Best Compliment EVER

I don't know about you, but I have been feeling every one of my 42 years lately.  :)  I am tired and sore for the most ridiculous reasons.  Yesterday a 5th grade boy (we will call him my favorite) told me that I am really good with children.  That alone was a wonderful compliment and it was very touching.  :)  I told him that I have three children of my own so I have had a lot of practice.  He gave me an odd look and then went to class.
Today, when I went into the cafeteria today, "my favorite" asked me how I have three children.  I asked him what he meant and he said that he thought I was 25 and that that was too young for three children.  It's one thing when a kindergartener thinks you are 19, but another thing when a 5th grader thinks you are 25.  And that, my blogging friends, is why today was a FABULOUS day!  :)


  1. That sounds like a great day. :) I love when the kids start guessing my age... but it can sting when they guess 10 years older... I usually get guesses ranging between 25 and 45. When I was younger, I had 6th graders guess 20... slowly but surely the guesses are getting older and older... :-)

  2. I know what you mean. Embrace and re-live those compliments whenever you can. I had one of my first graders point out the 1 gray hair on my head today. Sometimes, it's just one of those days. :)

  3. Oh I love those kind of compliments. My favorite being carded at the package store! I always smile and says with pleasure!
