A glimpse into my classroom

(Look at me! 
I'm on a blog-writing roll!  
Not sure if I should be admitting this seeing as it's a Friday night and I'm writing blog posts. 
I'm a dork.)

Sometimes I honestly believe I could make a lot of money by writing a book of all the crazy/funny things I've heard kids say. 
This is my 10th year working with 2-6 year olds. 
They crack me up!

Pete: (walking into the classroom from the bathroom) Mrs. Bolton, my sleeve is all wet.
Me: Why is your sleeve wet?
Pete: Because I washed it out in the sink.
Me: Why did you do that?
Pete: Because I got a little poop on it while wiping. But that's okay because I washed it off in the sink.
Me: Um...let's get a new shirt for you. 

Then, I said something completely ridiculous.  
"That's okay. That happens sometimes."

WHAT?!
That happens sometimes??!!
No.
It doesn't. 
Sorry, Pete. 
I was just trying to make you feel better.

I LOVE the kiddos in my class! 
They're the sweetest, most fun, group of kids. 
They keep me on my toes and make me laugh all the time. 
They are eager to learn and love discovering new things. 
I often wonder what they'll be doing when they're 30.
I wish I could implant some sort of tracking device into them so I can find them later on in life. 
That sounds kind of creepy.
I didn't mean it in a creepy way.

Nope..nope that doesn't happen sometimes....not to most people, nope not at all....

but hey! what hypes up a day better than poop on a sleeve? Oh I know...maybe poop on an 18 year olds pants, and ALL over the bathroom and him stripping naked cause "let's clean up your pants" means...take off all your clothes...

yep that's a way. Nice, you made me laugh outloud!
