Today, the kids were working on some seatwork with some sight words, one of the words was “pretty”. This one little girl came up and asked me what the word was. I told her it was “pretty”. She said, “I’m going to write Mr. B is pretty.” I said, “I’m not pretty, I’m handsome.” So she said, “Then I will write that Mrs. B is pretty…” I said, “That’s one of the reasons I married her.” All the kids said, “EEwwww!!!!!!”
This whole idea of marriage, kissing, romance is just too gross for 5 year olds……
Except for the little boy and girl I caught under the table the other day…..
Which is of course why I like reading them books like “The Barking Mouse” so much….. the why, not being the kids under the table, but them thinking it’s gross.
