Teachers at FCA please don't ever even hint to Jalen that their might possibly be a snow day!! It took me quite awhile to convince him tonight that he DID have to do his homework---our conversation went something like this: Me: Jalen, go do your homework
Jalen:But, Mom we have a snow day tomorrow!
Me: No, Jalen you don't know that for sure!
Jalen: Yes, I do---it is 100% chance that it will snow!
Me: Yes, but how many times has that happened in the past--only to not have snow!
Jalen: But, Mom if we would happen to have school then I would have an excuse for not doing my homework!!!
Me:GO DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND DON'T YOU DARE SAY ANOTHER WORD ABOUT IT!!!!
Jalen: BUT........as he slumps his shoulders and dejectedly heads off to do his much dreaded homework!
(This is actually a very much shortened version of the conversation!--how is it that kids can be sooo smart and yet not understand something that is very simple????)
