. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dear Lauren,

April 17, 2012

Dear Lauren,


shirt: Old Navy  skirt: Target  boots: dsw  

I am glad you convinced me to buy this shirt many months ago, even though it wasn't on clearance.  I definitely got my money's worth.  Worn here, here and here.  



I wore the bracelet that we bought in Mexico two summers ago.  I so badly wish we were going back this summer!

(I think this is my brother's first appearance on my blog)

I think I need some serious psychology work done in my classroom.  I may just have some of the weirdest students this year that ever existed.  Here's an example:

After many times of me asking these two girls to put away a piece of red string that they were always playing with, I told them they needed to leave it at home.  This string had a name and was treated like a pet. 
Not too long ago the string came back.  I told the girls they could not bring it back and one of them asked in all seriousness, 

"What if it is invisible?" 

To which I raised my eyebrows and widened my eyes and she replied, 

"I mean what if I put an invisibility cloak over it?" 

Invisible or not.  Leave it at home. 

You may be thinking that these girls just have a good imagination.  If you interacted with them daily you would think it was way past a good imagination and into incredibly weird.  

Want another really weird story?  Read this post.  Same girls.  

They also have secret codes and half the time I'm convinced they are saying and writing mean things about me.  
I think I'm turning into a crabby paranoid teacher. 

Maybe I'm the one that needs the therapy. 

Either way Lauren, come do some work in my classroom with your mad counseling skills.  

I'm starting to feel like the end of the year is far away.  

I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you in less than 4 weeks!

You know, I've been having a "good" week with the kids. But you're right: deep down, they are weird.weird.weird. Some of them just show it on the outside! I'll miss them when school is out though! :)

I totally relate to the weird kids! We always swear at work that we are going to write a book about the things we encounter on a daily basis. I've started doing a quote of the day of my fb of all the funny/weird/ridiculous things my kids say in class :) Haha!! My co-workers now submit things they hear for me to use as my QOTD! Ha! Your outfit is super cute!!

Just weird, plain and simple. My sil called me a couple years ago freaked out because one of the girls my niece friended at school was talking nothing but vampires, well, let me rephrase that...she thought she was one! LOL Yes, just about the time that trilogy was a huge hit!! Freaked my sil out big time, and even now both she and my niece call the girl strange/freaky/weird!

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Cute skirt, and I love that bracelet! I would definitely be a paranoid teacher, and that story was weird.

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Your chambray shirt was definitely a good buy...it's so versatile! I wear mine all the time :) That's weird about the string...maybe this means they need to get actual pets instead?

The kids in your class are too funny. Love that bracelet from Mexico!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

How funny I just bought the same shirt from Old Navy. I found it in the clearance rack & I was disappointed when it rang up regular price but wanted it so bad I took it which is a bummer bc who likes to buy anything full price at Old Navy? They run sales ALL the time!

Ha! That is both weird and funny about your students. I'd request evals on them all~haha

Haha! I totally had a student like that last year. One time I caught her stealing and collecting ALL of the erasers from everyone in the classroom... SO strange!

Anywho, I LOVE that TOP!

Mimi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have that same shirt and I keep trying to find a skirt to wear it with - you've paired it perfectly!

At least the two weird friends have each other! Nothing worse than being the only kid in the class. ;)

J's Style said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Hi from Mingle Monday! :) I just bought a similar shirt from Old Navy at regular price too because I knew it'd get a ton of wear. I love the ways you've worn it so far!
