Grandma Joan passed away today while I was teaching at a local Elementary School. While there will be a whole second post to come about her, this is about a little girl. God must have known that I needed a laugh today. :)

I was subbing Kindergarten, and during recess a little girl (let's call her Alexis) asked me to open her carrot package for her. While I was opening it, she decided to make conversation.

Alexis: "I'm allergic to peanuts."
Alexis' friend: "And she's allergic to peanut butter."
Me: "Well, I'm sorry to hear that, but it's good that you know what you can't eat!"
Alexis: "Yeah. Peanuts are no good. My daddy has a peanut. It hangs right here" (she gestures to her crotch) "and it's all furry."
Me: (Trying not to laugh) "You know, that's probably not what we want to talk about at school. Here are your carrots."

See? God knew I needed the laugh. I hope you did, too.


  1. So sorry about Grandma :(
    Kinders are so funny! I'm also very proud of you for subbing that grade :)

  2. LOL So sad, that she compares it to a peanut. ;) lol
