who knew....again

First of all yesterday was my brother Joel's birthday so Happy 18th Bday Wolly!

I know that I have had this title for a post before but you will notice that I put "again" at the end because lets face you learn A LOT in an elementary school.

My friend Drew who we you should be fairly familiar with by now has decided he likes the word sexy now.

I was told by student that he was saying that word and that he had been saying it earlier today as well so I told him that probably wasn't school appropriate.

Well turns out he used this word at home...with his mother who he evidentally referred to as a big fat sexy woman.

When she heard this she asked Drew what he thought the word sexy was his reply so she then asked what he meant by the word hot and he answered cool.

So long story short....the kindergarten definition of sexy is cool just so you know!

One last thing.....yestserday in Kindergarten one girls kissed another girl. The girl who was kissed (who is one of my favorite students) went up to the teacher and commented "she just kissed me and I am not very comfortable with that."

Enough said!

Elementary kids can make you feel bad...

So as some you know I work in the Kindergarten room at my school every afternoon. One of the students happens to be moving to a new school so all the kids were making a page to go in a book for her when she leaves, that include their favorite memories they had with her.

One of these students asked me if I would help draw a flower on her page, so of course I said sure. I asked her what type of flower she wanted and she said a rose. So I grab the red crayon and she grabs the green and draws the stem. I draw what I think is a pretty good rose (especially for using a crayon and also for a kindergartener!) Man was I wrong....SHE WAS NOT HAPPY!

She got really mad and told me that it didn't look like a rose! So of course I retaliate and say yes it does and she says no it doesn't and starts to get all pouty. I tell her one again that it does look like a rose and tell her that she should find a book with a rose in it and see how close it is. I was not happy either. She asked me again to help and informed her that I would let her work alone, because if she was going to ask for my help and then tell me it wasn't good, then she could work by herself and I walked away.

Surprisingly enough it actually hurt my feelings....a kindergartener hurt my feelings because she said something bad about my drawing. I wasn't even mad about another kindergartener who noticed my not always clear complexion, but man I was not having this!
