The kids got new shoes yesterday. Brendan is now wearing a men's size 13. THIRTEEN, people. Sheesh.
Anyhow, Brett and I were talking about his new shoes while we were waiting for his bus this morning. His are black and green (his favorite color) and they have a velcro strap for fastening.
Brett: My new shoes will really help me get a better education.
(seriously? Where does this kid come up with this stuff?)
Me: How will shoes help you get a better education?
Brett: Well, I won't have to stop and retie them 2 minutes into the 4 minute run in gym class. And I won't have to retie them when I'm in reading group with K. And then I won't have to retie them during recess. So less retying means more learning.
(what do you say to that? Most kids think new shoes make you run faster. My kid thinks they'll make him smarter.)
Me: Cool Brett! Have a great day!
