So, I finally told my 1st graders this week that I was going to have a baby and of course this news spread quickly to other kids around the school. Here are some of their responses to the news:
-One of my kids from 2 years ago said, "Mrs. Groves one of your kids said you got pregnant, that true?".
-"Do you have to eat baby food since you have a baby in your tummy?"
-"I think you should name him Cutie."
-"How's yo baby doin' Mrs. Groves?"
-"Man Mrs. Groves your baby is growing fast!"
-"Why can't you just have that baby right now?"
-"What chu gonna have Mrs. Groves?"
-Also, I was telling them about the ultrasound pictures and one of Ashley's kids said, "Oh yeah I know, that is where you see your black baby!"
-"Last night I told my mom, dad, grandma, aunt.... you wuz havin' a baby Mrs. Groves"
-And of course the..."how do you have that baby?"....and one kid saved me (without knowing) and said, they cut a big hole in my momma's tummy to get that baby out!
They are too funny! I wish you could hear them saying these things. It makes it so much better.
