Out of the Mouths of Babes Linky Party

I have had so much fun lately visiting other teacher's blogs and learning from them.
Thought I'd join in with this"Out of the Mouths of Babes" funny story Linky.

I have shared this one before but it STILL cracks me up.
My 8/9 yr old students seemed quite concerned that I was not married (YET). While the girls logically tried to figure out my age all year  through the use of notes in my mailbox (aka "circle yes or no" :-), one of my boys went the more direct route.

Child: Ms. Wright, are you a "Ms" because you lost your husband at D-Day?
Me: Um, excuse me, what did you just say?
Child: Did you LOSE YOUR HUSBAND at D-Day because you know a lot of girls lost their husbands there.
Me: Well that is true but, when was D-Day?
Child: 1945...
Me: Yes and it's 2011....do I look like I'm over 80?
Child: Well, where's your husband then?
Me: Good Question....

Another one comes from the book of Treasured Goodbyes my students gave me at the end of Student Teaching:

Dear Ms. Wright,
I will shrivel up and die with boredom without you.
(Insert very graphic and dramatic stick figures)

Gotta love small children. They make even the hard days so very worth it!
 If you want to link up go here:


  1. Funny about the husband comments... I had a student this year determined to marry me off. She told me one day "You need to get married so you can retire and have babies!"

    Gotta love 'em!

  2. Too funny! When I got married this year one of the students said "did you get knocked up or something?"
    I am a new follower. Good luck in the blogging world...it's so addicting!
    Peace, Mel D
    Oh the Places We’ll Go

  3. That is such a funny story about D-Day!! When I was student teaching, my first graders were trying to hook me up with the presidents, so I understand your pain!!

    Marvelous Multiagers!
