I help out in the Homework Club after school three days a week.
Yes, the euphemism makes me laugh, too.
Join our club! It rocks!
Trust me, I didn’t name it.
A few days ago, one of the 2nd graders raised his hand to ask a question. I headed over to his table to help him. He was sitting next to a couple of older boys from my daughter’s class.
As I got there, one of the older boys leaned over to the 2nd grader and said, “If you need help, you can ask us. We’re in 4th grade. We’ve mastered all that 2nd grade stuff.”
I bit my tongue to keep from laughing. I wasn’t needed here. That boy was in good hands. The hands of a master.
Instead, I ran for a piece of paper. So I could write down what the 4th grader said.
Of course. 🙂
