The ever exciting at home reading program!

I am not mature, we have established that many many moons ago. I feel I have made this point time and again, so there is no need for me to rehash it. I should be, but I am not. Not entirely anyway. There are a lot of things I am very mature about, beyond my years. But there are still things that make my face turn bright red, and I giggle uncontrollably about. 

So you can imagine my surprise tonight when one of my children brought home this book to read with me.

I am going to assume this is a rather old publication? I have a few questions for this teacher (trying to ask these questions with a straight face). Really? Of all the books in all the world, THIS book was the best one to send home? We are in the 21st century, where is this an okay word nowadays? How do I read this without giggling? Was this a joke for me? I have older boys, and quite frankly (they have NEVER heard this word from me) but I am not naive enough to think they have not heard it from their friends.I might almost prefer the old Dick and Jane, "See Spot Run" over this one. 

When he was reading it to me he did not know what the word was (how to say it), so I said "cat". 
I had the willies thinking about my sweet little boy saying that word. Whatever-Don't judge! 

So to the teacher....GET NEW BOOKS!!!! Or at least white out that word and put kitty.


I am grateful for the constant laughs my children provide. 

I am grateful for warm sweaters and scarves. 

I am grateful there are only 14 more days until I leave on my trip to London!!!!
