Knock on Wood

Today was the first day back at school for most Texas children.  And at my school, it went incredibly smooth.  I hesitate to even write that much less say it out loud.   Knock on wood....and all that.  I suspect most of them were scared and tomorrow they will all come out of their shell. 

I had one kindergartener tell me it was her very first day of school.  I don't think she even realizes that all the other kids around her are there for the first time, too. It doesn't get much cuter than a kindergartener on their first day.

At lunch, we tell them to raise their hand if they need help opening anything.  I head over to a raised hand.....

Me:  Do you need help?

Him:  Are you Mrs. Jones? (changed the name to protect others besides myself)

Me:  No, but I do look like her.  I'm Mrs. Hackney.

Him:  Okay, Mrs. Horny......

Whoa!  I've never been called that before.  Ever. Even in my younger days.  I didn't bother correcting him....just opened his milk.  But it definitely is worth repeating on here.


  1. Oh I am so glad school is back in session!!!!!!!!!Gotta love these snippets of yours. Looking forward to so many more :) What did your hubby think?

  2. Oh, I do miss them! Hope this year brings many more such moments, Mrs. Horny.
