I like her because....out of the mouths of babes.

In a few days school will start for kids everywhere if they've not started already.
Anyway it got me to thinking about all the cute stories that I remember about my kids and the grand-kids and their school experiences.

I thought in honor of school I'd share an adorable story about my daughters middle son when he was younger.

Let me just set this story up by saying that he is very shy and did not go to take to school with ease in the beginning. To say she was worried about how he'd do in school was an understatement. Moms! We always have one we worry about.

Needless to say she arrives up at school and there he is sitting up in the front of the classroom with a big dimpled smile on his face. He seemed OK, and in fact he was actually more than OK. She did the meet and great with the teacher and then when they got home she spoke to him about his positive attitude of which she was happily surprised.
Now here's the story and I'm paraphrasing here....



"Emmanuel, Mommy was a little surprised to see you up in the front of the classroom."
"I like my seat" he replied.
"You like your teacher then?"
"Yes Mommy she reminds me of Grandma."
"Oh!" "And hows that?"
He then extended his hands near the front of his chest in a motion she didn't understand.
"You know Mommy." he said earnestly smiling at her.
"No I don't know, you have to tell me."
"I like her because she's like Grandma in the breasts!"

  3. Hey Jen, I don't know why but I haven't been here in a very long time... I think you had some computer problems a long while back and I forgot to check back... sorry. I noticed though on my followers that you have a new ID pic and decided to check it out... so glad I did... I will try my best to not drop off this time... I was just purusing some of your old posts and reminding myself why I liked to be here so much!

    1. Thanks for this comment, it's really very sweet. Truthfully my computer problems were followed by months of problems with my DSL. Rotten luck!
      Then you know how it is in the summer, life kinda takes over!
      My computer is great now, a new internet service is in place as of two days ago.
      And now I can get back to posting regularly.
      I'm glad you visited Zoe!

    1. Shame we can't keep that innocence isn't it? I've often wondered if it wares off over time or if it just goes up in smoke in a moment.

  8. What a cute saying from your grandson; I'm sure it brought a chuckle when you heard it the first time. I think the funniest thing my son said one time on the first day of school was this, after he had gone with me to take his sister to school, after he had seen yellow school buses and kids all around, he said "is today really the first day of school?"
