Let's go into the weekend laughing, shall we?
For all my writer friends out there, here is a great speech to inspire by a young child who just rode a bike for the first time.
Oh these boys are just too cute. "I'm a Little G." And the G is for Genius!
I love when they ask what they would do with a million dollars...buy a big house so he can live it with all the other kids who don't have a home. Too sweet.
One last funny to take you into the weekend:
When I was done with Dog Bite Prevention, I had a really sleepy Kinder girl yawn the biggest, widest yawn that I have ever seen.
ME: My goodness, that was a big yawn!
GIRL: Yeah. It was a really BIG day.
ME: You're only five. There's going to be bigger days than today in your life.
GIRL: But I'll be way older.
ME: That will make it easier.
GIRL: No, but I can nap whenever I want to when I'm old like you.
(NOTE: This is the same little girl who said, "You're really pretty!" when I walked in the door so she was forgiven for the 'old' comment.)
In First Grade, I held up the Dog Bite Prevention board with Lily and Erik on it (She's our "safe" to go up to dog - she has all three things: leash, collar and grown-up owner.)
GIRL: That looks just like my dog!
ME: She does?
GIRL: Yes! My dog is white with brown spots all over.
I had to look at the picture of Lily again. Yes, her dog looks JUST like Lily. ;-)
I have to say that I usually hear from the kids -
My dog is brown and her name is Brownie.
My dog is black and his name is Blackie.
My dog is white and her name is Snowball/Snowie/Blanca.
This week, I got a different version.
GIRL: Ms. Jennifer, I have two dogs. Did you know that they are chihuahuas?
ME: No, I didn't. What are their names?
GIRL: Well, the black one is Blackie and the white one is Milky!
Milky! We have a new name for white dogs!
I'll be wrapping presents at Barnes & Noble all weekend to raise money for Paws and Learn (8 hours each day). Plan to squeeze in a hike Saturday morning and a bike ride Sunday morning.
What about you - any big weekend plans?
