Here's what I've been hearing lately:
Josh: Mom, now take your time when you pack my lunch, because you don't want to forget my snack like you did yesterday.
Mom: Yes, Josh. **sigh**
(the errs of motherhood, so vividly remembered)
Carmen (a girl in my class): Could you open this for me? (it's a snack item)
Me: Oh, actually you can open that yourself, just use your scissors to cut it open.
Carmen: Oh, Ok. (now on her way back to her desk...she says this to her table mates...)
Wow, guys, she's really smart, she told me to use my scissors and it worked!
(ah... I think she might be one of my favorites this year...)
Ellie: Mom, I have to do my homework.
(This is a new found activity, most likely based on the fact that Josh also believes he has homework. Needless to say, I have many beautiful pictures drawn for me that were previously labeled "homework.")
