Out of the mouths of...tweens?

Teacher: Note passing isn't allowed in class. Hand it over.
Student: It's not a note! It's a list!
Teacher: Hand it over.
Student: It's a list. See?!
Teacher: And now it's my list, since you were passing it in class.

Here it is, the note/list of the day:

To: Ashley, no one else
From: Jenny

Birthday List
cell phone
white bunny webkinz
hippo Webkinz
Something High School Musical

Life is much simpler when you're turning ten. I'm not sure this little darling's family will spring for the iPod or the cell phone, but they might pick up the Webkinz animals. High School Musical is her favorite -- her locker has a big picture of Zach Ephron hanging in it -- so maybe that's where the cool gifts will turn up.
I just hope they'll remind her not to pass notes in class!

What if teachers passed notes in staff meetings? No, don't answer that. It might be like the crazy emails at my last school.

I just wish my wishlist consisted of a couple webkins to make me happy! My kid is 10 and I hear you on the simple life front.

My daughter will be 15 soon and has asked for a cell phone for at least three years. Not gonna happen soon. The iPod she has, courtesy of grandma. But she still asks for Webkinz! Yay!

Yesterday my 10 year old's teacher tells me he was passing notes while she was talking. Turns out he was just writing "I'm Bored. I'm the President of the Bored." They had a talk about respect for the teacher and other students. I didn't laugh about the note till later.

Maybe they'll spring for an iPod knock-off, too. There are some nice mp3 players out there - unless she was hoping for the iPod Touch. Keep dreaming!

My daughter just turned 12. On her list was Legos, Indiana Jones books and Star Wars light sabers. *sigh* I think I raised a geek : ) Of course, that may be because I myself am one....

My daughter just turned 6, and has discovered Hannah Montana.

I do not look forward to either the tweens or the teens. No way.
