Daddy Helps Mommy with Pre-K Homework

Well, here is an honest moment for all of you mothers out there.  I needed help with our son's Pre-K homework.  Turns out this Super-Mom doesn't know it all after all.
We were almost done with his homework.  The last task was really lots of fun.  It involved cutting and pasting items that rhymed.  Should've been easy as there were only 10 items.  Only one problem, I needed help with 4 out of the 10!  I quickly thought, 'I'm stumped.  I can't believe it.  This is hard.'  Looks like I'll fail if they ever come up with a show titled, "Are You Smarter than a PreK'r?"
The 4 items were pictures of a net, airplane, the number 10, and a chicken ... or so a thought.  Clearly, they don't rhyme.  At the same time, my husband was on an important conference call.  I thought, this will stump him, but I've just got to know the answer to this.  And at least I won't be the only one stumped. Plus, if he's on the phone, he'll never be able to figure it out & I won't look and feel so bad.

Here's the problem, my husband knew the answers!  When I asked him, "How do these rhyme with "net" and "10", he said "jet" and "hen" in a millisecond!  Wow!  I married a genius ... or wait ... is it that I'm now the "slow" one?  How did he do that, while he was busy on the phone?  All I know is, he looks a lot smarter to me.  And now I know I need help with Pre-K homework.  Very humbling moment indeed.  Kudos to all the single parents out there that figure it all out on their own!  You're amazing!  And Daddy, thanks for helping me with our son's homework, you're the best 🙂
