Anyway, just was telling another friend about some funny stories from work when a thought came in - hey I could blog about this so here goes - some famous quips from my dear children at work
Last Tuesday we had Fasching (carnival party) where each one of us at school put on a costume. Mine was of a medieval queen of course with a crown. We were having some snacks sitting around the table when I annouced to the children
Me: Dear children, enjoy your snacks and give the queen (pointing to myself) a big round of applause thanking her for the snack you are having now
Children: (clapping their hands)
Meanwhile a little boy half dutch, half english sitting beside me was looking at me intently from head to toe and not clapping his hands, suddenly he leaned over and sheepishly whispered to my ears
Boy half dutch-half english: Are you really the queen?
Gosh I don't want to disappoint the boy, after all the Dutch and the English do love their queens
My boss turned 60 this year and a little girl came to her
Little Girl: Happy Birthday Ms. M
Boss : Thank you very much dear, that's sweet of you
Little Girl: How old are you today Ms. M
Boss: Well little girl I turned 60 today
Little Girl: (looking shocked and appalled) Oh my Ms. M you are sooooo old, YOU ARE going to die soon
Boss does not know if she will laugh or get scared
I was getting upset with a 2 year old boy because he was not listenting to me, and kept on hitting another boy
Me: Boy C stop it please. I don't want you hitting Boy B again
Boy C : walks away from me but looking upset , he goes to Boy B again
Me: Boy C, I'm watching you, don't upset me again
Boy C: Then stop watching me!
Teacher B: Hey Girl A, I have not seen your mother for a long time, how is she doing?
Girl A: Yes, my mom does not bring me to school anymore she says she does not like seeing you
Teacher B: Me, why?
Girl A: Well my mom said she hates your guts! Teacher B what does hate your guts mean?
Uh oh... happily that's not me
