I was home sick yesterday with a nasty sinus infection, cold, and fever. Needless to say, with my luck lately, I was still sick as a dog when I got back to school today. My kids could see it the minute they looked at me because kids are incredibly observant of things you wish they wouldn’t notice. Well…
Student: Miss L., your voice is different.
Me: I know it’s a little weird, but I’m not feeling well.
Student: Are you going through puberty?
Me: No. Definitely not.
::half an hour later::
Same Student: Miss L., seriously, your voice is really deep today and it’s cracking and changing. Are you sure you’re not going through puberty?
Me: Sweetie, I’m 32. And female. Thank you, but yes I’m sure.
Ah, the joys of working with children.
