She’s so not babysitting her sister

We are eating dinner and our usual “What did you do at school today” conversation is taking place. We have come a long way since the days when this question would be answered with an “I don’t know” or an “I forget.” Today, for example, set an all-time high on the interesting factor.

Swee’pea explains that her writing assignment was to write about a time when she was scared. Now most kids in her class probably wrote about being afraid of the dark or the time when their brother scared them or even the way their dad looks first thing in the morning. All of these would have been fine topics for Swee’Pea to choose. However, Swee’Pea chose to go a different route…

“Today, I wrote a story about a King who wanted a son but his wives only gave him daughters so he chopped off the heads of all the girl babies until he finally got a son.”

Um, yeah. I expect we’ll be getting a call from her teacher in the very near future.


  1. Oh man. You’re in trouble with that one… :)

  3. Oh my heart! She is adorable and sharp and full of imagination! Any teacher might question the level of violence, but you’ve got to give her props for depth. Lol, thanks for sharing!

  6. Have you been reading British history to her at bedtime again? This is hilarious, including the title of this post!
