It'll be fine.

My children had to have an interview for this special program they are in at school. They were pretty nervous about it, but I told them to just be themselves and it would be fine. I didn't sit in on the interview, but I overheard the following from the outer office:

Teacher: If you have trouble with your homework, who do you ask for help?
Boy Child: Our dad.
Girl Child: Yes. Our dad.
Boy Child: Sometimes our mom. But not for math. She sucks at math.

Teacher: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Boy Child: A zoologist.
Girl Child: An author. Like my mom.
Teacher: Your mom is an author?
Girl Child, slightly irritated: Yes. Her book is really famous. They sell it in England.

Teacher: Do your parents want you to go to college?
Boy and Girl Child together: YES!
Teacher: Do you know why?
Boy Child: So we don't have to live with them forever.

Wouldn't you want them in your program? I so would.

Oh my gravy. . . . I would take them into the program in a heartbeat. (Especially because they said you suck at math and are a famous author in England!)

They rock!!!

I really hope my kids grow up as cool as yours.

Bethany said...

Hell, I want them in my living room just so I can eavesdrop on conversations like these!

The conversations your children have are hilarious - they also show how clever they are and what a team they can be. :-)

Not only do I want them in my program, they need to come to a week of summer camp at my house. And by "summer camp" I mean "you and your awesome twins come hang with me and my awesome twins plus singleton and we all laugh for seven solid days."

I swear that could have been my boys in that interview! At parent teacher conferences last year Nathan told his teacher I couldn't help him with his (5th grade) math homework because I wasn't very good at it!
