The Project

Tonight at approximately 7pm I remembered Baby had a Book Report due in the morning. I called him home. I asked what he was supposed to do for the Book Report. He couldn't remember. I texted my friend. Her son couldn't remember even though he had already turned his in. I finally emailed the teacher, hoping in desperation she would check her email tonight. And she did! She informed us that he was supposed to make a milk or juice jug into an animal from a book he read this month. We racked our brains. He's been reading Hardy Boys. Not a whole lot of animals in those books. We thought some more. And then I saw the Calvin and Hobbes books on his bedroom floor.

"Why don't you make Hobbes!"

Since we didn't have any better ideas we went with it. Hopefully his teacher will be understanding.


Hopefully she'll be very very understanding.

Funny - I definitely don't recall any book reports like that when I was a kid! Hobbes is an awesome choice, though!

If anything she'll take Hobbes and just rub the soft fabric against her face. What a cute dog!
