We are learning the U.S. Presidents for our homeschool history. Each day we go through them one by one, starting with Washington. I require the kids to know the President's name and at least one relevant fact about that President. Today Joe, the five year old, proudly informed me that William H. Harrison died in office. "How did he die?" I asked him. Without hesitation he answered, "Petunia."
I am quick to respond because of course, I speak "child speak." "Do you mean pneumonia?"
"Um, yeah. Pneumonia."
Petunia, pneumonia, whatever. Better watch those flowers.
