Random thoughts #19: Kid Snippets

These were collected from the end of the school year through the start of summer πŸ™‚

Kindergartner girls are playing with Disney princess dolls and one looks at her friend’s doll: “Wow, yours has yellow eyes! [inspects hers more closely] Mine’s creepy as well!”

“She writes neat, especially when she draws.”

Kindergarten boys discussing how to hug your shadow.

The entire fifth grade class just spent their entire recess discussing which brand of mayonnaise is better, Best Foods or Miracle Whip.

A little Mexican kindergartener trying to put on a French accent. ::cuteness overload::

Kindergartners think closing your eyes while swinging makes you go higher. Second graders think closing your eyes while swinging is terrifying and that they’re going to fall. There’s something in there about growing older and losing the sense of wonder…

Kindergartners are watching a movie and the characters are sliding down a snowy hill and cliffs to escape the bad guys.
K 1: “That looks like fun!!”
K 2: “That’s not fun, you could die!!”

The kindergartners wanted to know where all the sand in the sandyard came from.

Two 2nd grade girls:
“That was rude.”
“No it wasn’t.”
“To my instincts it was.”
“Well in reality it wasn’t.”
“Well I don’t care about reality.”
Me: “…Ai yi yi”

My siblings and I were seriously discussing whether alligators can jump… The physics and biology involved…

“Why are you guys so afraid of losing teeth?” -a sage 3rd grader to a group of kindergartners who’d spent the whole day wriggling and peering at their teeth in mirrors.

Leave it to a kindergartener to find goofs in a fairy movie. “Her wings are wet, how can she fly?”

Kindergarten girl: “My mommy can only do high ponytails. And she doesn’t know how to braid. I’m like, “You gotta get teached!””

The kids are making Jurassic Park-type noises on the playground…

Little girl on a noisy bus: “I can’t even hear myself! But I know what I’m saying.”

Forget playing “house,” it’s the cutest when kids play “work.”
“I want a promotion!”
“You’ll get a promotion!”
“You already got fired.”
“Okay, you get a promotion: $1 per year.”
“I hate this company!”
“I’m suing, then.”
“I’m gonna sue you for $2.5 million!”
“Come on, we’re taking this company to court.”
“They’re only giving me a raise; I want a promotion!”
“Can you even afford a lawyer?”
“Don’t worry, I’m a professional.”
“Okay, you get a promotion. You’re Vice-Manager.”
“Oohhhhh!! YES! You’re fired. You’re fired! You’re fired! EVERYBODY’S FIRED!”
“You can’t fire me; I’m fireproof.”
“Then we’ll get a fire extinguisher.”

Aren’t kids da bomb? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

Random Thoughts #6: At school today…

Those kindergarteners and 1st graders who’ll pick up a roly-poly or a cricket or a worm with their bare fingers. 😐

There were some fires in the area and because of the ash floating around in the air, the kids at my school couldn’t go out to play for 2 days. 2 days. That’s 6 recesses missed. To say they were annoyed is an understatement.

http://www.yahoo.com/food/why-your-fast-food-order-doesnt-arrive-as-pictured-73623152256.html Well, now I know…

Saw an 18-wheeler make a U-turn in a narrow street the other day. Very harrowing to watch.

Two 2nd grade girls:
Girl 1: “Look, on the tag. “American Girl doll. Made in China.””
Girl 2: “Oh, my goodness, everything’s made in China!”

Plaid is cozy.

Did you know there are kids who can take the crust off an Uncrustable? O_o

Whoever came up with the idea to make toothpaste minty? Genius 😎

Is grilling while watching “Ice Age” the height of irony? #SoCal in #January #doesntfeellikewinter At least we’re getting lovely cloudy weather (my fave!) now. And even a little rain πŸ˜€

Frozen is obviously all the rage among school kids. This is evident not just because wherever I turn, 1st and 2nd graders are singing “Let It Go,” but because I heard a middle school boy singing “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” πŸ˜•


This post was shorter than usual. I don’t know why.

Well, that’s all the time we have for today, folks. Remember, God made you special, and He loves you very much!

Introducing… Random Thoughts!

I thought I’d try posting some Random Thoughts periodically. Just recent musings, or things that happened in the day. Hope you enjoy! Feel free to respond in the comments section! πŸ˜€

Random observations today from the kids I watch in the daycare where I work.

“Turkeys are pretty.”

Well, these are! Made of dried beans, some colored with food coloring, and lentils. 😎 Handmade by the kindergarteners.





“If it doesn’t have wings, it doesn’t look like a ship.”

Got that right. Guess Star Wars didn’t get that memo πŸ˜•

“Some people are archeologists.”

Spoken after said kindergartener found a button on the floor. Oh well, even Indiana Jones had to start somewhere, right?

“It’s cold out there.”

Yes. Yes it is. Has been for the past few days. Cold, cloudy, foggy, rainy…and cold. My favorite type of weather πŸ˜€ Just not always to go out in…

“Jesus died to save people from their sins!”

Take a moment and thank Him for it, won’t you?
