Perils of Teaching

It's been a busy week with the four-year-olds at preschool.  I firmly believe the full moon has something to do with it.  But the life of a teacher is never dull...  I'll give it that.

Earlier this week I got together with some of my friends from my previous school and we were reminiscing about some of our finer moments there.  

One of the classics remains the time little Ivan decided he had to pee during pick-up time outside.  In true five-year-old fashion, he dropped his drawers and began peeing on a tree.  Not wanting to make a big deal out of it, our aide approached him to tell him quietly that it's not proper etiquette to pee in public, thank you very much.

Yeah, you know what's coming....

Little Ivan turned around at the sound of her voice... and peed all over her. 

Thank god it wasn't my turn to do pick-up duty!  Some days you just get lucky!

Loverly. Just loverly.

Poor woman. But dang now we get to laugh about it.

And I did. Laugh. Ha!

Jayne Martin said...

Bet she never made that mistake again.

Me-Me King said...

It was one of those "wish you had your video camera moments", huh?

He, hee, pee, pee.

otin said...

I peed on my shoes one time at a New Years party! That was not fun. lol

y brother called once, many years ago, wanting to take the whole family boating.

As his boating goes, it's a series of short jaunts with many stops for shore excurisions. We stopped at a riverside park, where the kids played on the swings and such.
My son, all of two years old, decided he needed to pee - Down with the drawers and peeing he went.

My brothers wife said, "Look at your son. He's crude, just like you!!"
I reminded her that boys do things like that and, at least, he wasn't still using diapers like her daughter of the same age..... we were never invited to go boating again :-)

Well, it's like I always say: I'd rather be pissed off than pissed on!

JennyMac said...

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. I only got peed on ONCE when MiniMac joined our lives. I shall not like to meet Ivan. LOL.

Nanodance said...

A classic!

ReformingGeek said...

That's funny.

I'm glad he didn't need to do #2. She might have been the butt of the joke. ;-)

I love Mac's story.

rxBambi said...

that is too funny! When my nephews are over here swimming I'd rather have them pee on a tree than keep running in and out of the house with their wet suits on! I just tell them not to pee in the pool!!

Brian Miller said...

lol. had to train my boys to pee outside when we were in the middle of nowhere on a trip/ initially they refused and then we could not get them to stop.

Quirky: And the "unfortunately damp" woman laughs louder than any of us!

Jayne: No, but when you're working with little ones, there are lots of other mistakes just waiting to happen.

Me-Me: Hee Hee Pee Pee is right!

Otin: Uh, I'm not sure you should be admitting that, Otie!

Mac: That's just how my mom talks about me... I'm the crude one of the family. (But I am potty trained.)

Dufus: Piss off is definitely better than pissed on... although being pissed on does elicit more laughter.

JennyMac: I'm still in close contact with Ivan's family... and they laugh about it as much as anyone else.

Ms. Stinglash: Ah, that was a great day, wasn't it?

Reffie: I'm the butt of alot of jokes... which is why I don't get to close to Ivan.

Bambi: I wish I could just pee on a tree. It would be so much easier than trying to get a wet bathing suit off and on.

Brian: As they say, be careful what you teach your children.

Janice said...

Teachers have many funny stories to tell.

jules said...

Oh dear. Totally cute though. Love the name of your blog too!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Yikes! I guess I'll stick with computers ...

Donna said...

Is that my grandson? Tell him he can't play his DS. LOL!

Donna said...

LMAO!! Getting peed on by a 5 yr.old! That would of been a kodak moment. LMAO! Are you sure that was'nt my grandson?LOL!

CatLadyLarew said...

Janice: That's what keeps us going back every day!

Jules: Thanks for stopping by!

Dennis the Vizsla: At least it would be appropriate for your children to use a tree.

Donna: I don't think it's your grandson, but is does makes you proud, doesn't it.

Scott Free said...

Heh heh I do that all the time...

subby said...

Better th' tree than in his trousers...er...and been trying to get hold of you CLL but no email in your profile. Something wrong with one or more of your blog widgets!!

Secretia said...

When they turn into men they still love to pee outside, trees or not.

CatLadyLarew said...

Scotty: Stop that! (Or they'll never let you graduate!)

Subby: No trees near the sub, eh?

Secretia: Oh, those boys!

The Old Silly said...

Ha! Guess she'll THINK before she pulls that little pee-stopper again!

subby said...

No trees but there was this whale one time...er...more later on that!!

Linda Medrano said...

My dog Harry does exactly the same thing. Damn!

CatLadyLarew said...

Marvin: Yeah, no more of that polite quiet approach. From now on it's gonna be screaming across the playground!

Subby: Can't wait to hear more!

Linda: Dogs, kids... they all kinda work the same way, don't they?

gayle said...

I'm just waiting for my grandson to do that!! I guess you know about shoe laces that are wet:)

Corrie Howe said...

I don't understand little boys. I never trained, nor encouraged or even allowed this, but I caught my 16 year old peeing at the top of our driveway, about 100 feet from the house with a bathroom.
