Ethan had to stay after school yesterday.
According to his third grade teacher, he had a rough day which translates into, "His was being a little shit."
This morning he showed me his "Behavior Correction Sheet."
Ethan: You have to sign it.
Me: Okay - let me read it first.
I read aloud: I was flinging... peee...nn. Pee..nni... Pee...niisses. I was flinging penises at Christian. What? You were flinging PENISES at him! ETHAN! What are you doing?
Zayd was standing next to me reading and starts laughing.
Zayd: Oh my God Ethan! How do you fling your penis at him!
Not to mention I was unaware Ethan had more than one.
Ethan: NO! No! I didn't do that! I was flinging my PENCILS at him! God!
Me: Well it says PENISES here!
Me: Holy cow Ethan. You can't spell penis when you want to spell it, and now you are spelling penis for everything else!
Ethan: I'm sorry! I didn't know how to spell pencil!
Me: So we spell PENIS instead?
Zayd: Well, we did teach him how to spell penis yesterday.
Damn, I say to myself. That's right.
