So, I’m doing my last grad school practicum for speech pathology, and I’m working in the schools. One of the 1st graders on my caseload has some goals regarding thought organization, describing with details, etc… when generating ideas pre-writing, then write at least 3 sentences using the ideas he generated.
He is the sweetest kid ever, & is really into WWE Wrestling.. he went to a show about an hour away a couple months ago, so I used that as our writing topic during our session. He was telling me all the wrestlers he saw there, and called 1 of them “Dowio”.. The kid pronounces his r’s as w’s, so I said “Dorio?” and he said no, and tried to say it again. Then he told me,
“I can’t really say his name because I can’t make my tongue go up & down to make it sound fancy.”
I about died.. it was too cute/funny. I looked up a roster & found out he was talking about a guy named Del Rio, and since it’s a Hispanic name, they probably roll the “r” when they pronounce “Rio” and the rolled “r” was why he “couldn’t make his tongue go up & down to make it sound fancy”. Just thought I’d share! 🙂

awww, thats too precious! I’m a pre-school teacher to a bunch of 3 year olds, so I could write a book of all the things I’ve heard. Of course, today being Valentine’s Day, it was pretty entertaining 🙂 Gotta love it! Sometimes, it makes me want kids sooo bad and at other times, its the best birth control out there! I love them, but 15 three year olds at once is a handful!

When my little brother was still learning how to talk, he called breasts, “Cheddars.” We have no idea where he came up with that, but it was hilarious, and we still use it as code. He also called lemonade, “lemonlade,” which I still say. 🙂

I work at a daycare with kids under 3 and then their is the bosses son who is going to turn 5 next week. I walked into into the other room with the bosses son to turn on a movie for him and one of the kids in the original room was fussing as I left. As soon as he heard that he said “Katie is such a disaster!” I burst out laughing. I dont even know where he got that one from. Every day I get to hear stuff like that.

Haha that is so funny, kids are so cute. I teach grade 1 and love it – I laugh every single day.
One kid at the beginning of the year asked to go to the miracle room – we call the sick bay the medical room at our school. Another time I was teaching the kids meditation and explained it makes us calm, a few days later a kid asked if we could do medication again to make them calm, I hope to God he didn’t tell his parents thats what we were doing!
I have always loved kids but working with them everyday I am willing to wait a bit longer than I originally thought to have kids of my own.

My son had my BF’s family rolling on Christmas day. He was eating an apple (he has issues chewing with his mouth closed – meaning he doesn’t want to) chomping chomping chomping away. Me: “C, chew with your mouth closed or I’ll drop you off down the road to live with the cows.” C: “You can’t do that mom, I don’t have any gutters”. Me: “ha ha ha ha ha utters C, utters. And I certainly hope you don’t, you’re a boy!”
Best laugh I’ve had in a long time.
