At the pumpkin patch on her field trip
Yesterday, while explaining Vada's homework to her:
Me: So, you have to see if the words on the monster's teeth mean the same thing as any of the words in the columns below.
Vada: Okay. "Male" is on this tooth.
Me: Good. Now see if anything in the columns match the meaning of the word "male".
Vada: Um, "intelligent". No, males are definitely not intelligent.
Me (trying very hard to stifle my laughter through the smile that stretched across my face): No babe, that says "understand".
