Five for Friday - Kid Quote Edition

Was is just me or did this week seem to fly by? Also, whereas last week I was exhausted beyond belief, I am feeling wide awake at 5pm! Talk to me again at 7pm and see how I feel! 

Once again I am linking up with Kacey for her linky Five for Friday.
This week is brought to you by the letter L for laughs. This week has been filled with so so many laughs. I am truly in love with my kinders! They are hilarious! It is hard to keep a straight face around them! There personalities have really started to show through and it is fabulous to get to know them a bit more each day. Here are my five favorite quotes of the week!

Little girl: Welcome to our restaurant. The list says this: eat only healthy food. Don't eat junk food. If you don't eat healthy food you will get f-a-t. What would you like to eat?

Day 1
Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Little girl: A cow

Day 2
Me: Do you still want to be a cow when you grow up? 
Little girl: Yup! I want to be a cow!

Day 3
*while playing with toy animals*
Me: What is your favorite animal?
Little girl: A horse.
Me: A horse is your favorite animal but you want to be a cow when you grow up?
Little girl: No, not a cow anymore! I want to be a princess!

Little boy: My favorite show is Family Guy.
Little girl: Ohhh! That's a bad show! You can't watch it!
Little boy: Blame my mom she lets me watch it.

Little girl: Parents are the worstest. 
Other little girl: I love my parents sooooooo much. 
Little girl: Well my dad just called me a crybaby. 
Other little girl: Oh yea that's the worstest.

Little boy: I went to Mexico with my family.
Me: I want to come on vacation with you! You go on the best trips! 
Little boy: You can't come with me! I didn't know you! 

If you have any funny kid quotes from this week I'd love to hear them! Hearing hilarious kid quotes are definitely the highlight of my week! Enjoy your weekend! I know I will!

Five for Friday Obviously on a Saturday

I seriously don't think I will ever post a Five for Friday on a Friday again. It just doesn't happen. By the end of a five day week, I'm lucky if I can even make it in the door without falling asleep.

This is my short and sweet version of Five for Friday because let's face it, I'm too tired to even go get my camera and upload my pictures from the week for this post. I can't even be bothered to post a pic on instagram and that takes a whopping 2.5 seconds! #slackermuch

Enjoy the top 5 things I have learned from teaching kindergarten so far! 

Well that's it, I'm eating lunch and then probably off to take another nap. Friday the 13th was brutal to say the least!

Currently September!

It cannot be September 2nd already. Really, where did the time go? This year seems to be on full speed ahead with no slowing down!

Since I must embrace the fact that it really is September, I will be linking up with Farley to add a little happiness to my day. 

I've heard storms before, but this one takes the cake. It was so incredibly loud! The storm woke me up at 5am on my day to sleep in. I tried to fall back to sleep but it was no use. Oh well. I guess it is for the best. I had more time to link up with Farley that way! 

The weather has changed for the most part around here. It has been nice and cool and I have been fully embracing it with longer sleeves and comfy sweatshirts. I hope the cool weather continues because it can get mighty hot at school!

I know, I know, you all warned me! I saw the some e-cards, I read the blog posts, I saw the instagrams. However, I was naive. I thought maybe I would be so excited I wouldn't notice the tiredness. Wrong. Very, very, wrong. Back to school is beyond exhausting. I wouldn't survive if it wasn't for all the naps. There truly is no bedtime too early anymore in my book!

Following off the previous section, waking up early is not really my thing. Alarm clocks...nope! I could very well do without them! Going from spending the summer sleeping in until nearly noon to waking up at 5am just isn't really going so well. What was I thinking this summer? I should have been waking up early every day so this wouldn't have been a big deal. 

I finally wrote in my planner last night. I caught up on last week and wrote in what was to come this week. I am hoping that I can stick with it this year. I spent the big bucks and I want to get my money's worth. Usually I quit the first week in. Not this time around! It will really help me in the future if I keep with it. Fingers crossed!

Love Yourself Spot
First on the list is all about the children. The one thing I wish I had gotten a chance to do last year is take the time to learn more about the kids I worked with. I know that by truly connecting with each child I will be able to reach and teach better. Doing so will make me and the children so much happier. 

Next, I need to stop worrying about everything. All summer I worried about starting student teaching. I truly had no reason to worry because I know it is going to be a wonderful experience. My cooperating teacher is amazing and I am going to learn so much! Now, I am already worrying about taking over. I need to slow down, stop stressing, and live more in the moment. I will miss all the happy times in the now if I focus on worrying about everything to come. 

Finally, take time for myself. I know student teaching is going to be a busy experience so I want to be sure to take time for myself and not become fully consumed with all things school related. Finding the balance is key. 

Well there's my currently! Good thing Farley posted, or I might not have even had the motivation to blog at all this long weekend. Head on over and link up if you haven't already! In the meantime, is 9am too early to take another nap???
