Hahaah those are great. The vomit one is my fave for sure.
I had to bite my tongue not to burst out laughing at that one. My favourite, though, was the see-through nighties one. Mainly because his mom was there when he said it, and her eyes got HUGE. Kids are hilarious.
i was a preschool teacher for a year & i heard some seriously crazy stories from kids. you did a great job with this! so funny.
Kids are hilarious. While I don't always miss the stress of classroom teaching, I really do miss laughing all day at work.
LOVE THIS! I definitely need to be more careful what I say around Cinderella. She remembers EVERYTHING!
She remembers AND she repeats! Ha! (Don't worry, though. Teachers really don't believe everything we hear.)
"Math makes mommy need wine."This one especially makes me laugh because both of my parents are math teachers.
That's a lot of math in one house!My favourite Christmas gift as a teacher was from a child who handed me a bottle of wine and said "Mommy says you probably need this." Ha!
Hilarious! Love the one about you getting the perfume mommy doesn't like!And yay! The subscription took this time so you're showing up in my inbox!
And the best part was, I actually did like the smell of the bath gel. I'm glad you're getting me by email now!
Hi! Please follow my blog. Thanx..http://mehmetaydiner.blogspot.com
This is my very first spam comment! I'm rather fond of you now Memado. Thank you.
Get the Wil Wheaton collating paper pic to post on HIS wall!
This story killed me.
I'm sorry that you're dead. Do they make giant hats for that?
OMG. I am emailing this post to the faculty at my school.
I just hope I never get in trouble for writing it! Ha!
And we, as parents, believe everything that is said about teachers. XX.
Oh god, I hope not. Bahaha! I could write a whole new post about things that kids have probably said about me. That's why I think that parents and teachers should unite and each promise to only believe half.
oh, these are a HOOT, stephanie!! and i love your plasticine children! i love "i didn't finish my homework because math needs mommy need wine." but they are all very funny.on a serious note, just the last couple weeks, there has been a story getting major press in our local paper: a little girl drew a picture of a gun, at school, and her teacher followed up with family & children's services, the police got involved and arrested the dad, searched the home...turned out to be a toy gun. there has been a ton of backlash and discussion about where you draw the line with what kids report at school, etc. i like your funny examples, much more!
That's such a tricky situation. As teachers, we can't decide whether or not we want to call child services...if we even have an inkling of a doubt, we're morally and legally obliged to call. I wouldn't have even thought to report a picture of a gun - ALL kids draw pictures of guns, especially boys - but maybe there was more to the story. What a bad situation for everyone involved.
Ah hahaha, brilliant as always. I prefer to believe everything children say--life would be so much more interesting if their reality was the real reality. (Well, except the being hit in the head business--I'm thinking more unicorns and the ability to fly...)
Or when a kid looks at you and says - in all seriousness - I have millions of dollars in my piggy bank. Ha!
Heh...these are hilarious! Lots of "too much information" going on!It looks like my second subscription took so I'm getting your Clay Baboon notifications...of course I failed when I tried to comment using my phone yesterday...so, one step at a time!
I'm glad that I can stalk your inbox now! ;)
Clay kids saying the darndest things = comedy gold! :DThanks for the laugh this morning!-Barb the French Bean
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! :)
My daughters' kindergarten teacher used to always say this to me, rather pointedly, I thought. ; ) I really don't want to know what my daughter was telling her. One time, a neighbor had given us a few slices of pie around holiday time, and we already had so much (junk)yummy stuff. I kept it for a few days but ended up throwing it away. The neighbor asked how we liked it, and just as I said, "It was great!" my daughter said, "Mommy threw it away." Awesome.
Ha! This comment made me laugh out loud. Awesome, indeed.
A friend of mine, once the teacher noticed the lupus marks on his torso, told his kindergarten teacher that his father beat him.He did not. Children are fun!Pearlp.s. I love your stuff and have added you to my blogroll.
Oh my. What a nightmare.
I know I said this before, but I seriously want a t-shirt that says "I didn't finish my homework because math makes Mommy drink." Complete with one of the cute little clay kids. I was actually telling one of my coworkers about it today.
Maybe I'll start my own fashion line. Ha!
Saw this again on the link from your meta-blogging post, and I am compelled to comment! I remember hearing through a bookseller that there had been teenage kids coming in asking for the book "Tequila Mockingbird." A *facepalm* moment if ever there was one.
