Kids Say the Funniest Things!

This one's a goodie!

Recently, I took a hiatus from tutoring - from January through May - so I could better handle Connor's difficult pregnancy and take a breather during the transition of going from two to three kids (which in my humble opinion, was WAY easier than going from one to two kids...but I digress). I really missed my students, so I've been very excited to resume tutoring this week.

Several of the kids I worked with before are returning, but I have a new student - a sibling of a kid who I already work with. He is going to start kindergarten this Fall, and today was our first session.

Not knowing much about this little guy, I started out with a very informal interview, so I could get an idea about his likes and dislikes, what he likes to read, etc. His answers are absolutely precious, hilarious, unexpected, and wholly entertaining! And I quote:

Me: So, W. what do you like to do?

W: play with nerf guns and color

yep, typical boy :)

Me: Tell me what you are good at.

W: Pickin' up stuff, putting stickers away, and pickin' up glass.

Glass? wonder what the story is behind that :)

Me: In school, what are you really good at?

W: sharing, picking up

humm...he sure likes to pick up a lot...maybe I should invite him over for playdates with Lucy :)

Me: What's hard for you?

W: Going to middle school when I'm five and I don't know what to do...
(a flash of fear spread across his face...)

aw, poor dear...I let him know he has a while before he has to worry about locker codes, crowded lunchrooms, and choosing electives and after-school clubs.

Me: What do you like to read about?

W: bats, snakes, spiders, cows, horses, and God.

awwww, sweet kid

Me: We're going to spend some time together this summer reading and learning. What do you want to happen during our time together?

W: I hope your little tiny baby grows.

Love the honesty! It's not me he's going to be looking forward to seeing, but little Connor. I think we'll make a science experiment and measure Connor each week and chart the growth :-)

I love kids, love 'em, love 'em!
