Tonight, we were getting ready for bed and Emma was chattering, as usual.
"Hey Mom...Did you know that Henry Home Lincoln was our 1st President?"
"No, Emma - George Washington was our first president."
"Mom, but we learned at school that Henry Home Lincoln..." I interjected here..."You mean, Abraham Lincoln?"
"Yeah, Henry Home Lincoln...He was the first president. Then, they shot him in the back. Did you know that they shot him in the back, Mom?" *She said this in an outraged tone of voice.
"Yes, Emma...I know that they shot him in the back."
"Well, Mom...after they shot him in the back, did you know that they put him in a penny?"
History according to Emma...(6 years old and in kindergarten). I think I may need to have a talk with her teacher about the accuracy of the lessons that she is teaching. Either that, or I'd better go and have Emma's hearing tested...again!
