Size Matters...or Not?

This morning I was in School doing my usual Music teaching, as well as winding up sundry children...and got a real inadvertent wind-up myself!

I hadn't gone in to talk to the new Junior Infants last week, so thought I would do so today. I must admit that to teach them would, for me, be akin to sitting in a can of live worms, but in short bursts they can be terribly funny. After a bit of chat their teacher asked them whether they knew my name? To which one bright spark exclaimed: 'She's The Piano!'

Of course I am!

Does it give a whole new meaning to, 'Does my bum look big in this?' or what!!!

Ah, leave it to the little ones to cut right to the chase! Oftentimes the comments only make sense in their little minds. The thing is you can't let anything they say get to you. If we did we would all be curled up in the fetal position.

Those little ones do have quick wit sometimes. The smallest ones I teach are in 3rd grade. The younger ones do come over to our school at the end of the day for aftercare until parents pick them up after work.
