This is a blog written by a first grade teacher. I am sharing funny stories and insights given by my students and other children I am privileged to work with. I am sharing talk from "out of the mouth of babes."

At daycare this summer, I have several girls in my class. Early on in the summer, one of the little girls started playing and calling me "Mommy." She kept calling me that. So, I finally told her that if she was going to call me that, then I was going to change her name to a name I would call one of my daughters, if I would ever have one. So, she continued and has had a "name change." As the summer has gone by, I think I have "six daughters" now, which is more than I would want in reality, by the way (I've found out girls fight all the time with each other!) It is kind of sweet and funny on what comes "Out of the Mouth of Babes." Truthfully, I love hearing it, except when they come to me calling me, "Mommy", followed by fighting with their "sister." Just wanted to share with you! It is cute. I also find it funny because I think it annoys the boys when they call me "Mommy."
I am a born again Christian. That is the most important thing to know about me. Being a Christian is the greatest honor and privilege in a person's life (my life!). Being a Christian, I sought and followed God's will for my life. He gave me a love for children and led me to be a teacher. I'm not just a teacher, but I have the awesome and amazing privilege to be a Christian school teacher. I teach at the Christian school associated with my church in Richmond, Virginia. I am a first grade teacher, and I love it! I love working with and teaching "my children." But, I love most serving the Lord and teaching these kids that God has given me more about Him. What a blessing! Now, being a Christian isn't always easy. It is a constant learning experience. On my blogs, I share with you some of the great things I get to experience from working with children--- "Out of the Mouth of Babes." I am also showing how I am Learning to Lean on God's Arms. That is a personal "diary" of sorts of things the Lord is teaching me, as His child.
