Today in class we were working on creating timelines of the students' lives. I was working with one of my precious angels trying to help him draw himself when he was born...otherwise known as a baby. I was helping and all of a sudden he is crying and yelling "NO!!" I don't know why he is crying so in my most sympathetic voice I could find I ask him what is the matter. He says, "You made me fat, I wasn't fat when I was a baby!" And he was dead serious!
I tried so hard not to laugh, but looking at my drawing of a baby in a blanket I had to because it was pretty pathetic and I guess he was right, the baby was on the hefty side. Of course me laughing opened up another can of worms because he thought I was laughing at him. I had to explain to him I was laughing at my drawing and how bad it was.
I am considering writing a book of what comes out of the mouths of my babes.
