Most of the things the kids say make me laugh. We had our Valentine's Day celebration last Friday. I started the discussion, "Who do you love?" Most of the kids said, "my mom", "my dad" or "my dog" but, Flower Child had a different answer.
"Flower Child, who do you love?"
"Mrs. C, I love the Earth."
"Of course you do!"
Sometimes the things they say require a lesson on tolerance and patience.
"Mrs. C, he's not a very good reader" or "Mrs. C, she's not very smart."
Sometimes the things I hear are enough to make me want to cry.
"My mommy told me I was messy and it hurt my feelings."
But never have I had a child say something to me that made me want to throw up. Until...
"Mrs. C. I don't feel very good."
"I can tell you're a little sniffly today Flower Child."
"Yes, I am but I know how to swallow my snots."
"Maybe you should blow your nose."
"No! I suck them out backwards and when I feel them in my throat, down they go!
They say the darndest things, but to that I had no reply. Pass the barf bag!
