Pot, meet kettle.

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Today’s job was in second grade, so of course I told the class (for the 40th time— I’ve subbed in there several times this year) not to report things to me unless they or someone else was bleeding from the eyeballs, or a safety issue, etc.

Cue the violins, aaaannnnd:


Girl 1: Mrs. Mooba, Girl 2 just called me a tattletale!


Me: Ah, so are you tattling on Girl 2 because she called you a tattletale?


Girl 1: <grins from ear to ear with a sheepish expression, then returns to her seat>


Girl 2: <becomes very absorbed in her spelling assignment>


Pot, meet kettle part 2:

It was almost as satisfying as the day DS 1 came to me complaining how frustrated he was with some of the kids he coaches in swimming. When I asked him what was going on, he said, “Mama, I have to tell them 2 or 3 times to do something, and I even model exactly what I want them to do, and some of them STILL don’t pay attention.” Oh, really? Huh.
