Since I'm swamped...

One week ago today I was perusing J.Crew and Vineyard Vines websites, stationery goodness, and photography blogs. Basically, I was relishing in all picture perfect things.

Now, I'm crazy tired and swamped with snotty noses, journal writing, teaching them how to correctly write the number 18 (the figure 8 gets them every time...), and attempting to prevent temper tantrums. But I do love my job.

So readers, I'll most likely be leaving you with quotes from my hectic day...instead of beautiful, pleasing images to the eye or daily goodness from Southern Proper. sad day.

So here we go...

5 year old student with rat tail: Ms., you know about Super Mario Brothers?!
Me: Yes, I sure do, good 'ol Mario and Luigi...
Rat tail: oh...you must have played that game when you were a girrrrrrrrrrrrl...
(I just walked away thinking...what am I now?...)

And one more to complete y'all's day...

5 year old who insists he is the next Jay-Z: I am God.
5 year old who tries to be the teacher (but I love her): No, Jay-Z, you are not....there's only one God (pointing up to the sky)
Jay-Z: OH yeah? because my last name is King!

Really?...I can't make this stuff up...

Today my little ones told me...
"You can't have a Wii, you are an old lady"
"You have a squishy butt"
"I'm going to tell your mom you said shut up"

Don't you just love 'em?!?!

This makes me want to be a teacher myself. Too precious.
