Kids say the darndest things 

"Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theatre."
- Gail Goldwin

In my year 2 Maths class today-

Andy: "Hey look- I think that's your mother outside!"
Me: "Whose mother?"
Andy: "Dominic's!"
Dominic: "That's not my mother!"
Me: "That's not my mother either! My mother's not even in Melbourne!"
(Boys giggle.)
Andy: "Is she in CHINA?"
Me: "I'm not from China!"
Andy: "Are you Vietnamese?"
Me: "Nope!"
Dominic: "But you look Vietnamese!"
Me: "I am from Singapore."
Andy: "Singapore... oooooh! (pause) But you have an American accent."
Me: "Why do I have an American accent?"
Dominic: "I know, say 'answer'!"
Me: "En-sir."
Andy: "I say un-sir!"
Me: "En-sir, un-sir, I say them both."
Andy: "You have an American accent."
