My new little darlings started today. I love that they always say "You're the best teacher ever!" and I say "I'm going to tell your first grade teacher!" Their reactions crack me up.
I can already tell these kids are going to be funny. I just feel it.
Here is a quick example:
I grabbed a glass of iced tea at the end of lunch and brought it with me to recess. One little darling (I'm going to need some time before I can think of good nicknames) was curious about my drink.
Her: Ms. Buckler, what are you drinking?
Me: (holding up my clear cup that contained ICED TEA) Um...chocolate milk.
Her: Nuh uh! It's brown! It looks like beer.
Friend: Beer with ice would be gross!
Me: How do you know that beer with ice is gross?
Friend: Dunno (runs off)
Me: It's really tea.
Her: Yeah, I figured. Cause teachers shouldn't drink beer.
Me: You're right, Sweetie. Go play.
Here's a virtual toast to a great school year! I'm going to go have a glass of tea and relax. =)
