I'm half Polish, myself.



Overheard in kindergarten today as the teacher TRIED to lead a discussion about heritage. (She fell off her chair and onto the floor laughing...)


I’m half Ireland.


I’m half Spanish.


I’m half Picksburgh.


I think I’m half Florida. That’s where my grandparents live.


Yep. they're brilliant.



**It's a post from the "lost" files. I can't bear to part with them. I'm still working on one more Blogher post - but the family beckons....

It should be a great experience to live in many places. You would have good experience in having relationship with many people.

Brian Miller said...

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

I'm glad those "lost" files aren't really lost. They're too precious.

Tammy Howard said...

I'm half crocked, and it's only 11:52 am. It's 5:00 somewhere, though.

When Laura was younger, she once said that her grandfather lived in a condom (condo) in Nipples (Naples). He also had an "Italian accident" (accent).

Kids. :)

CatLadyLarew said...

Kindergarten... the greatest stage of childhood... really curious about everything, but not yet pains in the ass!

Lorraine said...

We used to say we were half Polish and half Dutch, so we were either Dolish or Putch!

Magic number at 12!!!! Wow!

Melissa B. said...

My daughter must be half-polished, too. She went to a polka festival last weekend!

Sprite's Keeper said...

I met some people at BlogHer who were probably half pickled by the end of the conference, nationality aside.
I'm a European mutt myself. Russian, German, Polish. And then people immediately assume I'm Spanish. Good times, good times.
NO HABLO ESPANOL!
Miss you!

Christy said...

This was just as funny the second time around!!!

Not The Rockefellers said...

Awwww...you're still glowing! Irish/Polish over here!

Not ready to go back to school....nooooo!!!

Peace - Rene

Maggie said...

I wish I taught kindergarten, they are just so adorable!

LPC said...

You want to go family, go family.

Mimi Lenox said...

I'm half-faced!

We want to hear about the conference. And where are the pictures, Missy? Hmmm??

Kris said...

HA! This made me smile!

Lynn said...

I liked that about kindergartners, but they are so damp! Dampness oozes out of every orifice of kinders!

Captain Dumbass said...

Half awake.

Ya, it's lame, but I'm too damned hot to be creative.

dizzblnd said...

lol @ Braja! I first read it as polish.. like Pledge.


I am all Florida!
Kids are so damn cute.

I don't remember this post. I am glad you posted it again.. it is a classic.

CaJoh said...

I always tell people I'm half Austrian, half Heinz 57 sauce. It's my Dad's side of the family which has a combination of many different things including 1/8th Polish (which makes me 1/16th Polish)

Sara said...

It's the combination of half a Picksburg and half a Florida that really worries me.

confused homemaker said...

sad to say by the time they make it to college their ability to know what ethnicity is doesn't get much better.

Awake In Rochester said...

I'm 1/4 everything. ;)

me too said...

so glad you hadn't parted with this one. to funny..

Pastor Sharon said...

I'm half Scottish, the other half Yorkie I guess! LOL!

only a movie said...

A few years ago, during the same sort of discussion one student said: "You can't be Italian, that's a sandwich."

The Nice One said...

I LOVE the discussions like these in school!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Today I'm half................way to a nervous breakdown.

Heather of the EO said...

I think I'm half Uff Da Yah You Betcha. Is that GOOD??? :)

I'm so glad to have met you at BlogHer. I was the overly quiet and zoned out one with Lee and Deb. So nice to meet you!

Joanie said...

I'm half disausted.

anita tedaldi said...

That's awesome - too bad we didn't meet in person at blogher maybe next year!
Cheers,
Anita

Maureen at IslandRoar said...

I'm full on Jersey,
at least, until I moved to Martha's Vineyard. Now I don't know what the hell I am.
Certainly not adorable like those little guys you quote all the time!

When discussing religions once in his classroom one of my husband's 4th graders asked about "rednecks" and if they are one of the major religions. Bwa hahahahaha!
