Estelle - in a five-year-old body.


We have a little character this year named Emily. She is Sassy with a CAPITAL S.



Today I sensed something a little fishy and walked with her over to her cubby. I reached in to get the balled-up paper towel that was shoved inside and imagine my surprise when a pair of our kindergarten scissors fell out.


She looked at me and said matter-of factly, "Well. THAT'S disturbing."







I might gift wrap them for her for the end of the year. (She's money, people. M.O.N.E.Y.)

I give her five years before she makes my case list. Little felons start young these days

I love hearing little kids like Emily! They not only repeat what they hear at home, but they get the context and inflection exactly right. These kid just plain make me laugh!
She is the kind of kid who used to be called "precocious". (I haven't heard the term lately. Now, they are all called "gifted"! I think precocious says it better!

Looks like back pack searches are going to have to be done before the kids exit the classroom.

PS - make sure your purse is locked up in a desk drawer.

Not the crayons or glitter - but the scissors. Why yes, that is disturbing.

Gaston Studio said...

Disturbing for sure! Just curious, did you talk to her parents?

Seems you have a little Paris Hilton on your hands.

That kid is a piece of work. I'm impressed with how fast she thinks on her feet.

deborah said...

rounded tips or pointy? what?

Was she also running with the scissors?

Today, scissors.
Tomorrow, glue.
In 7 years, juvy.

Priceless!

CSY said...

I wonder if she's the mastermind or if Frank is...

Cora said...

Keep your eye on that one. She sounds like bloggy gold!

Wild Child said...

Ummm, that's my daughter. She would totally do that. She's getting sneakier now that she's 7.

A much better response than the classic, "How did that get there?" I love her creativity!
