Overheard at the Preschool Assessments

I took Brekken to his preschool assessment today and sat at the back of the room completing a paperwork while the teacher walked through the assessment with him. It was all I could do not to laugh out loud at some of the things I heard him say.


Teacher: Can you draw a picture of yourself?
Brekken: Okay, I will draw a picture of my sister.
Teacher: That would be great. Could you draw a picture of you and your sister together?
Brekken: Okay, I am going to draw a picture of my sister in a car!
Teacher: That will be a good picture. Can you draw yourself in the car, too?
Brekken: That's too hard! I'm just going to draw a picture of me.

Teacher: Can you draw a picture of something fun you did this summer?
Brekken: Yeah, I'm drawing scrambled eggs!
Teacher: Do you like to eat scrambled eggs?
Brekken: Actually, no. But sometimes yes. And here is a picture of a banana.
Teacher: Do you like bananas?
Brekken: Yes. They're very good mixed in scrambled eggs.
(Note: we do not actually put bananas in our scrambled eggs.)

Brekken: Hey! I want to slap you!
Teacher: Excuse me?
Brekken: You know, your hand? Like a high 5!

Teacher: Can you count for me and show me how high you can count?
Brekken: 1, 2, 3... a hundred! Banana!
                laughs at himself
                I crack me up! then proceeded to actually count

That is hilarious! What a funny kid. And after the crying i've endured at the hands of a 5 month old, i could use a little funny right now!
