I Can't Believe My Eyes

You know when you just CAN'T believe your eyes? Remember seeing something that you just COULDN'T believe was real? Your first glimpse of Disneyland. The presents under the tree at Christmas morning. Seeing something for the first time.

One of my students had that feeling today and the way he explained it was too cute not to share.

At the beginning of each year, I ask each parent to bring in a laundry list of school supplies (that the district no longer supplies for teachers). One of those items I ask for is a pack of glue sticks. Six-year olds go through A LOT of glue, so I like to start off prepared. I empty out each package and put them in a huge Tupperware box. 

Today, one of my students asked for a new glue stick, and apparently, he'd never seen my glue stick stash before. I opened up the 'magical lid' from the glue stick box ... and his eyes nearly BUGGED out of his head.

As I pulled back the lid and his brain registered with what his eyes were seeing (A TON of glue stick in a huge box), he said, "Oh wow ... that makes my eyes flutter."

I kinda giggled because I thought it was such a great description for how that feels.

That is really cute! I think I would like to look in that box too! For some reason I am always looking for glue sticks too.

I love reading your blog. You are such a good story teller, always have been. I am almost always sure to get a good mental picture, and a good laugh.

I love you best friend and cuzzy!

Thanks for the amazing compliment on my writing. My book is an unconventional devotional for moms...irreverant and fun!

Lisa, can you just teach my kids forever? Seriously, I want you to be in their lives forever! You have a GIFT with kids. I love how you can pick out the great moments, and count them holy. I am a LISA FAN!

That's too cute! I love it when my kiddos say stuff like that.
