Learning's for Dummies

Davis is four and has already decided its not cool to learn things in school.  When I ask him what he learned in preschool he says things like, "Nothing. My teacher has a TV hidden in the cupboard and she just watches it all day while we do whatever we want"  or "Today my teacher brought a pillow pet from home and took a nap" or "Today we painted, but I already know how to paint so it isn't like I learned anything."

But yesterday when I asked him if he learned anything in school he very casually said, "I did learn something today.  Today I learned that I don't really like people."

This shouldn't have shocked me because that morning during an episode of Super Why after Wyatt said "and YOU-Super You, with the power to help!" Davis said, "The power to help? Who wants the power to HELP--people will just ask you to do stuff for them all the time!!"

So yeah . . . not really a people person.

This young lad will not be taken advantage of EVER! I love him.

We had a doctor tell us that The Kid being so stubborn was a good thing that would be extraordinarily beneficial to her....if we could point her in the right direction.

Good luck with that.

He'd make a good lawyer, Batman, or Unibomber. Either way...I see public speaking, or international relations in his future.....what with all his language skills.

Are you sure your kid and my kid didn't get switched at the hospital?

Davis doesn't dislike people, he's just not a cuddly person.
