Is there anyone else out there who cannot stand helping their own kid with homework??? I try to, I swear I do, but she just wants to argue and whine and cry and we don't get very far. Now that my daughter is in third grade, I guess she is expected to keep up with current events. Her assignment tonight was to read and summarize a current event. So, we get on the computer, and I was looking at the top AOL headlines and realized that they were all completely inappropriate and on top of that, way above her comprehension level. Next I googled for sites that had current events appropriate for students and stumbled across www.dogonews.com. We were able to find an article that was quite interesting. Click here to view. Apparently, scientists have discovered that mosquitoes are drawn to stinky feet. Which explains why you get more mosquito bites on your legs. So, I guess what we learned tonight was:
1) Take a bath or the mosquitoes will carry you off in your sleep.
2) Unless my daughter would like her current event to be about some weird science study, she should leave me out of it.
