From the mouth of a Kindergartener... — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

From the mouth of a Kindergartener...

I teach Kindergarten, and today I had a student ask me:

"Mrs. B____, do you have any kids?"

I told her no (although they know this, but at 5 sometimes they forget).

Then she said "Well, why not? I think you should. You should have a baby. Like tomorrow." Oh if only it were that easy sweet little one!

It was also the 100th day of Kindergarten and all I can say is I am so glad today is over! We (me and all 26 of my kdgrs) partied ALL day and I am exhuasted!

  • I feel like kids of all ages talk about it to their teachers.

    Last week alone I was asked by two students if I had kids, how long have I been married and if I plan to have kids and when.

    They're always all up in your business!

  • Haha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who is asked these personal questions by  students. I teach Gr.2. Smile

    I go by "Ms." since I still use my maiden name at work and my teaching partner (who has 2 daughters) goes by "Mrs.".  I over heard a student tell others that "Mrs." means you have babies and "Ms." means you don't yet.  Oh, if only it were THAT easy!  Wink

    That reminds of me of when our flower girl (3.5) said on the day of the wedding: "so are you going to have babies now?"

    I hope so L, I hope so.

    Although the same girl also thought for a minute that my dog Lexi came out of my belly... she had just gained a little sister so she knew babies came out of bellies and  she had heard people saying that I was Lexi's "mommy"... it was too cute.  Hopefully someday she'll get the concept of species! 

    haha SOO cute!
