Just wanted to share some things I heard at school…

  • Your toes are pretty. (Kindergarten)
  • What is an idiom? (Fifth grade)
  • It’s sooooo hot. (K, 2, 5, 6)
  • Miss Stiff is here! (K)
  • Oh no! You’re here Friday? It’s ruined! (6)
  • Swimsuits and girls in swimsuits. (When I asked what made them passionate about summer. That would be grade 5. Heaven help us all.)
  • Mom, I won’t get lost like on June 3rd. It was a Friday. (My very own second grader after walking away from his sister and not remembering which classroom mom was in every day when I drive to school so not technically in school.)
  • There’s mulch in my eye! (K)
  • Miss Stiff John is throwing mulch again. (K and don’t worry. All names are changed to protect the guilty.)
  • I have a black eye. (K. Three times this week.)
  • I think I miss my mom. (K)
  • I need to call my mom! (5- after forgetting his instrument.)
  • Is he adopted? (K, 1, 2, 5, 6, 9) that wasn’t a typo. A ninth grader who was also adopted from China asked this week.
  • Why don’t his parents want him? (2)
  • I’m so done! (Teacher)
  • Is this year over yet? (Teacher)
  • Can’t we just do recess all afternoon? (Aide – sadly she wasn’t kidding.)

These are just a few of the things said on an almost daily basis. I need to start taking notes.
