Mr. M turns 12 today!!
Me: You're 12 today! Do you feel any different?
Mr. M.: No, I'm still short.
Miss K.: You're growing shorter.
Mr. M.: Yeah. Basically. And it's not growing. It's shrinking! You can't GROW shorter.
Me: Matt! You are getting so wise in your old age. See? There is a difference!! Do you feel smarter?
Mr. M: (He shakes his head no). If I were smarter, I'd wish my birthday were before Wednesday cuz I took a test. But, since you don't get smarter, it doesn't matter. I'd have still gotten an 85%.
Me: Maybe the smart powers are in the birthday cake! You'll be smarter when you have your cake!
Mr. M: No, smart powers you get from going to school and paying attention in school!
Me: Who paid you to say that? The teachers? The principal?
Mr. M: (Grinning) Yeah.........
Me: Sucker! It's in the fudge sauce on the ice cream!
Mr. M: I don't like fudge sauce.
Me: Which is why you will never be smart OR GROW! Growth hormones are in fudge sauce.
Mr. M: I already AM smart!
Me: Oh! Well, happy birthday.
