What The???? (Yet Another Proud Parenting Moment From the Trenches)

Please behold what my 4-year old is thankful for:

Why, yes, that would be "Hulk, puzzles, witches, Iron Man, and ghosts" thankyouverymuch.

Apparently, we've taught him well absolutely NOTHING. I'm thinking perhaps he got his holidays mixed up and was still focusing on Halloween with the witches and ghosts?

Awww, who am I kidding? My little Couch Potato needs a big break from the television. Stat. (In our defense, he has never even seen Iron Man or Hulk! Errr....that I know of....)

Can't WAIT for his parent-teacher conference.

Oh, don't you fret. My 5 year old told his teacher he was thankful for candy. Yeah, that's all we feed our kid. =-\ I'm sure the teachers have seen it all. =-) ~Kellie

At least your 4-year-old didn't put "Chicken Selects" on there. Like, um, someone else's kid. But not mine. No way. Yep, someone else's kid.

6 yo daughter was thankful for Daddy. Then she told me sorry, she just forgot about me. 4 yo son hasn't seen Iron Man or Hulk and he's obsessed, too - and is now calling everyone Mr. Bommbastic - and I'll be honest, we're not big Shaggy fans in our house. Gotta love preschool friends!!

I am so glad my son is not the only preschool boy with an obsession with Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk (along with Spiderman, Superman, Power Ranges, and Transformers). Yes, this is from a child who watches NO television - NONE! and we wonder why the teachers don't believe us...

I was equally embarrassed when my son had a similar exercise and was asked for his favorite place and he said "Boston Market" (not favorite restaurant (that would be bad too), but favorite place in the whole world - not the zoo, the playground, his nana's house, or the Children's Museum. No, his favorite place in the whole world is Boston Market!

I had a similar feeling of superior parenting listening to my three-year-old recite various SpongeBob quotes.

One more day until I found out I didn't make the thankful list.

I'm sure you would have been next on the list if he'd had another space.

That's funny. Kids just say whatever is in their brain at the moment. Like last night. My husband asked my son, what does mommy say the most. He replied, "mean things... like 'stupid'" OH MY GAWD. I about crawled under the table. They heard me say stupid on the phone with my girlfriend a few weeks back, and now apparently... "I say mean things". GRRRREAT.

Teach him a delightful new phrase like, "Craptastic" over the holiday weekend and, if he can manage to come out with it at school before the P-T conference, the teacher might forget all about the eclectic things your kid is thankful for...

Our little man asked us tonight, "So what else can I watch on TV?" My husband asked me if we should maybe keep the TV off for a bit. I think he might have a point...

Updated: Six year old is thankful for Lego Batman Video Game.

What more could a mother ask for?
