It is a very good thing that Jock is a spectacular athlete. Its also a very good thing that Jock is so cute. Because I have very little faith that the Arizona Public School System is going to do him much good.
Perhaps if they actually offered a Geography course anymore, the following conversation would have gone a bit differently:
Me: So your dad's cousin had her baby yesterday.
Jock: She had WHAT?! I didn't even know she was pregnant!
Me: Yeah. She and her husband....
Jock:.... (interrupting me)....She's married, too!?!
Me: Yes. And they live in Canada.
Jock: Sheesh. I bet they live in Amsterdam.
Me: .........Um, dude, Amsterdam is in Holland.
Jock: I know. That's in Canada.
*insert hysterical laughter from Coach at this point*
Me: Um, no. No its not.
I also think he would have benefited greatly from a class on Popular American Cultural History, with a sub-class specifically on significant musical contributions of the last 50 years. If he had been present for something like that, last night while playing ImaginIFF with the family, faced with the question of what Beatle his grandmother would be if she could--John, Paul, George, Ringo, Volkswagen or Dung--we might have avoided this question:
Jock: Mom, whats a Ringo beetle?
If this keeps up, we're in a lot of trouble here. He's amazingly cute when he blushes.
