Kids Say The Darndest Things
Since last weekend was Valentine's Day, and since 6th grade girls love romantic stuff, some of my students asked me what Mr. N was getting or planning for me for the day. I told them nothing, we were just going to Tela. One of my students replied, "but Miss, he's a bad boyfriend. A woman has to get roses on Valentine's Day." This started a conversation on Mr. N's and my relationship. Since I choose not discuss our relationship with the students, they sometimes come up with their own ideas. However, as I tried to stop the conversation from continuing, one sweet, helplessly romantic sixth grade girl asked me, "Miss, one question. He's so tall. Do you have to jump to kiss him?" Priceless.
