Ever Wondered How Old I Am?

According to my oldest daughter, pretty darn old...

Last week as dh and I were preparing dinner, Banana was lamenting how her History just wasn't as interesting as last year. She is in fourth grade this year and History has become more informational reading, less audio books to read and engage. I responded by reminding her that although it may not be as entertaining, it was still important to study hard.

I then, offhandedly, was telling dh that I don't remember really studying History until sixth grade. I liked her reading the books that helped History come alive, but am not sure that reading History text is all that beneficial at such a young age.

Banana reaches for the plates to set the table and says, "Of course you didn't have to study History, you were born before it!"

I was tempted to giver her the smallest piece of cake that night for dessert :)

For some reason the Seinfeld "Soup Nazi" episode comes to mind...."NO DESERT FOR YOU!"

That's classic.
