One of my kids was sharing his story during Writing Workshop this morning. It was about his birds at home and about how much they eat and drink. His best friend asked him if he had just one bird or two. The writer responded (rolling his little eyes), "TWO! Don't you remember them when you came to my house for my birthday?" "Your birthday" his bf asked? Then from the other side of the circle, my pint-sized student with a personality the size of a linebacker pipes up with, "and that's why it was his BIRDday." Giggles all around.
(If you cracked a smile - you can hang with my kids. If you rolled your eyes - you might want to avoid my room).
