Every now and then you just need to share your sweet silly stories!
One of my little kinderbabies said this to me: "I like your lips. I broke my lips. My lips are dead."
Haha! How... Sad...?
First grade care-giver role reversal: my shirt today had buttons down the back. Apparently one had come undone and one of my firsties said "Want me to fix your button for you?" I was a little startled that a 6-year-old noticed my button was undone (don't worry, I had a shirt underneath, too) so I said "Uuuh, sure.". She did my button very easily then patted my back where the button was. I said "Thank you, sweetheart." and she said "You're welcome!" and sat back down.
I had these firsties last year as kindergartners. I knew it would be cool to see them grow, but I'm used to fixing THEIR buttons. Patting THEIR backs. And now, for some, it's come full circle already.
Wow. I love these sweet little children and I feel like they are my own.
I have the best "job" ever.
It's not a job when you love what you do. It's a hobby you're paid for.
