Kids and The Funny Things They Say

I have to admit I'm loving the instagram with other teachers. I LOVE the pics and brief little comments are perfect for me. I tend to overanalyze what I am trying to say. I think worry to much about how it sounds. Silly?! I know. That's just how I roll. That's why short and sweet is good for me. <--geez, maybe I'm a poet and didn't know it (hahaha.....okay, I'll stop)

Really, I'm just blogging to share the funny things that kids say. They seriously make me laugh out loud all the time. My sweet husband always asks me after I finish telling him a classroom story, did you write that down?? You would have a bestseller and you will want to read that when you retire. {sigh} No, I didn't write it down because I'm too busy keeping notes on so many other things but I KNOW I'm going to wish I had. Maybe this is the start of it......

I have a student who's mother is pregnant with her fourth child and due any day. I think she may be at that miserable stage in her pregnancy. She subs a lot at my school and I had their oldest child in class. This family is very special to me.

Me: Good morning, A! How's your momma doing? Is your new little sister here yet?

A: She's good. No, she hasn't had the baby yet but they are going to self born it tomorrow.

Me: Self born it?

A: Yes, the doctor will have to born it for her because she is taking too long.

Me: Oh, I see.

I love this!! It makes me laugh everytime I think about it.

This next sweet kid tells me stories ALL THE TIME. I'm not sure what is true and what is not true. He is always so serious.

D: Mrs. Kirby, what are the words in my voice?

Me {what in the world???}: Excuse me?

D: You know the words in my voice.

{actually, I have no idea - but this is where balloons and winner bells/alarms should go off}

Me: English??

D: Yea, that's it. I'm writing in my journal about when I lived in Mexico and my dad taught me to have English in my voice.

Me: Oh, I see.

Ya'll, this child has never been to Mexico and his mom informed me that she doesn't know what he is talking about. I love this kid!!

Okay, last one. The past few days we have been observing mealworms and doing different science investigations with them.

We observed the mealworms to see if they preferred black or white paper. The mealworms kept going to the black paper.
Me: Why do you think they might prefer the black paper?
{random student that blurted out without raising their hand}: Probably because their mom and dad are black.
Me: Oh, I see.
Ummm, okay what do I say. :)

I will leave you with this fun picture of my class working in the hallway...........

not because I'm fun and cool like that but because we had a puker first thing in the morning and it was a little stinky in there.
Sweet dreams!
