This past week, I just kept cracking up at the innocent things kindergartener students kept saying. I would share my little story with different staff members, creating delight and laughter. So get ready to smile.
Thursday, I entered Mrs. B’s kindergarten classroom to work with two of her boys. Mrs. C, the assistant, had just walked in behind me. Being St. Patrick’s Day, Mrs. C had on a green sweater. I wore my bright green designed shirt. As Mark came towards me, his eyes grew big in amazement. I could tell he was thinking of something special to say. “Why, Mrs. G, you have on a green shirt like Mrs. C.” I chuckled to myself and smiled. He didn’t realize it was St. Patrick’s Day and green was everywhere.
On Friday, another kindergartener saw me and called, “Mrs. T, Mrs. T.” When I didn’t answer, he came over and said, “Mrs. T, I said ‘Hello’.” Mrs. T works in our school office.
“Hello, Brad. Remember, I’m Mrs. G, not Mrs. T,” I corrected. Brad looked at me from head to toe and proceeded to say, “Ohhhh, well you look like Mrs. T.” Brad paused for a second and added, “I guess you are Mrs. G when you are not working and Mrs. T when you are.” I stared back, chuckling. What did he think I did all day? Change disguises?
