Who Knew?...

(The above picture is what my sister gave me for Christmas that she ordered off the internet).

Who knew that Michaels (the craft store) had cute vinyl lettering to hang on the walls and I didn't have to order it off the internet. They have some cute sayings for the kitchen, home, bathroom, and girls/boys rooms. I bought one today for the bathroom (trying to decorate this still somewhat bachelor pad). And even this week I got an email inviting me to a party where people are selling these things. Well Michaels has them and I only paid $14.99. Whatcha think?

Smell my WHAT??????!!!!!

So only from the mouth of a first grader. Yep, a first grader. You aren't not going to believe this.

At the end of the day on Monday, one of my boys told another boy to.......are you ready????....."To smell my balls!" With a hand motion that really needs to be seen but he was basically pretending that he is holding them in his hands! Yep....when I took him outside the room to talk to him about this do you know what he said? He meant to say "smell my bouncy balls" because he "has a bouncy ball in his bookbag". Yeah, and to quote my hubby I should have said "I might've been born at night but it wasn't last night"!

Watch Out For Old Ladies

Funny story, might be one of those you had to be theres...however, here goes.
Today in the Target/Bed, Bath, and Beyond parking sister and I are coming out of BB&B and this woman (driving) and her husband are pulling into a handicapped parking space and there are two shopping carts at the end of the parking space. She proceeds to try to push them with her car up over the cement block at the end of the parking space and doesn't seem to have luck. I guess this woman was not concerned about messing up her car and just wanted to get this good space. Mind you there was another space just across the row that was handicapped. So I start laughing and thinking at first...did she see those carts? Does she need to be driving? SO she gives up and just parks. Car sticking out into the middle and 2 carts right in front of her car. My sister points out that she was going very slow so she was probably doing this on purpose. So if you see my 90-something old butt doing this one day, take my permit away!!!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Guess who came to my first grade classroom? Yep, a leprechaun while the kids were at recess. And he wrote ha ha ha on the board. And he left green glitter on everyone's desk. And he turned over most of the chairs in the room. And he threw all the bookbags on the floor. And he threw some books on the carpet. And some of the kids "saw" some little footprints on the floor. Mean little leprechaun. But we didn't find any gold!???!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

It's almost St. Patrick's Day. Make sure you wear green tomorrow. As the teacher, I have my green shirt ready to go...however, I am sure first thing in the a.m. I am going to have to have a "talk" about not pinching people...because believe me, in a first grade classroom, it will happen! And, don't drink too many green beers tomorrow. I might have one or two, after work of course!

National Peanut Month

Did you know that this month is National Peanut Month? For some history on it, click here.
As an elementary teacher, we did a worksheet on Friday where they colored some peanuts and had to add  three numbers together in one of our math stations. However, I can't do any real peanut stuff because I have a child in my room who is allergic to peanuts. Who knows why so many kids these days are allergic to peanuts?!!!???? I don't ever remember growing up with kids in my class who were allergic to peanuts. I would die if I was allergic. I love peanut butter. I like peanut butter cookies, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, frozen peanut butter pie...ummm.
Is everyone out there still eating peanut butter?? I am still a bit scared to eat the crackers. Don't want to get salmonella!
