I love the conversations kids have when they don't think an adult is listening.
I ESPECIALLY love these conversations they have when they don't think an adult is listening at Christmas time.
My little darlings were debating the opinion that the "gooder" you are the more presents you get from Santa. They also did an informal survey of who has actually gotten coal.
One worried little friend came up to me after lunch with a very concerned expression.
Student: Ms. Buckler, can you get off of Santa's naughty list the same year you get on it?
Me: I think my brother did it one year. He was pretty naughty.
Student: The same year? Or did he have to wait till the next year?
Me: Why? Are you worried?
Student: Yeah, kinda.
Me: I guess you'll just have to wait and see.
He would not tell me what he feels so guilty about.
