Little Treasures

As I was sitting at my desk writing out red slips for the students in my class who had misbehaved (A great way to re-live the glorious moments throughout the day when my beautiful students show their true colors! :) I heard a terrifying cry... "MS. GUINN!!!! COME QUICK"

The terror in their voice truly sent a shiver down my spine, but nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see.

A nice little mound of something that was NOT chocolate was sitting prettily on my carpet. We found a few more little prizes around the room. Somebody made a "no no" in their pants and just kicked it out their pant leg. The janitors did not come so I was forced to pick it up myself, BUT not before I taped it off so we would remember exactly where to disinfect. My room looked like a miniature crime scene. We now take potty breaks often!!

Ego killer

I am going to start of by saying, that no, I am not in the most athletic shape of my life, HOWEVER, I wouldn't say I am "large" by any means. My students must disagree.

A little girl in my class came up to me and put her hand on my stomach then said, "You look like you are about to have a little baby."

Me: Is my belly getting big?

Little boy: "NO! you are perfect in every way!" (He knows what to say, he has sisters)

Little boy #2: "Ms. Guinn, you are a very big girl."

:( I am not having a baby (for the record). But maybe I need to lose some weight?


There have been a few instances where gas had been released in my classroom. We have discussed that it is no laughing matter, and we are not to pass gas to be funny. I even went so far as to tell them if they needed to step out into the hall so not to smell up the room, they could.

Today I had a little boy come up to me who stated, "I know tooting isn't funny, but I need to tell you something."

I have to admit, I was intrigued. So I responded, "Go on..."

To which he replied, " I tooted and burped at the same time, and it made my stomach suck in a little, should I go to the nurse?'


I said, "Most definitely! Please, go share with her what just happened."
