Why we don't eat bark.


Boys and girls, we have to be very careful about germs when we are in school. It’s important to wash our hands, stay clean, and keep our fingers OUT of our mouths.



“Mrs. Smith, I had a germ once. I had a germ and it was in my THROAT! It kind of tasted like, well, like MULCH!”

The Good Cook said...

I guess that begs the question - how do you know what mulch tastes like my dear?

Art Linkletter was right, "Kids say the darnest things"

dizzblnd said...

I wonder if he knows what bugs tastes like also?

Scope said...

I'm sure he knows that Playdough has a slightly salty taste.

ummmm, or so I've heard.

Tortuga said...

LOL!!! Y'know, I love when kiddos say things that are clear outta left field. It just makes me grin!

mo.stoneskin said...

My baby would probably eat bark, but at the moment she has an appetite for stones. And it has to be said, Playdough is very tasty.

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

Mulch--it's better than Glow Light liquid, any day.

Lori said...

I'll bet he has an affinity for dog biscuits - a real connoisseur, that kiddo.

♥georgie♥ said...

LOL...yay one more thing I love about school being back in session your student/teacher conversations!

buffalodick said...

We were born omnivores.. and a certain amount of exposure to germs keeps our immune systems working better! You just gave me a great idea for a new post!

Mango Girl said...

I wonder if that child has been in my yard? All of our mulch keeps disappearing.

Brian Miller said...

we just mulched this weekend...this morning Logan said "that mulch sure doesn't smell polite."

The Mind of a Mom said...

Okay so I see tomorrow's lesson is not putting wood shavings in your mouth either! LoL

Kathy B! said...

Mmmm.... fiber.

Alix said...

And my only follow-up question would be... and we know what mulch tastes like because...?

Kris said...

Christy said...

Now that is funny! And of course I voted for you!!!

Sara said...

I mean, in all fairness, who hasn't eaten a little dirt. Right?

Just me?

phd in yogurtry said...

I know all about mulch in the throat. Comes the morning after one too many margaritas in the throat.

Comedy Goddess said...

Mulch is great with honey!

peewee said...

oooh. Guess his mom's not SUCH a great cook.

Frau said...

Too funny! So glad school is back I love this part of your blog.

blognut said...

So? Mulch is bad for me, then?

Crap! I brought it for lunch.

Steven Anthony said...

thats what I always say after a meal at my sisters house..taste like mulch!

SkylersDad said...

I bet he is the kid that eats all of your paste, am I right?

Sprite's Keeper said...

Well, how else would you describe mom's cooking?

darsden said...

*Akilah Sakai* said...

Mulch? Haaa!

Be cautious if that kid ever brings in brownies.

Captain Dumbass said...

Mmm, fibre.

Maggie May said...

I ate so much grass and dirt when I was a kid, I have grasshopper legs and chirp when I walk.

Suzy said...

I had mulch and eggs this morning.

Jeff D'Antonio said...

If only they would stay that cute and innocent. Wait 'til you hear what one of my (high school)students said and did today (post coming soon)...

Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

Excellent lesson on fingers in mouths. Could you please create a lesson plan revolving around keeping fingers out of noses. It is urgently needed for my three year old. And my husband.

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

That must have been one humongous germ!

Lynn said...

I've always wondered what germs taste like.

Not The Rockefellers said...

throat mulching sounds like an actual treatment to deter the widespread growth of germs...doesn't it?

Did any parent insist that their child sing the Happy Birthday song while washing hands?..and so the other kids gotta join in, of course...have you ever heard a bathroom full of kindergarteners singing the Happy Birthday song at the top of their lungs ( Cha-Cha-Cha version) at different rates?

Yeah, I have a noise headache...

Peace - Rene

KMcJoseph said...

Maybe he ate mulch...

Irish Chick Soup said...

Hello, flu season. Pica, anyone?

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Remember Euell Gibbons? LOL

Beth said...

Unfortunately, I've had kids eat mulch before. And grass. They were playing some sick little daring game.

I won when I told them about the dog who peed out there.

Jeve (aka John and Steve) said...

Wait. We don't eat bark?

Sue said...

Mmmmm, mulch!
So happy you are back in school with the hilarious kids in your class!

Anne said...

Ah, yes, right...no bark. What about boogers, can we eat our boogers? Yep I'm learning ....

Twenty-Something said...

i didn't have Mulch in my vocabulary until last summer... boys a genius!

the mama bird diaries said...

What kid knows the word mulch? Impressive.

Bethany said...

Hehe, I love it!

Secretia Teller said...

A mother sent her 5 year old boy to the bathroom with strict orders to wash his hands. The boy wandered into the ladies locker room by mistake, and there were 7 or 8 women in various stages of nakedness (finishing swimming lessons). Most of them screamed as they scrambled to cover themselves up, and the kid asked "What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"

LOL. You're definitely taking me on a roller coaster ride of emotions here. I am perusing, catching up, after all, I plan to keep coming back so I must know more right now. And it's so past my bedtime.

Well, let me quit here and say you seem like an amazing woman, full of strength and sass. I'm glad I came across your space here!!!
