A long time a galaxy far away?

Conversation with a 5 year old:

Boy: Today is my mom's anniversary.

Me: You mean your mom AND dad's anniversary?

Boy: yeah (then he rambled on about other topics)........

Me: So do you know when your parents got married?

Boy: Yeah, a long........long.......time ago!

The Sound of Music

A sweet little 2nd grade boy broke into song on the playground and it almost made me tear up - he had such a gentle (and on pitch I might add) falsetto voice and a stage presence to boot. This is what he sang -- knew ALL of the words!

My dad's a pilot...

Overheard in Kindergarten:

Boy1: See my paper airplane; I made it!

Boy 2: You made that just like my dad does; you must know my dad?

Boy 1: uhmm, not really.

Read me my (MIS) Fortune

So today, the kids were served fortune cookies with their hot lunches. Always makes for an interesting day as we get many excited requests from the littles to read their fortunes to them.

You know how you read something out loud and you don't really hear the words until they come out of your mouth, and by then it's a little too late? on........

5 year old (kindergarten boy) asked me to read his fortune

I'm in 'read it and move on to the next child' mode so I proceed to read out loud "You will have a Love Affair' (GASP) what did I just read out loud in front of 45 five year olds?

Another boys blurts out 'What's a Love Affair' to which I reply......

'I don't know but HE'S having one' - LOL
