It's all about the Benjamins

Tomorrow and Friday, Michael and Matthew have show and tell at school where they have to bring in pictures of U.S. Presidents. Should I be sad that the only thing I can find in our freakin' house that has a picture of a president is money???? I refuse to print something out from the Internet, just because it's kind of cheating. The point is to find something in your house.

However, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person sending their kids to school with money.

"This is Abraham Lincoln, honey. He's on the penny and we are told he was a very honest man. We honor this by remembering him on a coin that most of us won't even take the time to stop and pick up if we see it on the ground."

I never worried about things like this until I had kids!

Uhm, a friend of mine told me that they used to have a picture of Lenin in every apartment in her town, so when it was something similar to show and tell, all the kids showed up with the same Lenin picture.

I have just found out that they know more than I thought they knew. I handed Michael a quarter and told him it had our first President, George Washington. I had him repeat it a few times. A few minutes later, I asked him who his President was...his response? "George Bush"

Ok, you got me. Yes, your President is George Bush. I didn't ask the right question. It reminds me of how I asked Matthew once where he heard something he had said. His answer was 'In my ears'
