A mom was playing "tooth fairy" and putting money under her little daughter's pillow when the child awoke and caught her in the act.
The mom froze, wondering how to explain to her tot that she was, in fact, the tooth fairy. But she was spared the trouble.
"You put that money back!" her daughter said indignantly. "The tooth fairy left that for me!"
Q: How does a homeschooler change a light bulb?
A: First, mom checks out three books at the library on electricity, then the kids make models of light bulbs, read a biography of Thomas Edison and do a skit based on his life. Next, everyone studies the history of lighting methods, wrapping up with dipping their own candles. Next, everyone takes a trip to the store where they compare types of light bulbs as well as prices and figure out how much change they'll get if they buy two bulbs for $1.99 and pay with a five-dollar bill. On the way home, a discussion develops over the history of money and also Abraham Lincoln, as his picture is on the five-dollar bill. Finally, after building a homemade ladder out of branches dragged from the woods, the light bulb is installed and there is light.
A mother and father were chatting with their eight-year-old son about his future. The youngster said he'd like to attend Cornell, as his parents and other members of the family had.
Pleased with his response, they pressed on. "What would you like to take when you attend college?" they asked the little boy.
After giving it some thought and glancing around the kitchen, he replied, "The refrigerator, if you can get along without it."
The flight home from a recent business trip was pretty empty. So the pilot made a simple request of the passengers.
"We have a little extra room tonight, folks," he said over the PA system. "So if you wouldn't mind, please take a window seat so the competition thinks the plane is full."
