying, it's just not a good idea"

"But why daddy?"

"Well, see, can"

"They can be what?"

"Look, it's just that...Oh, forget this. You'll figure it out on your own. But don't say I didn't warn you."
