Smiley Face

My wife Jennifer is a Montessori Pre-School teacher. How she has the patience to handle a classroom full of three and four-year-olds is beyond me. She often tells me funny stories about things the kids said or did and today I'm going to share one of them with y'all.

While learning to draw circles one little girl made a huge happy face that covered her entire sheet of paper. She turned to me wife and said, "Miss. Jennifer, is this a boy happy face or a girl happy face."

My wife responded with, "Do you want it to be a boy or a girl."
And of course she emphatically said , "A girl."
"Okay then make it a girl," answered my wife.

Seconds ticked by and yet the girl did not add to her drawing so Jennifer asked," What's wrong?"
To which the little girl said, "I don't have enough room to add in her boobs."

Arghh!! Hilarious! And being the husband of a 2nd and 3rd grade reading teacher, I get to hear stories like that too. Love it!

It's amazing the things that come out of the mouths of the young. :-)

Ha! Well I hope she showed her that eyelashes are the key if all you have to work with is a face. Boobs are always a good way to clear up any remaining confusion though.

Funny! When my youngest son was in Kindergarten, we went to Parent's Night at his school. The kids had made booklets called "My Family" and had them at their desks. We found our son's and were stunned to see that in crayon he had drawn my husband, myself, his brother, and himself...naked. I looked at my husband and said, "Fantastic. Now we get to go up and meet the teacher!"

Did she actually use the word "boobs?" For some reason, that just makes it even funnier to me.

Ha! Hilarious. I have a three year old and a four year old. A whole class full? She must have a lot more patience than me!

Kids are perhaps the greatest source of free entertainment there is, and the ages from 2-5 are priceless.

Love it, just love it.

You never know what your kids are going to say. It can be scary sending them out into the world. For the world, that is! :)

Bless her, when I was helping out at nursery years ago, I was on toilet duty, one little lad was sitting on the loo, and he said to me 'miss, me and my brothers and my dad all have a willy, but my mum is lucky, she had a hedgehog'!!!! I couldn't look the poor woman in the face after that!! (heres hoping that translates into USA English ok!!)
