"So, man, why were you so down on that guy anyway?" one kindergartner asked me, referring to my bff. I couldn't get him to clarify how I was 'down on him' but I'm guessing trying to stop my bff from running out of the classroom did kind of interfere with my bff's agenda. I never thought about how this looked from the kids' perspective.
I was working with the same kid during writing workshop and I took my sweater off, not realizing he would notice.
"Oh good, I think you are prettier without that thing"
"Mrs Lipstick! I like your head Where did you get those?" another child asked, referring to my pigtails. He seemed rather confused when I explained it was my normal hair.
