In the tiny part of the world where life is always good.



I was preparing a cute game for math today, but wanted to try it with someone first to see if they could do it. The kids were working in their journals, and I whispered to Francis who was conveniently at my table.

“Psst! Francis! Can you take a break from journal writing? I need you to be my guinea pig!”



She smiled and said “Sure!” She closed her journal and looked at me.



I handed her the dice, paper and markers and started to explain the game when she interrupted me.



“Wait, Mrs. Smythe,” she said dramatically, “I don’t really WANT to be a guinea pig. Can I just be a unicorn instead?”




(Pause while I laugh out loud again.)




“You bet.” I said.



 And so we played “Unicorns toss the dice and decorate muffins.”







And it was splendid.

Awesome! And thanks for posting that SNL skit. I hadn't seen it but living in PA, I'm hearing a LOT about the scandal.

-->I told my son to Shake a Leg not too long ago so he'd move faster into the house. He stopped and shook his leg.
What else could I do but laugh?

Today he turns five and you may like today's post about what he said about his Pre-K teacher.

Awww. That's exactly why I love working with young kids. It's so nice to be reminded that Unicorn-land exists. Happy Friday.

I am here catching up on your crazy life where you get all these things to write about for free!!!! I love to hear about your guinea pigs and unicorns.
I remember when my days of teaching would end and I would think "Darlin I am glad I don't have to take YOU home with me." and that's looking on the bright side! HOLLA!!!!
