Out of the mouth of babes

There are so many reasons I love my job working with kids. I found out yesterday that I made the top 2 on a sweet little 2nd grader's list of her favorite people in the whole world.

Just melts my heart and reminds me why I do what I do every day.

So many funny things happened this week, I had to share.

They tell is like it is:

1st grader: "Ms. Shannon, you wear those pants every day." [funny thing was, I hadn't worn them in about 3 weeks. Who knew they thought about your pants?]

A few minutes later...

Kindergartener: "Ms. Shannon, you're wearing boy clothes" [that day I was wearing some cargo pants and my husband's big puffy black coat because it was freezing outside. I guess technically, he was right. And it wasn't the most feminine of outfits. Again, who knew they even thought about your clothes??]

They're hysterical without even trying:
1st grade boy: [Took my large kick ball and returned with a much smaller ball.] "I shrunk your ball...and it's not a decot, it's NOT a decot."
Me: "A decot? What's a decot?"
1st grade boy: "You know, it's not really the thing?"
Me: "Oh, you mean a decoy?"
1st grade boy: "Yah, that's what I said, decoy."
[Starts walking away, but turns around], "But I didn't really shrink your ball. I was just kidding Ms Shannon. This was already small. Your ball is over there. Don't worry.
Me: Oh good, I was a little worried.

1st grade girl: "Ms Shannon, let me hug you."
[she leans in and hugs me, then steps back and asks], "Did you see my foot come up?"

So precious.
Who knows what today will bring?

Have a great weekend everyone! xx

  1. Kids can be so funny! Have a lovely weekend:)

  2. Sooooo cute!! I'm glad you are keeping track of these darling quotes. My Jr. High students were a more discriminating. "Mrs. Franchina, your socks don't match your pants..." *sigh*


I'd love to hear what you have to say! Thanks so much for your comments! ♥
