- 2 year old Max "Miss Michelle - I named my stuffed cat after you."
- 4 year old neice Dana gently places a hand on each of my cheeks and while gazing into my eyes says, "Your head is huge." (It was a tender moment.)
- Ellie, 5 year old at church, after I complimented the children on how well they sing she stood up, stretched out her arms and shouts "I was born to sing!"
- 4 year old Alec says to other 4 year old girl "I can't have a girlfriend! I am only 4 years old! I am only in preschool!"
- 4 year old at church "My Mom accidentally got candies full of alcohol - she still ate them all."
- 3 year old Rosie "Watch out Miss Michelle, I am a handful today." (I appreciated the warning.)
- 3 year old to one of my employees, "Hey, I know what your name is. Your name is Miss PMS!" (We couldn't stop laughing after that one!)
- 4 year old Bailee from my advanced PreK gymnastics class, when asked to do a new skill on the bars, wagged her finger at me and said, "Honey, you did not ask me to swing on the bar!" Me: "Oh, yes I did." Bailee: "Oh no you didn't" (all with a little Twang to it; my favorite part was her calling me honey.)
- 5 year old Chase to an employee, "Miss Shannon, you look hot today - want to go hot tubbing?"
There are many more comments like that, and I wish I have kept a better record. Many of the things kids tell me in all innocence are not appropriate to write about - but still very entertaining. I absolutely love the total honesty - with no ulterior motive - that you get from children. Of course I don't think I would find it funny if an adult told me my head was huge...
