NEMO

Henry's preschool teacher had to verify something with me today. She reluctantly approached me and in a hushed voice said...

"Um, I have a question for you..."

I never like that sentence because it can mean so many things. It could be the start of various quandaries such as “Is Henry allowed to write on people’s faces at home?” or “Henry thinks he is a Cat and is refusing to talk in anything but a meow”...or maybe, “Have you ever applied for ‘super nanny’?” You just NEVER KNOW. But alas, it was just this...

"Henry keeps saying that he is drawing Nemo's big Butt, do you know what he means by this?"

I had to explain that in the movie, Nemo's classmates call the boat a butt...and that is when Nemo is captured...when he touches the 'Butt'.

(Not that the child has not been exposed to big butts, as it is a trait on both sides of his family, and he I am sure that at his current height, where they are always right in his view point, he is fully aware of them...I am just not sure that he has made the connection in his head between what the movie is saying and the large derrieres that block his sunlight on a regular basis.)

His teacher, who may have been internalizing the big butt thing, was somewhat relieved...although I still say somewhat confused....huh....

Should we start looking for a piece of land down by the river for Jack and Henry to park the van they are going to live in?....;)

I thought "butt" was the way Downeastahs say boat.
