First grade = heart therapy (aka Sometimes we get TOO much information...)

These are the top five things I had for breakfast…

8:35 a.m.  Jack told me that when he grows up he’s moving to Australia to become an Australian Soldier.  “It only costs FIFTY BUCKS to become a Australian citizen; that’s only 5 ten-dollar bills! I’ll probably get my mom to pay for it, cause my dad will probly be under the ground.  BUT, I have to tell the judge WHY I want to be an Australian citizen.  I’ll probly just tell him I’m sick of America.”

8:40 a.m. Steve came in this morning and announced to the class, “I wanted a 2 HOUR DELAY!  Man.  I’m really mad that we didn’t have a 2 hour delay!”
8:41 a.m. Poppy followed close behind and said quickly, “Personally, I prefer the complete delay.” 

8:55 a.m. Dante informed the class that Cupid was currently with Santa at the North Pole.  He’d be coming around on Friday to shoot us all up with love.

9:05 a.m. During our morning math work,  Kelly informed us that she has many kinds of blood. “I have swimming blood, dancing blood, and math blood!   But…I have my mom’s feet.”

9:15 a.m. During morning meeting telling sharing Poppy raised her hand. “My dad is having a hemorrhoid-ectomy today!  He’s bleeding from his butt….”

“STOP!” I shouted.  “Call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure your dad might not want us to know that.  Next.

Clock check?    9:20 a.m.  Five belly laughs in 40 minutes – that’s a record!

(Guys, I'm giving away a THOUSAND dollars here.  Since I can't KEEP IT FOR MYSELF, I'm thrilled one of you can have it....)

Wow, all that by 9:20!! Love Poppy; I'm with her on the "complete delay" heehee.
Ahhh, young children-you never know what's going to come out of their mouths. I shudder to think what my boys have told teachers!

Gigi said...

HAHAHAHAHA! Gotta love those little people!

And yeah, I'm with Elizabeth...God only knows what mine used to tell his teachers! *cringe*

You have such a joyous approach to your job. I wish all educators had your perspective. You REALLY should be teaching teachers!!!

Vodka Mom said...

I love you Sharon...

Lorraine said...

Oooh, Poppy, I could have used the complete delay the other morning myself. I so miss the classroom and the innocent humor - that would keep me going through the day.

Hope Poppy's dad is doing better. And, hope he doesn't read your blog... Did you see the new Kid President video dedicated to moms? Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7NKi41J-1A
