So, I'm helping C.B. do his weaving project at my desk, while the rest of the little darlings were working on a literacy activity, and suddenly I overhear P.M. saying to someone at his table, "My mama gave me a barf cup to barf in, and it filled all the way up!" Lovely!
Two different times today P.M. said to me, "Mrs. L., you always say funny stuff!" Both times, it was immediately after I was, quite frankly, rude to one of the babies. The first time, we were in the hall hanging up the lions and lambs the babies made today for our March bulletin board. When I took the first group out into the hall, I had asked J.H. to bring me a chair so I could reach the wall over the board. I then sent the first group in, and had the second group come out. Suddenly, J.H. comes tearing out of the room, screaming, "SOMEBODY TOOK MY CHAIR!" at the top of his lungs. I was annoyed that he was screaming in the hallway, and in a completely inappropriate manner, I said, "You just brought it out to me, Fool!" Of course, by the time the whole sentence popped out of my mouth, I realized what I was about to say, so I was almost laughing, which made J.H. laugh, as well as the other babies who were out in the hall with me. P.M. was belly laughing, though, and that's the first time he said, "Mrs. L., you always say funny stuff!"
The second time I acted inappropriately today was later in the afternoon, when we were on the carpet practicing our sight words. When it was time to go back to our seats, I started to call the babies by tables to go and sit. I called Table 5, and J.H. decided to call the next table for me. So I said, "I didn't call another table, Big Mouth!" Now, truth be told, this is not the first time I've called J.H. Big Mouth, cuz quite frankly, he's got a big mouth!! The funniest thing is, every time it happens, he laughs and laughs, like I'm calling him some kind of pet name. Again, P.M., through his giggles, said, "Mrs. L., you always say funny stuff!!" Glad I can amuse you, P.!
