The Things They Say

I have loved being back in the classroom – even if it has only been for a four days this term. The kids say such wonderful things.

 Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula (Grammostola rosea)

“I am going to marry her, and we are going to live in Scotland and keep pet tarantulas and scorpions”

[his classmate says she is quite happy with this!]

“You’re quite short, aren’t you, Miss”

“Yes, just under five feet tall”

“My Dad says people shrink when they get old, especially ladies”


And best of all

“So what's your favourite food then?”

“I like spogglinese, Miss”

Do you think he eats it with Dalek Go Balls, like Mel’s family?


  1. Awwww bless their socks. I love the random things kiddies say. Just the other day DD looked out the window and announced that it was "a bit nipple out there mummy" She ment nippy but I absolutely wet myself!

  2. I was told that I wasn't old last night by a very cool teenager. Not the un-cool sort of old anyway. Made my week!

  3. How fun! Kids do say sweet things sometimes! I'm glad you are enjoying your time in the classroom.

  4. I was once told "You're not like a Mummy are you".

  6. Angela - I'm glad you are enjoying the little darlings - I wouldn't have the patience for it! Have a great week.

  7. Too cute! Out of the mouth of babes.:-)
