Let's face it, we never love our work 100% of the time. It's still a 4 letter word....
But when I start to have a bad day, or am feeling overwhelmed at work, I always seem to go back to a certain list of mine.
A list of kid sayings. You know, cause kids say the darnedest things. *True story*
So I've collected a bunch of sayings my students have said this year.
Here they are:
4 year old: Pluto died.
another 4 year old: pluto is a dwarf planet
3rd 4 year old: is pluto for real life?
teacher: what happens next in your story (to 4 year old).

4 year old boys: ewwwww
4 year old girl: it's not gross, its beautiful!

4 year old: cause thats what 4 year olds do
4 year old boy: i didn't want to laugh, Ms. Stapleton, my body made me do it. it wasn't my thinkin'
