I Know They Have Gerbils, but are They Really Throwing Ducks

So (S) comes home from school. She gets off the bus with a big smile on her face. She has definitely enjoyed school and thinks that she is "all that" getting to ride on the bus. She runs up to me and gives me a big hug. We are lucky in that the busses drop the students off right at their house so I am just at the end of the drive.

As we walk up the drive I ask the question that all parents ask, and all parents wonder if they will ever get a real answer.

"What did you do at school today?"

The response: "I don't remember"

Well I figure I am smarter than her and I can get the answer......Yeah right.....anyway, I knew she had phys ed that day so I figured that was a good place to start.

"Did you have gym today?"


"What did you do in Gym?"

"We threw ducks?"

I obviously was not sure I heard her properly so I said "you threw what?"


"What kind of ducks?" I asked

"Duck Ducks!!!"

"You threw them?"

She then turned her head towards me and with a look of disdain and responded with "Yes daddy, we threw ducks!"

So now you know as much as I do about how (S) spent her day that day at school. We have since had opportunity to talk with her classroom teacher and I asked if she knew what they did in gym class and she said she really didnt know particulars. She asked why. I told her that (S) said they were throwing ducks.

She laughed...........

  1. LOL sounds like the answers I get. Beth "dug in the dirt today and her teacher used a magic wand that had a big heart in the middle and the tooth fairy came but didn't get a tooth and turned their magic mud into chocolate pudding." Hmm
