BOY's Special Person

JCK's children do not have homework per se. However, they do have family projects every trimester. It's a wonderful thing, but it kicks JCK's ass. And, the derriere is flat to begin with...

This year, BOY's project is to choose a "Special Person" who interests him. This person can be a friend, relative, artist, fire fighter, police person, athlete, president, business owner, co-worker, grandparent, etc. He is to interview and research that person, and the family will create together a poster board with details, photographs, images, drawings, and facts about this special person.

JCK: BOY, you need to decide who you would like to interview and do your project on.

BOY: On you, Mom. I want to do it on you.

JCK: Well, that is very sweet BOY, but I don't think you are supposed to do it on your mom. What about an E.M.T. or a firefighter? It can be anyone! A grandparent? You can even interview them on the phone. It doesn't have to be someone you know. It could be someone you don't know. I can help you.

BOY: I want to do it on you, Mom. I choose you.

JCK: Well...

BOY: I'm just going to say this for my project: She is a BLOGGER. That's what she does. She blogs .....I hope my friends don't think that is boring.


JCK is participating in NaBloPoMo, (30 posts in 30 days), for the month of November.

  1. Oh, how I love that BOY.

  2. He is a hoot! But, at least he didn't say, "She COOKS, or she CLEANS". (I get the feeling you are going to say "That's because I don't do those things!") ; )
