I love teaching. Yes it's challenging, it's frustrating, and sometimes it makes me crazy and eat chocolate, but I love it.
One of the blessings I receive everyday comes from hearing children speak the truth.
On Friday, I did something I had never done before and it was fabulous. I was running a bit late so I quickly dried my hair and pulled it back into a ponytail...a very small, very amazing ponytail...it was a great day! How do I know it was fabulous? Ummm...the children said so!
Actually they said,
"Ooooo! I love your hair today!"
"Wow! What did you do?"
"Teacher! You made your hair a ponytail!!!"
Sometimes though, the truth is a little more....hilarious...
Truthful Child 1-"Mrs. WonderMom?"
Truthful Child 1-"Your butt is bigger than it was last year."
Me-"I know" (sigh) "I love pancakes."
Truthful Child 1-"Your butt is full of pancakes?"
Both of us start laughing!
Did I mention that I love teaching?
