Cassidy's 2nd grade class was given a cool assignment. Each student was asked to pick an insect or an animal. They were given the weekend to prepare a handwritten report which they were to present orally to the class.
Cassidy selected "Butterflies", so our weekend was centered around Butterfly books and building a "Diarama" sp?
AJ and I both decided to attend the 2 or 3 minute presentation.
Cassidy did a wonderful job. She had prepared well and pronounced new words such as, nourishment, thorax, mimicry, and antennae ,flawlessly, though seeing the word antennae made her say 'antler's' the first few reading attempts.
Cassidy repeatedly turned down my offers to dress up like a huge butterfly and fly into the classroom unannounced.
Do you think dad would actually embarass her like that.
She's also refused my offers to show up at "Show and Tell" as Robot Dad.
She could say "My dad is a robot and I could walk robotic around the classroom and bump into walls and stuff.
What's wrong with her?
Doesn't she appreciate me?
The next kids topic was "Spiders". He was very soft-spoken and spoke with a slight " lithp" due to some missing front teeth.
The students were allowed to ask questions or give comments.
After the students had finished their questions I raised my hand.
When he nervously pointed to me, I asked the all important question. A question for the ages:
" Ummm........Can Spiderman beat up Batman?"
Poor kid. He didn't know what hit him.
Five seconds of silence and then I smiled and laughed and then the kids turned around and looked at me and started giggling.
Cassidy looked at me very red faced and said, "My dad likes Batman".
Then a kid yelled very loudly "BATMAN WOULD TEAR HIM UP!!!!"
And a little child shall lead them........
