Kids say the funniest things.....

I decided to start my Monday feature about "kid sayings."  My other job besides being a fitness instructor is a Advanced Reading teacher.  They totally crack me up and they say what is on their mind not knowing if it'll hurt your feelings or not.  Their little social filters aren't fully programed so they might insult you but they don't really mean too.  Hopefully their little quips will bring a smile to your face like they do mine.  I'm in the home stretch with school being over in 3 short months and this is my final year as a reading teacher.  I think I'm doing this to soften the blow of leaving my little cherubs (ankle biters) that I've had for 5 years. The group I started with was in 2nd grade and now their all big (and mouthy) and going off to the middle school next year.  What will I do next you say? Mom, Wife, & Personal Trainer, I can't wait!!!


One of my students upon seeing me at my second job dressed in my gym rat gear says, 

"Wow Mrs. T, you look really different without your makeup!"

(gee thanks kid, you just received a Zero on your next paper)

Is that akin to you look like shit without your makeup? Thanks kid. I swear, nine times out of ten, I think my friends look wayyy better in gym rat gear and no makeup. Put some lipstick on em and they look funny to me;)

Hahahahahhaha. Nobody would ever say that to me....I don't wear makeup even when I'm not at the gym. Guess it's just so I don't confuse the kids. LOL

My youngest (15 years old) recently asked me if I "meant to have my haircut like that" after arriving home from an appt.

He has A LOT to learn about woman :)

YEAH... my cd of sweat is on its way!!! THANKS!

I married the 5 minute makeup girl. I love it. She looks the same all the time.
A funny side story: I was introduced to my wife's Mom 18 years ago when she was slightly older than my wife is now. Since she looked pretty d*mn good for a 52 year old, I said "Good genes, gotta marry the daughter" My theories all paid off (the engineer in me)

Gotta love the kids opinions, only ones that are actually honest.

Wes said...

hahahaha - yea, kids say the darnedest things...

RunToFinish said...

my husband is apparently a kid... "are you wearing makeup?"

X-Country2 said...

Hee. I ran into a coworker during a long run yesterday, and he was all, "whoa! I almost didn't recognize you!" Thanks, man.

tfh said...

Haha! Different isn't bad, right? ;)

gotta love the honesty of children..

Marcy said...

Ohhhh yeah I love it. My kids are always running around with their gems of honesty LOL

Jess said...

That's funny. Do you teach multiple grades of Advanced Reading, or just one grade? Sounds interesting. What do they get to read?

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

HAHAHAHAHA!! I keep meaning to write down all of the things Ian (my 9-year-old) says to us and do a post on it!

He's best when he's really earnestly explaining things to you - he goes a mile a minute and makes all kinds of wild claims along the way, usually having nothing to do with his main claim. (Like father like son, I guess.)

The other day he said he wanted to send in a thing to the MythBusters guys: Can you REALLY survive a nuclear bomb by climbing inside an old refrigerator and closing the door? He sez he saw it on Indiana Jones but has his doubts about its veracity.

Yeah, get ON that one, MythBusters guys!

Haha! Yeah, that young one has a bit to learn. I just generally try not to say anything at all. :)

Hey, kids are pretty cool. I do a "Math Superstars" class at Elizabeths school and I LOVE to hang out with these kids and am continually amazed at how much I learn about honesty and learning every other week when I teach their class.

Kids are pretty cool (most of hte time.....) ;-)

ShirleyPerly said...

HA! Yes, I can see a kid saying that not thinking anything of it. My husband used to swim regularly with one guy who once saw him fully dressed somewhere and said "D, you really look different with clothes on" which elicited some giggles from others :-)

Kevin said...

That is funny. The things kids say...

Stuart said...

ah from the mouth of babes!

Rachel said...

Very true!! My own kids are the honest of the bunch, too!!

Kala Marie said...

LOL. I love kids. When I did my student teaching I taught in 4th grade and in 2nd grade. One day I was pretty sure I was having a bad hair day so I asked my 2nd graders and they insisted, "Oh no Ms. Markel, your hair is sooo pretty"... Well, ha. I saw a couple of my 4th grade boys later that day and asked them to tell me the truth and one wrinkled his nose, looked at me and said, "Yeah... do you have a ponytail holder? It's pretty bad."

LOL. Gotta love the honesty!
