Thank You, Baby Jesus, for Fourth Grade Teachers.

I sent Addie J’s teacher a message yesterday, to thank her for helping Addie with shades of meaning in their reading assignment.¬†Apparently fourth grade is the year you learn the difference between a strip MALL and a strip CLUB. (My child did not know the difference. Also, my child knew what a strip club was in the first place. Where’s my Mother of the Year trophy?)

So thank you to Susan and to all fourth grade teachers, who explain these differences to our 9-year-olds as though it’s not freaking hilarious, and then just go on with the lesson.
