Some Major Competition

Watch out, Mr. Ruby.

You have some MAJOR competition.

So yesterday, I was substituting at a different site for work. I hadn't met any of the kiddos. So...the other counselor was introducing me to the little cuties.

When we approached one of the first graders, this is how the conversation went:

Counselor: "Ben, this is 'Mrs. Ruby'. She's substituting today."

First Grader: "WHOA! She's GORGEOUS!"

Other First Grader: "Yeah, I KNOW. I was thinking the same thing!"

Me: "Why thank you." (Nervous chuckling and turning bright red with embarrassment ensued)

I'd be lying if I didn't say I wasn't flattered...even if they were first graders. :)

That is so cute! And kids that young can be so candid with their opinions (for better or worse!) that you know they genuinely meant it. What a sweet start to the day. :)

Aww! That's too cute :-)

That is too cute! And heck yeah, I would be flattered too if some little kids said I was gorgeous! Remember- little kids are honest and not afraid to say whatever is on their minds.
