Armadillo Rodeo

Here's what happened at our house---

Nature Boy (a second-grader): I'm worried that I'm going to be in trouble.

Me: Why?

NB: I got sent to the principal two times.

Me: (bites tongue and doesn't yell) What did you do to get sent to the principal?

NB: Well, I did a flip into music. More like a somersault, but I landed at the right part of the circle. And I didn't hurt anybody or anything.

Me: OKaaay. What happened the second time?

NB: I said, "armadillo rodeo" too many times in library.

Me: (bits tongue and doesn't laugh) Armadillo rodeo, eh? Bet that made your teacher pretty annoyed.

NB: Yeah, but I couldn't help it. It's too fun to say. I said it over and over and over.

One Week Later --
Me: armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo.

Think they'll send me home from work? Because, really, I can't get "armadillo rodeo" out of my head.

Did it work? Because I'm trying that tomorrow.

Verde said...

It's catching...and I can't blame him -

Now I'm saying Montessori school, Montesorri schools....

Ruby said...

Songbird, it didn't work.
And Verde, this *is* a Montessori school! But I must say it's not as much with the program as the one my older children went to . . .

and after I thought about it a minute, LOL

I can hear the strains of two-step in it :)

and, I could understand one of my children talking about an armadillo rodeo, but how did your child end up with it?

Quotidian Grace said...

I'm with the Vicar--didn't know y'all had 'dillos in Blue State!

Snort! hee hee.

We have an opossum that is living in our attic.

Do they have possum rodeos?
