I have now become a blogger...

Recently, whether because of boredom or curiosity (I'm not entirely sure), I have been looking at friends' blogs thinking that it could perhaps be fun to have one of my own.  So here it is: Rebecca's blog.

Today in first grade we had a dental hygienist come and speak to the entire first grade (brave woman)-surprisingly, my friends actually listened pretty well.  At the end of her presentation, she of course asked if anyone had any questions.  For those of you who don't know, this statement is seen in the eyes of a six-year-old as an opportunity to share stories.  Often we have to explain the difference between a story and a question and usually it is to no avail.  Anyway, nearly every hand shoots up and the kids start talking about their cavity stories, why they like the dentist, why they hate the dentist, the reason their little brother doesn't brush his teeth... and you get the point.  There were also some candid confessions as some offered up information like, "I didn't brush my teeth today."  My personal favorite, however; (in an extremely proud voice) "I have 7 silver teeth." Too bad when you are six you don't realize such things aren't good to brag about!

Finally a little boy (not in my class) actually asked a question: "Why does floss taste all minty?"  Needless to say, we had a good laugh at his random inquisitiveness.  All I can say is there is never a dull moment!
