Babies come from where?

21 Oct

Just in case you thought you knew about babies and how they are made.  Listen in on this important nugget of knowledge. 

Today in 4th grade the students were researching renewable and non renewable resources in Virginia.  One group decided that they were not going to use the book and go rogue and just their brains.  Because, ya know, they are in fact more insightful than the publishing company. 

So just spitballing one student says…

S1 You know what is a renewable resource?

S2 – No what?

S1  – babies

S2 – (perplexed, but still going with it)

S1 – Yeah, because the babies come out.  Then the mom and dad make another one and that baby comes out…

It was about at this moment when I asked them if that information was in the book.  No, of course it was not!  What do you think we teach her in the Old Dominion?  I then told them to write down some information they did, in fact, find in their textbook…

In other school news.  I wore my hair straight.  This is not a common occurrence, mind you.  My hair is naturally curly and it takes a little bit for it to become straight.  Like 15/20 mins standing with a straightening iron + heating protecting serum + weather defender serum… 

It doesn’t happen often

I went down to first grade and as soon as I stepped in the door a student comes up to me and says:

S – I like your hair!

Miss G – Thank you!

S – Did you get a haircut?

MG – No I just made it straight

S – Oh.  I like it!

Then, I went to 4th grade and as soon as I step in the classroom a 4th grader asks me if I got a haircut.  Basically the same conversation follows.  What I found interesting was that on both occasions, it was a boy who said something about my hair.  See!  Some boys do pay attention to what you do differently.  Maybe there is hope for them in the future;)
