3 Weeks and Counting

My subbing job is winding down - albeit slowly...

I have to admit that I'll miss these kids when my time is up, but I'll be glad to get back to my life, that's for sure!  Math and science are not my favorite subjects, but I'm managing.

The kids, for the most part, are terrific. There are a few who I consider a challenge, a few who I consider characters, and just a few who are a combination of the two. Those will go far... and someday I'll be able to say, "I remember when...".

This week the kids asked, "Mrs. Ladybug, how much do you make for being a sub?"
I responded with the dollar figure per day. One little girl pulled out her calculator and did a calculation.
"Mrs. Ladybug, that's $x per week. That's pretty good!"
"Yes, now take half away for taxes."
She did the calculation.
"Oh... Mrs. Ladybug, that's definitely not worth it!"

I'm still chuckling over that one!

That is adorable! Oh, sorry, I stumbled upon your blog, and just had to comment. I subbed for a couple years, and is hard work! But the kids say some of the darndest things, don't they? =)
