Kids Say the Sweetest Crap

Ok, so the title is for my former roomie and recently absent blogger friend Casey. She always posts funny stories from her class and titles them Kids Say Crazy Crap. Check out her blog if she ever returns, she's hysterical...and I miss her :( And yes, this is my third post today...Yes, I realize I started the day with nothing to say.

I blogged a few weeks ago about being asked to become a Celebrity Reader at a local prep school near my job. Today was my first day. I loved it! The kids were so stinkin' sweet! I received more compliments today that I think I have in my entire life! 

Want to boost your ego? Visit with a 5-year-old! I went and read to a Pre-K and Kinder class today. When I was there here are some of the things I heard:

"Mrs. C, you're shoes are beautiful!"

"Hey Mrs. I love your hair!"

"Yeah, well I like her eyes cause they are gold!"  (my eyes are poopy brown, not gold by the way!)

"Hey Mrs. your dress is really pretty. You look like you're ready for austin." (he meant autum! We just finished reading a book on seasons!) 

"Hey Mrs. your sunglasses look so big and cool like a movie star!"

"Hey Mrs. We really like you. can you come to our class every day?"

Ahhhh...Yep, my head is definitely inflated a bit. At least I know where to go next time I need my ego stroked!

Ive taught early education for almost 7 years and they say the craziest things! Sometimes they are nice like yours and other times not so nice...but the best part is they do it without trying to be mean, they are just totally honest. Last week I got, "Ms. G, you look all jiggly today." Its all good intentions...hopefully! :)

Too cute!!! I have a 5 & 6 year old...they ALWAYS say the sweetest things. That is unless my son is mad at me, then he knows how to hit me hard with:'re not pretty or your hair looks ugly ;) I just laugh!!!

Abbie said...

Totally know what you mean! No matter how crappy I'm feeling my kids always manage to cheer me up!

Sooo cute - and the main reason I LOVE kids that age! Great for the soul ;)
Thanks for checking out my blog.. wow.. I know that's really late.. sorry! It's just as flattering for me to know someone took the time to comment on my blog as it was to spend some time with those 5 year olds!

Definitely an ego boost. Especially when they say things like, 'Look at you, you're so pretty. You should have a boyfriend.' It's like a compliment and a slap in the face all rolled into one!
