A parent teacher conference I'll remember...(warning, funny kid story ahead)

Leave it to my youngest to convince the kindergarten teacher that maybe it's time to retire.

We went over all the progress in reading and math, and Mr. Attitude is passing kindergarten with flying colors. I'm so proud of him, proud of all my children really.

So then the conversation drifts to other things. Mr. Attitude starts telling his teacher about our pet rabbits. We have Brownie, and Cocoa, and Cedar. And...We thought Cedar was a girl, but she likes to hump the other bunnies...

I could see Calvin off to the side giving the NO! NO! signal, but Mr. Attitude went on about bunny parts and all that, and bunnies humping...all the while my face turning forty shades of red.

His teacher just laughed and said, "Now there's a story you can tell at his graduation!"

I'll bet you were wondering if there were a way to dig a hole in the classroom floor and hide in it! ;-)

Art Linkletter had it right: Kids Say the Darndest Things!

Too funny!
Teachers need a good laugh, we really do.

Denise- Yes, I felt like burrowing. But then again, I knew this teacher fairly well, because she was Starflower's kindergarten teacher. So I knew she might be cool, with even this!

FC- I'm sure Mr. Attitude will have teachers laughing at every grade level. I think he is destined to be the 2020 Class Clown!

That's a great story, Deb. Mr. Attitude is quite a guy.....thank goodness he only said "humping" instead of something much more descriptive!

RuthieJ- I've been thinking that "humping" is a relatively innocent, vague term that is pretty kid friendly. Or maybe I'm justifying because he heard it right from me!
