Here's a funny story from today. Get ready.
Actually, maybe it's funnier in person.
All I know is I am still giggling to myself about it.
SOOOOOO.... We're talking about community helpers in my 1st grade class and we're reading a book about it and discussing it.
Kids: "Miss Temple, you're a community helper!"
Me: "Yes I am! I'm a teacher so I help your GRAIN BRO!"
Pause. Most kids don't even notice my slip of the tongue. This is what I'm saying in my head: "Oh good grief. My life is a comic strip. They're going to be SUPER SMART with a teacher who will help their grain bro."
I start dying laughing at the irony. I'm also exhausted and I guess a little crazy - so laughing was a rarity this week.
Then the kids catch onto what I actually said versus what I MEANT to say and start dying laughing, too.
It's the little things. :)
Another funny story from last week...
Kindergartner: "I don't want to leave!!! If I was your daughter, I wouldn't have to leave you, I could go home with you. I don't want to leave you. I can't WAIT 'til Monday!!"
Oh, sweet babies. I love them all. Makes up for them makin' me so darn tired! I feel like an OOOOOOOOLD woman!
