I'm in love with first grade. These children have me laughing (either with them or at them) all day long. I'm going to keep a running list of the things that are said in the classroom because they seriously crack me up.

Karin: "How are you doing, Miss Vick? Are you driving you away yet?"
Me: "Not quite!"
G: panicked look- "Miss Vick, I don't want you to drive away!"

Cl: "I'm going to use these colors to try to make clear!" (holds up black, gray and yellow crayons)

T: "Well, there are four of those math things in every fact family"
Karin: "Math facts?"
T: "Oh, yeah. Math facts"

Random first grader from another class: "Who's your daughter?"
Me: "My daughter?"
First grader: "umm yeah?"
Me: "I don't have a daughter..."
E: "Yeah, Miss Vick! You're a mom!!"
Me: "No, E. I am definitely NOT a mom."
E: "Yeah! Somebody told me you're a mom!!"
...conversation continues...until FINALLY...
R: "E, Miss Vick CAN'T be a mom because she's a MISS!! Mrs. are married but Miss means they're not married, so if Miss Vick isn't married, she CAN'T be a mom!!"
Me: "Yep, R. You are exactly right. I'm not married so I definitely cannot be a mom"

Okay, you know that Cadillac commercial with the song? It's this one. Anyway, we were in art the other day and that song came on and D goes, "Ugh. This commercial is SOO annoying. It's not like I'm going to buy a car..." Yeah, D. It's not like you're seven or anything...
