KID TALK






IN A CLASS OF 3 YEAR OLDS...



Nathan..."Mrs. Owens, I'm feeling all 'snuffy' today."


Mrs. O...."I understand, Nathan, I'm feeling 'snuffy' today, too. Why do you think you are feeling like that?"


Nathan..."I'm allergic."


Mrs. O..."Oh, really? What are you allergic to?"


Nathan..."Boxes. Boxes and whales."


Mrs. O..."Hmmmm. Well, have you been around any boxes or whales lately?"


Nathan..."No, just the dolphins."



*********************************************************************************


IN A CLASS OF 4 YEAR OLDS...



Mrs. Owens..."Boys and girls, if you could be an animal...which one would you like to be?


Samuel..........."A pig."


Mrs.O............."Why would you like to be a pig, my friend?"


Samuel..........."So, I could dance in the mud!"


**********************************************************************


And this 'heart-felt' expression of nature was brought in by a 5 YEAR OLD to her teacher, Mom found it in her bag of potatoes...she said there was another one, too!









****************************************************************************



LESSONS LEARNED TODAY:



1. BE HEALTH WISE! Know what you are allergic to...however strange it may be!



2. MAKE THE BEST OF A BAD SITUATION! If you find yourself 'stuck in the mud...DANCE!



3. EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! Little surprises that make us smile are hiding in the most mundane of places. JUST LOOK!

Allergic to whales is too cute! and what a surprising valentine... never would have thought to look in the bag of potatoes for one.

You post just tickled me... and I loved the lesson in the end. My hubby got aggravated (just a bit) with me today because I stepped in the mud - had my boots on, so I just felt like doing that! The snow is melting to yuck - so I thought I would step in the mud to make me laugh!
