I told Bitchy I should not be wearing belts. (No one listens to me anymore...)


I went to school today wearing an adorable pair of jeans that had an equally adorable belt to go with it.  (Bitchy’s vain attempt to fashion me forward…)


We were preparing for what we knew would be a crazy day with kids stuffed with so much excitement that you can actually see it oozing from their pores. 


Sasha came in dragging her lunch, folder, snack, hat, mittens and anything else she could possibly hold onto.   She dropped them all in a heap and threw her arms around me for the morning hug.


“Hi, Sasha!” I said happily.



“Hey…” she said stepping back and pointing to my belt.    “Is that your seat belt?”





I looked at her.  “Yep!” I said.  “It's my seat belt.  I always wear it on the day before vacation, cause I know it’s going to be a bumpy ride!!”





Seat belt.  Honestly, whoever writes HER material is golden.

Sometimes the mouths of babes is endearing. Sometimes it's a target for my fist (*I kid, I kid).

I remember a kid asked me, repeatedly, when I was going to have a baby. I explained that I needed a husband first, but he still persisted. When I finally said "What makes you think I am going to have a baby?" the little angel (of death) replied "Because your stomach is fat like a pregnant lady's!".

And then I went to the gym. Or McDonald's. I don't remember.

Sasha is awesome! She sounds like the type of kid who will remember this exchange and grow up, watch All About Eve one day and turn to her kids and say, "I had this great kindergarten teacher, you know what she said to me one day..."
