We are still fighting the redneck Spanish battle in our house. Kyle made a 21 on his first Spanish test! No joke! As in 21% out of 100%!!!!
This redneck taking boy needs major help!
Sunday afternoon I was back hanging out in the laundry room(ya know, just hanging out with all the dirty draws!) and I walked back through the living room and found Kyle just sitting on the couch with the most awful dazed look on his face. And you will never believe what he was watching! The Spanish speaking Soap channel!!! It was like Days of Our Lives, only with Spanish speaking people!!!!
And with that, this conversation then took place.
Me "Kyle what are you watching?"
Kyle " The Spanish speaking channel. The teacher said if we surround ourselves with it, we will learn it alot faster."
Me "oh, well what are they sayin?"
Kyle "I don't know, but he sounds very mad!"
(the man was yelling and fussing at a women and another man...you ladies have watched Soaps before...you know what I'm talking about....OH THE DRAMA!)
Later that night, I go in his room to get his phone and tell him it time for bed (yes, we take his phone away at 10pm on school nights and it's put on the charger in the kitchen) and he is laying on his bed with his radio next to him listening to the Spanish music channel!!!!
And then this conversation happens.
Me "oh, you still trying to surround your self with Spanish hoping it will soak in huh?"
Me "how that working out for ya so far?"
Kyle " I don't think it's working,"
Kyle " cause all I smell is Mexican food!"
At that point all I can do is laugh! That poor, poor boy! All he thinks about is food!
(and no, there was no Mexican food cooking in the house)
