It's All About You, Isn't It

This morning I was explaining to my 5th graders that our English text hasn't been updated for over 11 years and therefore that means the selections chosen for them to read weren't exactly new, interesting, and up to date.

One of my boys starts grumbling about how he hates when that happens and it just ruins his day to have to read things that are so "super boring".

Of course my response was, "Yes of course Kiddo. There are men in suits sitting in their office at the publisher saying, 'Hmm...Kiddo Smith. What can we do to ruin his day?"

Kiddo thinks for a second then says, "Hmm. They must know my mom then."
