A conversation between a preschool teacher and preschool students.

Win

Teacher is sitting on floor building blocks with children.

Mrs. M. How old are you?” – Boy Student

“I’m 51 years old.” – Teacher

“Oh.  Okay.” – Boy Student

“Why do you ask?  How old did you think I was?” – Teacher

“Same age as my mom.” – Boy Student

“Oh.  How old is your, Mom?” – Teacher

“She’s 33.  I thought you were younger than she was.” – Boy Student

Lose

Teacher sitting at table outdoors coloring with children.  Preschool student is looking at teacher’s photo on name badge.

“Mrs. M. Is that a picture of you?” – Girl Student

“Yes it is.” – Teacher

“Why doesn’t it look like you?” – Girl Student

“Well, maybe the photo has different lighting.  Don’t you think the photo looks like me?” – Teacher

“No.  You have a lot more wrinkles in real life.” – Girl Student

  1. Thanks for sharing I had a good laugh!
    “Out of the mouths of babes…”

  2. Funny – honestly, I think the second kid is exaggerating and mistaken. As an 8th grade teacher, most of my student’s parents are closer in age – though I have at least one 33 year old parent – they were born when I was in college. Yikes. It’s my 40th anniversary of 8th grade. You are only as young as you feel. Keep feeling young! Have a great week.
