This is why I can't wait to go back to work...
My little friend Janie has been inviting kids to her wedding for about a week now. I decided it was time to have a class discussion, as it was happening during our whole group lessons on the carpet.
Me: "Janie, exactly what are you doing?"
Janie: "I am inviting people to my wedding to Johnny."
Me: "But, I thought you were marrying Jack."
Jack: "I decided I didn’t want to get married."
Me: "Good thinking, Jack. Now, Janie, back to the wedding, you DO know that we are not supposed to get married in kindergarten, right?"
Janie: "Well, my mom and dad got married when they were 3 and 2 years old."
Me: "I don’t think that was when the REAL wedding took place. But, you go ahead and ask them about that tonight."
Janie: "Actually, I am marrying Johnny AND Jack."
Me: Well, unless you live in Utah or Texas, I don’t think you can legally do that. "
Johnny: "HEY- Jack and I are making a run for it!"
Cassie: "And, another thing, Janie was kissing the wall…"
Sally: "She was practicing."
Me: "Listen carefully boys and girls. ONE – there are to be no weddings in kindergarten. TWO – there is no kissing in kindergarten. THREE – well, I can’t remember, but I’m sure I’ll think of a number three shortly.
Okay, now what were we learning about?"
