Things my Son Has Learned During His First Month at Kindergarten

I like to think that he's learning about the sounds of the letters, etc., but these are the things I know for sure that he has picked up:

1. That he has "nuts" and that its fun to talking about kicking people's "nuts" (although he wasn't quite sure where they were located).

2. the "Bow-Chicka-Bow-Bow" tune (a la porno)

3. the Pledge of Allegiance

4. how to use the word "freakin'" as in "I'm 'freakin' hungry."

Shall we start talking about home schooling yet?

Here's a joke to tell your son:

What do you get when you mix a brown chicken and a brown cow?

Brown chicken brown cow

(to the tune of "Bow-Chicka-Bow-Bow"

This is awesome. Tee hee!

We're going through something similar over here; I about fell off the chair the first time I heard my son say "nuts."

penelope said...

Ok, so I had to make a list, too. It was really hard, though, because all I could hear in my brain was "Bow-Chicka-Bow-Bow." I'm going to have to go listen to something really loud (High School Musical?) to clear that out! :)

Yes, we've got the "dude" thing happening now. And comments like, "Man, that's awesome." And tonight, as I commented on penelope's blog, my son and his friend, were playing a game called "Evil Bastard." Do these kids have older siblings or do their parents talk like this?

penelope said...

(I just wrote something similar back to you after your post at my place.) "Evil Bastard" takes it to a whole new level. Sheesh. Maybe we should start a Parents Against Crazy Talk support group or something...

Good Enough Woman said...

Yes, we weren't able to say much at the time (or explain "bastard" and why it's inappropriate--which I haven't figured out how to do yet), but we did say that they couldn't say "bastard." So they quickly asked if they could say "Evil Tiger." Yes, Absolutely.

It took us a minute to even realized they were saying "bastard." Sigh.

penelope said...

Yes, how *does* one explain "bastard" to a kindergartener? You'll have to tell me once you figure it out...I do not envy you that but I'm sending you best wishes.

(Evil Tiger? Tee hee.)

Oh, and on that note, last week my oldest kept repeating the word "peacock" (just look at that! two bathroom words in one!) until I figured out what he was saying and tried to explain that it didn't sound very nice, even if he DID mean the bird (and I'm quite sure he didn't). But by then it was too late, as our youngest adopted it as a singsongy mantra (which he's never quite erased from his repertoire).
