Guess what one of my little darlings left on the carpet at the end of the day today???



Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

It looked just like an acorn,

but it was really poo.







Yeah.

We found a piece of poo in our classroom last year! On the janitors day off... oh, yes.

You have my sympathies... xo

Classroom poo is the worst! I switched to those rubber alphabet mats instead of area carpets after my second year of teaching - MUCH easier to clean and disinfect!

So sorry! It's early in the year, so that student at least has time to redeem him/herself. :)

At least you didn't put it in a baggie, attach a note that said "I found this on my floor today" and send it home in his backpack. That actually happened in my hometown a while back. It made national news but interestingly enough it didn't make the local news. Hmmmm. That teacher still has her job.

Oh no! Yuck!

You MUST be channeling me today. With three stubborn (and obnoxiously difficult to house-train) Dachshunds, it's not unusual to find an 'acorn' once in a while.

A few weeks ago, while walking them, one of them poo'ed a kernel that looked like it was wrapped in silver foil. Ahhh! A Hershey's Kiss!

As it turned out, I soon realized the silver was one of the wrappers from the Hershey's Kisses I was eating the night before must have blown off from the coffee table from the ceiling fan. (run-on sentence, I know, Teach.)

Good times...never end.

Id feel bad for you if I did not pick up the recycled upset stomach contents of a Great Dane today. Three times. In the laundry room. And he walked through it.

Just Two Chicks said...

Ugh... I was going to tell you that we too made little acorn people.. the kids love it. Luckily I've not found poo people in the room.

Catch the Kids said...

Poo is all you and I seem to talk about... Seriously hope you didn't realise after you'd picked it up!

That is why I'm not a kindergarten teacher. Do you get hazard pay?

Didactic Pirate said...

Did the poo have a little smiley face on it?

I'm not saying that makes it ok. But, you know. Amusing.

Elaine said...

pee on the bathroom rug at home, poo on the floor at school . . . wow sucks to be you . . .

Cheryl said...

Are you shitting me?

Angie said...

I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE all the stories you write.
I'm not a school teacher, just someone who happened to come across your blog one day.
I really enjoy your blog. It's nice to be able to have a good laugh almost every day.
Thank you for that! :)

Mrs BC said...

I thought you where going to say 'These little acorn people" & I was all AWWW Cuute!!
Oh too funny, glad I'm not a teacher! Other kid's crap is the worst!

Aren't children just the BEST?!?!?!

I had poo in my class today!!! except it looked just like, well, diarrhea. And my kids are only 2 years old. This particular girl is "potty trained". But it's okay, she only pooed after we used her change of clothes because she had peed. So she went home in clothes from our dramatic play area....and a diaper!
