There are days I am embarrassed I homeschool...

So after going over place values with my 2nd grader for the second year straight, we finish up her schoolwork for the day. She stays in the school room for a while coloring (counterfeiting), and comes out with a $2000 bill she has drawn. She waves it in the air and says "I have $2000!!! I'm a MILLIONAIRE!!!" Facepalm. Followed by "Because I robbed a bank!" Awesome.

Had to share after I read the post "do you ever question your parenting" LOL...yes, in fact, I do!

  • Oh my gosh that cracked me up. But she's young, she'll get it. At least she's not a teenager making that mistakes otherwise it would be even more hilarious!
