FUN Friday


Let's start off with some great music.

Most of my classes this week were Dog Bite Prevention - Pre-K, Kinder and First Grade. When I arrived at my first Pre-K class this week, I admit I was nervous. They were just waking up from their naps. I was expecting cranky kids. I didn't get any.

The cutest little girl with her corkscrew curly reddish hair was busy giving orders. They had napped on cots so she pointed to one on the ground and then to two girls, stating, "You two pick up that one. You grab that end and she'll grab the other end." Then, she turned to the little boy next to her and ordered him to grab one end of her cot. As they were walking the cots across the room, she passed a girl who was trying to fold her blanket. "You're not doing that right. I'll be right back." I was trying not to laugh. The teacher told me that she doesn't have to do anything because little Molly has them all pitching in to clean up every day.

The floor was cleared within minutes thanks to Molly...except for one cot with little Miguel still sound asleep. Molly leaned down and gently shook him. "Miguel, it's time to wake up," she whispered to him. He didn't move. Suddenly, she bends over and looks under the cot. She straightens up, shakes him a bit rougher and proclaims, "Miguel, wake up! You didn't have an accident!" Little Miguel shot up in his cot and FELT his pants (I thought this was adorable). He turns to her and says, "I didn't! I didn't have an accident!" She leaned over to hug him and Miguel put his hands up. "No. Hi-five!" So they hi-fived. How cute is that??

Are you Molly - ending a busy week giving marching orders to your troops? Or are you Miguel - celebrating your accident free week?


And have a GREAT weekend!


  1. Oh. My. God. That is ADORABLE! It must be so much fun teaching that class :))

  2. That is the cutest story ever! Someone should film her because I'm sure her parents will look back someday with pride. Thanks for sharing this story.


  3. You know, I was thinking. That little girl could be president some day. She's a great leader and can sure delegate.


  4. OMG that is insanely cute!! I love kid stories. :)

  5. Aw that is so cute! And you have an award at my blog. :)

  6. We have kids in our class that are very excited when they don't have an accident. Molly sounds very adorable.

    It's cool you teach these things to small children and I admire your patience with them.

    I hope you're having a great weekend!
