Today I had to watch 4 students so that their older sibling/cousin could go to track tryouts. My little friends played in my office with my Disney Vinylmation Mickey Mouse statues, Disney Magnets and a few other Disney treasures that I have in my office. Here are a few of the snip-its of conversations that happened while they were patiently waiting.
DW: Holding 2 statues – Statue 1 says “See this machine, can you infer what it is?” Statue 2 says, “I’m sorry, I don’t infer.” (The Machine was a Disney jelly bean dispenser.)
DS: Mrs. Andruch, we are moving?
Me: Oh no, where are you moving to?
DS: Don’t worry, I know you will miss me! We are moving to Chicago, but I know you will miss me.
DS: Mrs. Andruch, who is in this picture and where are you?
Me: We are at an aquarium. That is my husband, my daughters Mollie and Ashleigh and me.
DS: Why don’t you put this where you won’t forget them?
Promptly places the picture frame on my desk, right on my mouse pad.
All the kids were playing with my vinylmation Mickey Mouse statues and they found a pile of old lunch detention slips. DW passes them out (to the statues) and says, “You have a lunch detention, you have a lunch detention, and you have a lunch detention. But don’t worry, you don’t have them until tomorrow.” I couldn’t help but think about Oprah passing out lunch detentions to everyone in her audience as he stated this to the statues.
Kids say the darnedest things!
