Before the holidays, Max's teacher wanted to do a little project so she requested 2 socks (one white and one colored) and some buttons.
Max knew they were making snowmen and was a little worried about the project.
"This better not be baby!"
He is always a little apprehensive about "art" (I use this term loosely) at his school because the projects always seem to be extremely basic and usually not age appropriate.
The kid's been requesting a little Monet for a year now.
The teacher slipped a disc in her back and missed the whole week before the holidays, so they didn't get to work on their snowmen.
Well, until last Friday.
Apparently, the kids were supposed to fashion the little snowman with a turtleneck sweater outta the colored sock they brought.
Max had other plans.
He was so proud of his little robber.
He told me, "I looked at this part of the sock and knew it looked like a ski mask, so that's where I got the idea."
And apparently all the kids thought it was the coolest and tried to trade with him.
And for some reason he really wanted to give it to her.
I think he has a crush, ever since she sent him a robot card.
But his father begged and pleaded about getting it because he thought it was the coolest and that the rest of the Chicago PD would think so too and Max gave in.
He told me, "I really think he needs a tiny gun but I knew better in school. Aren't you proud mom, I knew better than to make a gun at school!"
"Yes Max, super proud you didn't get expelled today...thanks!"
