For the past couple of weeks, my kids have been doing research on planets in our solar system. So of course, this inevitably has led to much pressure on my immature, third-grade funny bone.
Because I'm man enough to admit it -- I still laugh every time I hear the word "Uranus."
So without any further ado, here are some of the quotes my kids have given me in the past couple of weeks:
"Mister Teacher, I have a question about Uranus..."
"Is it true that Uranus rolls on its side?"
"What color is Uranus?"
"I think I want to live on Uranus!"
"Did a spaceship ever land on Uranus?"
And my favorite just happened yesterday. I was having the kids make Mother's Day cards, and I suggested that they incorporate their planetary research -- thus the "you're out of this world!" remark.
So one of my little girls brought over a card that said on the cover, "Happy Mother's Day, I love you."
And on the inside, the very first line was, "I hope you like Uranus."
Truly, a holiday to remember...
