He then says the most dreaded words a woman can ever hear. When I asked him what he said he of course would not fess up, but I insisted he repeat it. Then, I said, ARE YOU TALKING TO ME? And he was like, no I'm talking to him...pointing to a random second-grader passing by.
I knew what he said - he knew what he said. It was lingering in the air. We both just stood there. I just didn't know what to say or do after hearing, "Shut up, BIG BUTT" from a third-grader!
- Should I yell at him? No. He wouldn't care.
- Should I tell the principal? No. Too embarrassing.
- Should I tell his teacher? No. She's a skinny bitch.
I just pointed my finger and gave him that "teacher/mommy stare" that made him know I meant business. Although, I think the reaction was the same as #1 above.
I went back to my classroom and tried to set up a few mirrors to see my butt and if it in fact looked large in my chosen pants that day. I didn't notice any visible difference. I really don't think my butt is all that big, but I could be living in denial. People do it every day.
Today's Daisy: Don't let the words of a third-grader who is on the way to the principal's office ruin your day!
