Delirium has set in!

Reviewing for the upcoming religion quiz went well, tonight.

Me: "Tell me who persecuted the Jews but then converted, even became an apostle and a saint?"

My child: "I know his name starts with a 'P' and has four letters."

Me: "Okay, good. A little more?"

M c: "Is it Peru?"

Me: "Yes. Exactly. Saint Peru. He was from South America. Now can we try again?"

M c: "I don't know."

Me: "What is my mother's name?"

M c: "Paula?"

Me: "Yes. Now...if you needed a name with only 4 letters that sounds like Paula, you'd have..."

M c: "Aula?"

And we're done.

I had to laugh out loud on that one!!! Too funny :) I sure am glad we don't have religion tests here, my kids would fail each one! However, I even knew that one, without the help of Mom's name :) Maybe he just knows of some other saints and people we don't :)

This one was my daughter and she knew exactly what she was doing. She gets good grades but her favorite subject is "mess with Mom!" ;)
(I laughed at the Peru thing, so she just kept going!)

Oops, I figured it was your middle child. That's funny :)
