Two recent stories from friends of mine who teach grade one and two gave me a reason to be glad I work with the older ones*...
A few weeks after colouring her hair, a grade 1 student asked my friend, "Madame, is your hair real?" Bewildered, she answered, "Of course it's real! See?" and pulled on it to prove it. "Oooooh," said the student, "Then do you colour it because it's turning white?"
hehehehe!!! (L, you're still a hottie, don't worry!!)
And another friend a while back was getting her kindergarten class to do self portraits. She was sitting on the carpet with the kids and drawing a picture of herself as an example. When she was done, one of the kids pointed out, "But Madame, you forgot to draw all your wrinkles!"
Nothing like kids to help boost your self esteem. *grin*
* Aw, who am I kidding, those kids are CUTE!!!
