Little Miss Sunshine

Again. My class knows that the top two loves of mine are the Spurs and Little Miss Sunshine. Today my student D came into the class. She waited until I walked over to her area. Then she says: "Miss G. I went to Target and bought a present for you." I love presents so I was thrilled to see what it was. She goes on to pull out a cute, retro looking Little Miss Sunshine bag. Even though I didn't mention it I actually already bought the bag myself so I kept the one she got me at school. I love that my class thinks of me when they are out and about. They're a cute bunch.

Later in the day another student, J, made me a card on yellow construction paper and with Little Miss Sunshine on it. Then later, D made me a similar card. She drew Little Miss Sunshine and wrote a very sweet and cute note. Then on the back it said:

Ms. G....
+
D.....
Friends Forever

This cracked up Jen and I so much. D also said: "I know why you love Little Miss Sunshine. It's because you're like her. You're both...(at this point I'm praying she's not going to say because we're both round)...your smiles are the same. And your cheeks. You have the same cheeks". (Hmmm....Little Miss Sunshine has dark spots on her cheeks. Either I need to get new make-up or my face is always dirty.)

In the end I understood what she meant which is exactly why I love Little Miss Sunshine. She totally brightens up everyone's day.

I'm so jealous of your sweet little class! They sound like such a fun little group, how come I get stuck with all the bullies in my class?

Your class sounds so SWEET! And how lovely that they love you enough to notice your likes and dislikes! It sounds like you have a wonderful group of kids.

(sorry to Bonnie. It sounds like I have the grown-up versions of your class..)
