The hilarious things the children I teach have said.

One expensive coffee!

This morning, I stopped in at a cafe near work to grab a coffee. Upon returning to my car, it would not start. The batter was flat. Dead. Empty. NOTHING. 

This hasn’t happened to me. I got my gorgeous car nearly five years ago and there’s nothing wrong with it. I called a trusty roadside assistance group to come and rescue me. They come out for free, but charge for the battery. Turns out, this coffee I stopped for was the most expensive coffee of my life. The battery cost me $190! Ouch!!! 

The children asked why I was running late and looked like I couldn’t find my Mummy. Upon telling them what I had to do, I was told,

“Those are the consequences when you don’t charge and look after your belongings Miss Rainbow!”

Gee, thanks, kid. 


Doctor Flo’

I was dealing with stomach pains (that time of the month; that’s right, it doesn’t even stop for a Year One teacher!) and one particular pain caught me off guard and I put my hand on my lower stomach. One child says to me,

“Oh Mrs Rainbow, I think you better go and sit on the toilet. Your tummy probably has some runny poos in there.”

Obviously, I did not need to go into what was really going on, so I said, “Oh, thank you sweetie.” By the end of the day, my whole class was talking about my ‘runny poos’. What a treat.
