First week back @ school and award for best comment already won.

My boy is in Yr6 now. They are the big kids in the schol and definitely looking it (Receptioners (Preps) are such teeny littlies). This morning over breakfast he was telling me how his new teacher had asked the class yesterday if they knew which was the bestselling book of all time

Apparently she received a few thoughtful and reasonable answers -Harry Potter, the English dictionary and such - before my son' bestie put up her hand and said
'Is it 50 Shades of Grey, Miss?'

I imagine the teacher was still having conniptions and fanning herself when the correct answer was eventually given.


  1. Innocent me had to google that book! *giggles*. BRILLIANT answer!

  2. OMG! I teach reading and would be floundered if one of my little students came up with that answer. Ya gotta love 'em!

  3. Hi there, and as they say, "From the mouths of babes!". She wasn't too far off, was she?!
    Thanks for being a part of Blogtoberfest, hosted by Cathy aka {tinniegirl} last year. Thought you might be interested to know that we're running it again in 2012. You can find all the info at:
    And we're kicking off this Monday! Would love to see you there.

  4. Oh, cripes. It's not like he's going to quell the commentary for the whole rest of the year. Hold on to your hat Missus.
