On Minifob's recent math quiz, the problem presented two children named Allyson and Justin who had each solved a problem a different way (one being obviously wrong.) He was asked to explain which child was correct, and why. His answer:

Quote:
Allyson ACTUALLY used feet! I agree because she used an ACTUAL measurement unlike Justin McJusty, he isn't very clear on his measurements. You tell the exact measurement you want. You use a standard measurement: feet! You are good at measuring and know what is a universal measurement that everyone understands.
I told him name-calling wasn't a convincing argument. He disagreed, and pointed out the fact that he got partial credit.

The inch, 12, to his sister whose feet are too close to him: "MM, move your feet."

The MM: "They're MY feet."

At the kids' school they have this deeply-embedded curriculum on the traits of a good citizen/human. They spend part of every day talking about being tolerant, inquisitive, reflective, knowledgeable, caring, etc.


Minifobette spent a considerable amount of time today struggling with how a mirror could possibly be objectively self-aware and consider its own role in a situation (i.e., be reflective.)

The Millimeter's ACME game is strong. I saw these on the bathroom floor the other day, they are little wagons from her Playmobil castle.

The mm is at it again. I'm sure she is being sarcastic but there is a mix of her being proud of her ghastly toenails, and the hope that she's hit on a legit money making idea.

She's got a wicked dry sense of humor and has already bested me in intelligence. Still, she is a bit nutty.

Me: OMG You need to trim your toenails.
MM: *trims nails - calls me over to see* I think I can sell these on eBay.
