I Am Clearly Doing Something Wrong

So, the other day we were watching Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, and somehow Dylan started ranking our family from the smartest to the not-so-smartest. Here is how we fall, in Dylan's estimation:
Smartest: Dad
Next Smartest: Zack
3rd smartest: Dylan
Only slightly smarter than pond scum: Mom

The traitor

I am totally making him eat brussel sprouts this week.

Don't mess with Mom.

haha! Thats about where I rank too, and I don't think our ranking changes until they grow up and realize we really do know something.

And what's worse is when your kids get even older and understand the math you never did and you start to feel less than the pond scum. And they make sure you know it too by saying things like, "I don't know how you don't understand it. All it is is plugging numbers into formulas!" Whatever! I may not be very book smart, but I rank at the top with the common sense smart! And I agree with Tammi, one day they will find out just how smart we are! And no, I'm not always smarter than a 5th grader! And that's ok!

Thats hilarious! Almost as nice as when your kids ask you if theres still a baby in your tummy! LOL

It's just reverse pyschology -- he really thinks you're the smartest but wanted to make Matt feel extra special. Sounds good, huh!

That is hilarious. I love that he put Zack before you. haha. Your boys are so cute. What program do you use to make your page? I used to have a scrapbooking program but I deleted it to reformat my computer and now I can't find the cds!
