It's the little things...

Want to make your teacher cry? Write THIS in your kindergarten journal.




My little babies are growing up.


Tara R. said...

Bskde! I love this! I know adults who still call it that.

The Pipster said...

Oh man, that is really touching. Thank you again for being a teacher!

Scope said...

"Bskde" is now the OFFICIAL spelling! Awesome!

CatLadyLarew said...

And this is why I love teaching the wee ones!

Irish Gumbo said...

Bskde and met balls are a classic dish!

*sniff* I might make me a bowl tonight.

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Awwwww. I love phonetic spelling.

Mrs. E said...

Love this!! (Well, with kindergartners. When they spell like this in HS--it isn't nearly so cute!) Adorable! Good job, teach!

Cheryl said...

I love it. Had a brother who used a P instead of a B.

Alix said...


I love Bskde too!!

And everyone knows bskde wouldn't be bskde without met balls.

just making my way said...

It really is the best when they start to write on their own, isn't it? The most creative spelling you have ever seen!

Lynn from For Love or Funny said...

It took me a while to figure out what bskde meant... totally cute!

Liss said...

That is priceless. I think day are Yume too!

Cora said...

Awwwwwww, cuuuuuuute!

Although, once they start doing that then you can't spell things around them anymore because they'll figure out what you're saying.

We just reached that point with the 6 year old I take care of. I spelled D-O-N-U-T the other day in a secret hush-hush conversation, and the 6 year old yelled from across the room, "I know you're talking about donuts!! So where are they?!"


Should have gone the fancy route and spelled it D-O-U-G-H-N-U-T. That would have shown him.

Suzy said...

Whenever I see that dotted line I am rocketed back to grammar school.

I have no idea what bskde means. I'm also too tired to sound it out and I want to kill my upstairs neighbors.

3 Men and a Lady said...

So sweet! Bskde is du bom! I'm fluent in little kid spelling. That was awesome, btw.

Vodka Logic said...

HOw cute, You really do get attached to the middle one.

The Boob Nazi said...

The "dey" makes me laugh.

Kathy's Klothesline said...

Very entertaining as always!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

You are a wonderful teacher...it shows in how your cheer your students on and realize that they are learning so much from you.

What a cute essay. So much in a few words.

Middle Aged Woman said...

When my daughter was about 18 months old, I was asking her if she wanted more BSKDE. Hubs got all huffy and said not to talk ababy talk to her. I said not to be ridiculous, she couldn't say "Spaghetti" at 18 mos! I looked at her and the little shit said, "Spuh-geddy!"

Sue said...

Yummy! I like pasgetti and meatballs too!!!!

only a movie said...

Love it. Great advertising for our noble profession. xo

Fragrant Liar said...

Bskde makes me tear up too.

Kellyansapansa said...

That is the cutest thing EVER!

Fiftiesmom said...

I needed this today! Maybe going back to the classroom and teaching first grade again won't be such a bad thing after all. Thanks for the smile this morning.

Malisa said...

Awwww! This post gave me chill bumps...and it has been a long time since I had chill bumps because Lurch is in the hospital AGAIN! I just want you to know that

I lve brbn an koke.

darkwitless said...


I promised Anymommy that I'd leave a comment at the blogers I love to read to let them know that their words count! Someone is reading and your words mean something to me...and then you use WORDS from those little people learning how to use written words for your post!

Even the universe agrees! Your words (written and spoken!) count and make a difference. Thanks!

Beth P. said...

bskde is one of my favorites as well! Adorable. You must be SO proud!

The Wifey said...

Adorable... sometimes I really wonder why on earth I'm going to school to teach high school instead of kindergarten? *sigh*

Grace's Mom said...

I could go for some bskde right about now.

MollyinMinn said...

That is just the sweetest thing I have seen all day!
