Some days are good for a teacher’s self esteem. In fact, most days the kids have nothing but compliments. Some of my favorites to date are: “You smell like a princess.” and “Your hair is so curly. How did it get like that? I just can’t stop looking at it.” Yes, most days the kids adore me (I am their kindergarten teacher – they have nothing to compare me to. It is awesome). Today however, was not that day. 🙂
One child had lots of questions about my face. Here is our entertaining conversation:
Q: Why do you have a headband in your hair?
A: Because sparkly things make me feel happy.
Q: Why do you got make-up on?
A: To make my face look better.
Q: Why do you got glasses?
A: To help me see better.
Q: Why do you got those bumps on your face?
A: I don’t know.
*Pushing hard on a zit: Q: Does this hurt?”
A: Yes, very much. Please stop.
Q: Did you get bit by lots of mosquitoes?
A: Yes. That is what happened.
End of conversation and he went back to getting ready to go home.
Oh, children 🙂
