More cute kid stories

I need to put these somewhere because otherwise I'm afraid I'll forget them.

Story #1- A parent was telling me the other day that at the beginning of the year, her son was having trouble with my last name and calling me "Ms. Activities." I decided that's my new superhero name. I was telling another teacher that, and he overheard, and now he's still calling me that. I like it. This same kid has been going through a weird transition, and he came in today, took off his coat, then crawled directly into my lap and said, "I missed you today." I nearly ate his face, and I can't promise that I won't do that by the end of the year.

Story #2- A kid was "hiding" in the cubbies, and I told her she needed to come out, because it wasn't safe. She said, "Why, are you worried I'll hurt my head with these hookers?" I said, "You know, those HOOKS are dangerous."
"Oh yeah, hooks. What are hookers?"
"Hm. I'm not sure, sounds like something you'd use for fishing."

Story #3- Same kid was telling me a story about her dad's dancing, and then she said, "Oops, I can't finish that story. It's not appropriate." I was dying.

SOTD: More babies. First watch this Superbowl commercial because it's awesome. Then you can listen to Broken Wings by Mr. Mister.
