WHEWIE! This rough, tough school year is nearly over!
Two more days with students. Two "post-planning" days next week, and then I'm free for some Mama/Emma time, family vacation, playdates, and fun in the sun. WHHHHOPPEE! I am drained.... But leave you with the many Emmaisms I've saved on my Blackberry memo pad the past few months.


2/18/11 On Equality:
"Rosa Parks helped make SILVER rights for the United States!"

2/20/11 On spilling hot chocolate:
"It's a good thing to spill on black because black is a big, powerful color!"

3/1/11 On clothing tags:
"I couldn't reach my butt hookers." (I think she was talking about belt loops?? Not sure.)

3/2/11 On Snuggling with Mommy:
"I always love to cuddle with you. It's like I wish you were my mom, my sister, AND my cousin!"

3/10/11 On asking our cat to move out of her way:
"Abby, please move! I said, M-O-V, move!"

4/20/11 On puppies and gender:

"I knew the one I was holding was a girl because it didn't have a penis, a wiener, or nuts. HEY! How come boys have so many names for their stuff?"

5/13/11 On exhaustion:

"I'm so tired I could sleep on gravel!"

5/16/11 Philosophy:
"Do you hold your spoon to eat applesauce the same way you hold a pencil? I do usually. But sometimes I don't."

5/17/11 On Restroom Needs while on a Roadtrip:
"I have to go SO bad! I need a pee-hole right now!"

5/21/11 On Poetry:
"Wanna hear something funny I made up? The 3 little mice in a bucket full of ice." (Should I be worried about this?)

5/28/11 On Numbers:
"Don't 2 and 5 look good together? It's 'cause 2 is an upside-down 5!"

5/30/11 Misunderstood Music Lyrics: (Singing along with "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar)
"You're a heartbreaker. String maker. Team Jacob, don't you mess around with me." (Insert DH and I ROFL at this one!) :)

6/5/11 On Transportation:
"That's one sick motorcycle!" (When/where did my kid learn that "sick" can mean "sweet?" LOL.)

Awwwww. I missed the Emmaisms. Glad the school year is over for you. They have made so many changes at my school I actually dread going back next year. Oh well! Thank heavens I have a job!

Oh my goodness she is funny! LOVE all of them. Especially the why do boys have so many names for their stuff - it's so true! Such a sweet and hysterical girl you have. Yeah for summer and almost being done with school - I hope you have a great summer!

Okay, I have never read your shared Emmaisms....but that girl is a star there!

I love the poem...three mice in a bucket of what? Oh honey, no!

I love it. I hope you are all set for a gala time!

P.S. You seem to be waiting as desperately for the school year to end as the students themselves do! :-)

My favorites are butt hookers and men having so many names for their parts.

Too funny! Can't wait to see her in person soon and hear more Emmaisms live!! And, Mommy, don't think Emma hasn't noticed you with your team Jacob/team Edward! ;) I need to go... I think I hear the chicken of the crock. :)
