Teachers aren't perfect. If you're sending your child to school thinking that their teacher is a saint, you've thought wrong. Do we always have what's best in mind for your child? Yes! But do we mess up occasionally? Yes, yes we do!
Case in point:
Last week I was going over some visual representations of some science vocabulary words with my kids. I had shown them beakers, which represent volume, and a triple beam balance, which represents mass, etc. when it was time to show them the visual representation for the vocabulary word molecule.
There I go projecting what I saw as a molecule. That was until it was blown up on my projector. And there it was, a giant butt, right there on my white board, projected as big as could be. I instantly died inside and thought, "Hopefully none of my kids have a mind like mine and they see a molecule..." They started shouting, "H2O!! H2O!" and then the room got silent.
I slowly started to rotate the picture as I am explaining to my kids what this picture could represent when all of a sudden one of my cherubs yells out, "It looks like a butt!!"
We died laughing. All of us. Tear forming, gut wrenching belly laughs. I was mortified, but, honestly, it was just what I needed at 1:55pm. It was classic and definitely a moment I will never forget. The genuine laughter coming from those 10 year old bellies made me realize that these silly cherubs get to be mine for an entire school year and with that comes silly moments like this.
Now I'll let you be the judge; butt, or molecule :)
