Out of the Mouths of Babes

Being the first week back to school last week, it was nice getting to know my new students without the added pressure of having to shove curriculum down their throat.

One conversation was particularly funny…

I spot David walking in the class line to recess with his eyes closed.

Miss Delight – David, why are your eyes shut?

David (with a smirk) – I’m trying to see if I can walk without looking.

Miss Delight – What happens if you run into something?

David – Then I can’t I guess.

Miss Delight – Good point, but do be careful.  I’m too busy to pick up pieces that fall off of you if you crash. 

David – (smirk turns to a smile)

So far so good.


  1. Yeah, don't be dumb, Miss Delight!

  2. I start with kid stomorrow...new school new kids...same old me! I hope I have a David :)

  3. I wonder what else he'll come up with this year!

  4. @Mark - I know right!?!

    @Blonde Duck - at least we have the first day over and done with.

    @M - Yes, the goofy ones can be fun...most of the tiem.

    @Jason - Time will tell. He spends all of our time on the carpet under the table. I feel like someone on a camping trip trying to get a squirrel to come to me...very carefully.

  5. Love it. Glad they are nice so far...hope Barry doesn't reorganize!!!

  6. He sounds like he's going to be a fun one! Lots of good stories!
