Yesterday I was teaching a science class for Kindergartners through Second graders at a Homeschool co-op. One of the younger girls raised her hand and told me how her family had "found fluffy in the road and they pulled over and put him in the car before he got ran over, and she was so glad to have fluffy at home." "Oh I'm glad you found your kitty," I said. She gave me a look of disgust and said, Fluffy's NOT a cat, he's a turtle!" What was I thinking?
This one ranks right up there with the time several years ago when I was teaching Sunday School and one of my pre-schoolers said their Daddy couldn't come to church that morning because "Mommy put him in time out, she said with an attitude like he had, he could just sit there on the couch, we were goin' to Church." Hmmmmm.
