First Graders

I want to say that I have not been very good about posting funny stories about my kiddos. So for this Terrific Thursday I will list a few.

-I was giving a students a little test (had to read a story and see how many words per minute and then had to answer 5 comprehension questions). This particular student is a very smart girl but her English is not the greatest. I don't believe that she was born in this country. Like for instance she will write a sentence and say "I see dog". Leaves out the articles. Well the story she read was about a teacher who has a big box and pulls out a toy animal, an animal who is gray and swims to the top to get air and the students guess that it is a dolphin...same scenerio and it is a penguin...well the question is..."What else do you think the teacher had in the box?" (The suggested answer says any other ocean animals....know what the child says? BUTTER. I said what? She says Butter? I said I can't really understand can you spell that for me. She says B. U.  T. T. E. R. I said butter? And she nods her head. WHAAATTTT? Maybe the whole language thing is messing her up...but butter? Because butter comes in a box? If anyone understands this story, PLEASSSSEEEEEE let me know!!

-Also my students have decided their new thing is to rub my shoulders. They want to "beat on my shoulders, or do the chainsaw, or massage my shoulders." I mean okay if you really want to....and then a little boy I think on Tuesday says..."Can I rub your feet?" Can I get this little boy to come home with me and teach my hubby a thing or two?

-Then a little girl in my room told me that her mom went out on Saturday night with her friends and on Sunday she did not feel good at all and had diarrhea. I was thinking a little too much drinkies...probably so! I am sure her mom would DIE if she knew her little one was telling me this!

Great Minds Think Alike???!!!

So who watches American Idol? I haven't watched it in weeks...however, tonight for like 15 minutes I did. And what is up with Adam and his Born to Be Wild!!!? Blehhhhhhh. I told my husbby that Adam is heinous and reminds me of someone on the Rocky Horror Picture Show. And after the song, do you know what Simon says...says he liked the singing but it reminded him of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. If you don't believe me, ask my hubby! I just don't get his weirdness. Am I wrong?? Is anyone a fan?

Sunday Sidenotes

1-Just letting everyone know that Spring Break is going to be awesome. I get to sleep late everyday! But I do have to go to the female doctor tomorrow afternoon. Pray for good news (maybe that can be a later post, won't get specific right now).

2-I plan on doing some spring cleaning too. I am going to de-clutter this house. And take the junk to the Goodwill. I hate to clean more than anything else so this is definitely going to be a task. What do they say if you haven't worn it in a year, throw it away? I don't even know where to begin...

3-I saw a HOTPINK car today at the gas station. HOT PINK. It had big tires and some fancy rims. And a guy was driving it. Too bad my sister was driving too fast past by and I couldn't take a picture of it.

4-I can't stand Hannah Montana because all of my kids at school wear those tacky t-shirts and I don't think she is a good role model and when they ask if that is her hair I tell 'em it is a blonde wig...however, that new slow song I can hear in the background on the ACM Awards (officially Miley, not Hannah) and I am kind of impressed. Speaking of country music, I get to go to a concert here in town on Tuesday nigh called Rock Fore Dough (it is Masters Week here in the A.U.G) and see Darius Rucker and the Zach Brown Band! WHOOO! I got my ticket tonight.

5-I have an old cedar chest that was my great grandmothers and we couldn't get it open. Even had a locksmith try to get it open (two places at that). Well this Friday I had to get some things from my grandmothers apartment (she passed away a few weeks ago) and I found a box of old keys and I took them. Guess what????? One of them opened my chest. I was sooooooo excited!!!!! And these grandmothers weren't related so there is no way it was the key that actually opened it. But I thought "hey, old key who knows!"

6-Have a Happy Monday tomorrow!

So today was a wild day at school. I had like 6 kids get in trouble at lunch. I had a child trip me in my classroom. The child also tripped another student and the veins in her neck looked like they were about to pop out she was SOOOO mad at me I guess. (I guess I am a bit strict on the rules, at times, but crazy outbursts deserve consequences.) Apparently she was yelling in the lunchroom and was out of control....ready for Spring Break! I know I am ready for Friday at 3:30!

Then a child said "Mrs. Neal has black and white hair!" He said "isn't that right?" I was like what do you mean? And he says "you have black hair at the top and white hair at the bottom". So I stressed that I have brown hair at the top and blonde hair at the bottom. Guess that means it is a good thing I have an appointment on Saturday to get my "hair did!"

Breakfast of Champions

Okay, so I might be the only person that thinks this is disgusting.

Yesterday morning I had to go to some boring training. And it started at 8:30. Not only was it boring, but it was freezing in this room, and when I left I had to pay for parking. WHAT??? Yeah out of my own money.

Well I had some cereal for breakfast before I left.

A woman sitting a few seats down, a rather large lady at that...(I have no room to talk...I would probably be considered "obese" according to the doctor charts)....
Proceeds to put a napkin out on the table, then dumps out two bags of Cheetos on to the napkin and a box of Milk Duds. WHAT?? She would have been better off eating doughnuts probably. Just the combination at 8:30 in the morning made me a bit nauseous. Am I the only one that finds this disgusting?
