Conversations with Children

There is one particular child on the playground that often comes looking for hugs and informs me of conversational facts:

"Teacher, This is called a sweatshirt. It sweats me." He told me that the other day. (It sure does.)

Also, I was told this:

"You smell like a popsicle!" Uh, I'm pretty sure that's a good thing?

Lastly, I was told this:

"Teacher! He pooped in his pants and I can smell it!" Said one little girl pointing to the little boy playing next to her who has frequent accidents. "Did you poop in your pants?" I asked him. He nodded shyly. (Oh brother.)

At Lunchtime: "My face is hungry." Says one little girl to the other.

Love it. Keep writing it down. My newly turned eight-year-old son has an imaginary "old-person list" of things I say. He writes it down in the air. I think I'm going to write them down for real on paper and start a record. Tonight it was when I said the word, "lame brained". (is that spelled right? lol!) It was in reference to a board game we were playing - ha, ha, ha!

I love it that you were told you smell like a popsicle. I think that is a good thing, nice and sweet! And kids love popsicles!
