Mish Heather...

So, although most of you have all heard this story but it reminds me why kids are so worth spending time with. I teach in a Kindergarten classroom in the afternoon. Well, on Friday I was reading a book to the group right before it was time to go and the kids were losing interest. One in particular was standing by me and every so often she would put her face really close to me, giggle a little bit and then move. After about three times of this happening I finally asked her what she was doing. She replied in her cute squeky voice, "Mish Heather, I'm smelling you." I of course laughed uncontrollably and asked if I smelled good and apparently I did. Oh by the way it is not a mispelling she does not say Miss, it is a very distinct Mish. Anyways so I go on reading once I compose myself when I see her looking at me again. I asked again what she was doing and she replied, "Mish Heather, you have spots." Now I have no idea what this child is talking about so I ask her where my spots were and she carefully points out a few freckles on my arm. By this time I am thoroughly amused and I'm asking questions just to see what this child is going to say next. So I asked her how many spots I had, she looked at me for a few seconds and finally determined that I had an infiniti number of spots. I have a feeling they learned about infiniti that day because I had heard this new word quite often that morning. I love these little kids sometimes, they are absolutely hilarious.

Hahaha! Mish Heather...so funny! Good thing you smelled good because little children have no problems telling adults that they stink, are ugly, or so forth. Gotta love em!
