Mass Confusion

While we only live about 3 blocks from Madeline's school, we're still in the car for a few minutes as I drive her to the drop off location.  As we approached the drop off, Madeline excitedly told me that her class was going to learn about the Mass today.  Confused, because my child attends public school, I asked her if she was sure.  "Yeah, Mom, our teacher said we were going to learn about the Mass in science today," said an excited Madeline.  The excitement faded and she looked like she had been cheated when I told her that she was going to learn about mass, meaning the weight an object has, and not the Mass.

I suppose Madeline has been largely unaware of the separation of church and state.

  1. LOL! That I'm sure is a common mistake especially if you never heard of mass before. I can so see my kids saying something like that.
