We spent ten minutes in hysterics over Lily’s homework assignment tonight…

They had me at Uranus, but the gas? And the large object knocking Uranus over? And, Lily showing me her Uranus’ movement? Is it just us, or have the teachers been sniffing a few too many glue sticks?

    Holy hell on a high stick, this is too freaking much. I would have doubled over, too. Here’s my question, did Lily ask why you were laughing? Did you have to explain yourselves?

    Clearly the teacher who wrote this assignment is stoned, not you, and I think that a Thank you note from you is in order, because this is flipping priceless… I just asked my science geek if something knocked over Uranus and he got all logical. damn wasted wit.

    As a former teacher, I can only assume that the teacher MUST have sent this home for all parents to have a chuckle. That is HYSTERICAL!!!

    Strangely, I do not remember this from school. But when the information is presented this way, it’s bound to stick with this generation :)

    Are not supposed to sniff the glue sticks? Not that I’m a teacher, but if should I be? If I sniff glue?

    I’m seriously questioning my life right now. HEY? Where’d my glue stick go?

    OMG. Outside my daughter’s classroom in the hallway this week are the pictures of the kids’ planets. My daughter chose Uranus. So she had listed on there some facts about Uranus.
    1. Uranus is more than 14 times larger than the earth.
    2. Uranus has an odd magnetic field
    etc etc Pretty sure I was the only immature parent who stood in the hallway and chuckled. I still can’t wait until she brings it home this week so I can take a picture of it and put it on my blog. LOL

    I guess I’m an unfit parent too because I can’t wait till my daughter brings home that picture and I can tell her “WOW! You sure do know a lot about Uranus!”


    2 weeks ago that class was on a field trip to our observatory. They don’t pronounce the word Uranus (your anus) like the rest of the world. So the guide kept saying it weird and one of the other moms, a friend of mine, said to me really loud “what planet is he talking about? That’s not a planet! Is that how you say that???”. I pulled her aside and told her “do you really think the guide is going to tell a class of 3rd graders “look for your anus up in the sky this week” ??”
    I’m assuming they pronounce it their weird way to keep the kids from getting all goofy.

    LMAO!! Teaching kids, sure, they may be sniffing one too many glue sticks. I wouldn’t blame them one bit.
