Last week, for example, I saw the comedy. I teach grade One, one period a week. I am supposed to do a DPA (Daily Physical Activity) class. Since the weather was great most of September, I have been taking the little cuties outside to play. On our way to the playground last Thursday, I caught two boys peeing on a bush!!! What could I do? I laughed! Then I told them to pull up their pants! "What?" They asked, "we had to pee real bad!!!" I love the innocence of stuff like that! So carefree, so NOT self concsious!
The next day, I had grade 7's working on a project. I took a few minutes to just sit on my stool at the front of the room and observe the kids. I zeroed in on two BOYS talking very quietly but very intently. I could see that one boy was looking at the other boy's eyebrows. Finally he asked, "Do you shave your eyebrows?" "Yeah, I get a big mono brow if I don't" "Well, you need to shave them again, hairs are growing back!"
What? Boys worrying about eyebrow grooming???? How did they go from peeing on bushes to manicuring their faces????
