My Son's Answer to His Mother's Occupation

As a little boy, Chad was asked by his teacher, what his mother did for a living. Of course, he didn't actually know how to put into words, what his Mom was actually doing. At that time, I worked as a kitchen grill cook, at our local McDonald's Restaurant. Then, the light came on in Chad's little ole head and he replied, 'My mother is a 'hamburger helper!' His teacher almost burst into laughter and she couldn't wait to share this with me, at our next Parent/Teacher's conference:)

The answer is so cute. As a little boy i think the way he conceptualized the work of her mother is base on his innocent of the work.

We put our kids' statements on little notes for the parents. Today, our 3-year-old fire safety expert taught us "stop, drop, and roll," which is what you're supposed to do when you're on fire. My dear fiend Miriam interpreted it as "stop, rock and roll!" and repeated that phrase throughout the afternoon.

@TheHorse Little Miriam's got it right! Whenever that stress gets overwhelming, we should 'STOP, ROCK &ROLL!' For me this has never failed, it always puts the fire out!

@kobesbuddy It might taste good, but it is so not good for you. It is loaded with preservatives. I haven't had it since I lost my home a year ago. My son lives on Hamburger Helper and fast food. I'm healthier without it.

@kobesbuddy So Kharla the picture of him. That is a hard question for someone young to answer because there are kids that do not know what their parents do for a living. I would what the kids that have parents working for the govt said they were.
