Well, at least when it comes to my boys.
Well, this morning when I was dropping off Boy #3 at daycare, his teacher asked, “Did you go over the fire safety stuff we sent home last week?”
Thinking that, as usual, I forgot to help my kid do a project or fill out a form, I sighed quietly and said, “Nooooo, was I supposed to?”
His teacher said, “No, I was just wondering because we made a list of fire safety rules last Friday as a group. We only had 9, and so we all tried to think of one more so we could have ten. Boy #3 came up with #10.”
Then he pointed to the list posted on the wall and asked me to go read the last fire safety rule.
Guess what it said?
Yep, you guessed it.
10. In case of a fire, make sure to take your horse outside so it doesn’t panic and break everything.
Now this would all make a bit more sense if we actually had a horse, knew someone with a horse, or ever really spoke about horses…
I’m guessing this is a case of “Monkey See, Monkey Do.” But it’s still weird.
