Bwah-ha-ha! Some days bring loud guffaws. You just never know what a kid is going to say.
Child A: Blankity, blank, blank, blank. (Using God's name in vain, which we don't do at our school. We try to teach why and show respect for God.)
Me: Oh, A., we don't get to use God's name that way. We want to show respect for Him.
Child B: Teacher, I said that at home. My daddy got mad.
Me: Did you get in trouble?
Child B: No. I had to stand in the corner.
Me: That is getting in trouble.
Child C (with great expression and conviction): That is called TIME OUT. (Child C has obviously had trouble AND time out.)
Continue discussion by other students about TIME OUT and getting in trouble. If I could just sit and write down everything they say...of course, some things I could not repeat.
