Out of the Mouth of Babes!

Hey You....Did you enter my giveaway yet?!?!  It ends FRIDAY at midnight!  Click Here!

Working in the education field with the little guys has brought a huge sense of frustration at times...but at other times...it is just so funny. 

I have three favorite stories about funny things that kids have said:

Story 1- I was preparing to take my kids to Wild Oats for a field trip on healthy eating.  Fantastic field trip and it was FREE!  It was my first year teaching kindergarten and I was prepping the kids with what they would expect.  We started to have a long conversation.  Little S was sitting right in front.  As I continued to talk about the trip, he looked more and more confused.  Kids were asking questions and this just further confused Little S.   After I finished our 15 minute discussion about our trip to WILD OATS, Little S raises his hand and says "So are we gonna feed the goats or what?"  The poor little child thought we were going to see Wild Goats!!!

Story 2- I was working in a preschool setting.  One of my favorite little guys, G, was sitting next to me and talking.  He asked me who was picking him up that day.  I said "I think your mom is".  He said " No, Mommy only picks me up on friesday!"

Then today...I had this one.....

Story 3- Where I work, I work with a little guy named E.  E came in with his baseball hat on today.  He just started playing baseball and was very excited about his team.  I noticed the bird on the hat.  A few minutes later E took his hat off and put it under the table.  Here is the conversation that ensued:

E: " Guess what baseball team I am on?"

Me: "Um....the Yankees?"

E: "No the Yankees are professional...guess again"

Me: " Um...I don't know...give me a hint"

E: "It starts with O and its something I ate today"

Me: "Oreos?"

E: "Yea I play on the Oreos" as he took his hat from under the table and put it back on his head. 

Me: really laughing hard at this point "Honey, you play for the ORIOLES not the Oreos.  I know they sound a lot alike but the bird on your hat is an Oriole"

I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried!

Those stories are hilarious! Kids say the funniest stuff most of the time.
