So most of my teacher friends are on spring break right now, our spring break isn’t until the last week of March. If you’ve ever been in a school near a break, you can almost feel it in the students. They’re very worked up, tired and honestly don’t know what they want.
Yesterday I walked past the girls bathroom and saw a kindergarten boy just sitting on the floor having a chat with the girls while they used the bathroom. I said “dude.. this is the girls bathroom, where are you supposed to be?” He just stared at me like I haven’t been his music teacher ALL YEAR LONG and said, “what are you doing here?”
So here is my edition of “Weird things my students say when we should really be on spring break already and they might be going crazy.”
When you honestly don’t have any reply
I’m in the middle of giving directions and a 2nd grade raises his hand and says –
“I have a crush on everyone in this room, but mainly I have a crush on myself.”
When you never have to worry about honesty
I’m literally in the middle of singing a song and I take a breath for the next verse and a first grader raises his hand and says.
“What’s wrong with your hair today? Did you brush it?”
By the way, the answer is no.. I have curly hair and I don’t brush it when it’s dry. So sue me.
Can you fit in my suitcase?
A first grader looks at me and says “think you could fit in my suitcase?”
I just stare at him.
He says “I wanna bring you to Florida for Spring Break, you can stay with us.”
Hmm.. I don’t know what to say, but I think it’s gonna be a haaard pass from Ms. Hayden.
I looked over at a first grader who almost had his entire hand in his mouth and said “alrighty, lets take our hand out of our mouth okay?”
He then looked at me and said “umm. I’m trying to suck off my wart.”
And then a few minutes later I heard “It’s almost gone!”
2nd grader – “Ms. Hayden, where does Mr. Hayden work?
Me – “There is no Mr. Hayden, I’m not married and if I got married my name wouldn’t be Hayden anymore.”
2nd Grader obviously very confused – “Mr. Hayden doesn’t want to marry you?”
Me – “There is no Mr. Hayden sweetie, it’s just me.. Ms. Hayden.”
2nd Grader – “Maybe you should have kids so you won’t be so lonely?”
Think I’ll make it out alive before spring break starts?
Pray for me.
