My son, (who incidently has just asked me if I am pregnant), has been named Home Economist of the month at school.

And we thought the weakness was only down the female line in the family.

Context: my mother taught Home Economics. Her sister taught Home Economics. I was known to teach some Home Economics. My cousin (mum's sister's daughter) also may have briefly taught Home Economics. My children are not allowed near either a chalk board or a baking bowl!
