Obnoxiousness Personified Sports Red Hair Ribbons

I invest a good deal of energy in teaching my kids to be polite and respectful.

Apparently I might just as well have spent all that time doing macrame, based on how well my children have internalized these teachings.

Today was the year-end performance for Iz's music class at school. During the introduction to one of the songs, the teacher pulled out a ukelele, and mentioned that the teeny guitars are from Hawaii.

Iz, loudly, and with neither a raised hand nor an "excuse me": "Actually, ukeleles aren't originally from Hawaii. They were brought there by the Portuguese."

Now, I am pleased that our girl knows something about her grandfather's culture. But it is too bad that my dad was changing the video tape when this happened, or he'd have had a nice shot of mortified me sinking through the floor.
