My Funny Valentine

Valentime's Day, as the kids at tutoring call it (along with Justin Cornell and probably others too), has brought out interesting comments from the kids. Here are a few excerpts with the names changed to protect the innocent:

Bob-3rd Grade
Bob: You kids don't know anything about love. When you are my age then you will understand
Me: Oh really, you aren't that much older than they are.
Bob: Ms. Katie I am 9 and I am going through puberty.
(Really? 9? Did I know that word when I was 9?)

Bill-2nd Grade
Bill: (noticing the ring on my hand) Ms. Katie did you just get married?!
Me: Um I have been married as long as you have known me.
Bill: Really? How long?
Me: Almost 4 years!
Bill: Wow, so you've been married since you were like a kid huh?
(haha, sure if 22 is still a kid)

Sue-5th Grade
Sue: Ms. Katie do you share a bathroom with your husband?
Me: Yes we do.
Sue: I don't understand why people be bathin' together. That don't make no sense to me. Ms. Katie do you have to bathe with your husband?
Me: I don't HAVE to.
(I didn't think it was my place to have this kind of conversation)

Me: So are you making your parents anything for Valentine's Day?
Betsy: No because my dad just moved out and he is living in compartments.
(I think she meant apartments and it's ok, he moved back home)

Betsy-Kindergarten and her tutor
Betsy: Who lives at your house?
Tutor: My husband and I.
Betsy: And your kids?
Tutor: No we don't have any kids yet.
Betsy: But I thought you were married?
Tutor: I am. We just don't have any kids yet.
Betsy: Why?
Tutor: Because we don't want kids just yet.
Betsy: But when will they come?
Tutor: When we decide to have them.
Betsy: Well what did your doctor say?
(I don't know how this conversation ever ended but who knew a kindergartener could grill you so hard?)

Kids are so funny! Everything is so literal with them. I laugh at my 3 year old every day!
