calling me mom

It is so funny how kids get so comfortable with their teachers that they start to call you mom.

I really took notice to this yesterday when I had 1st,2nd and 3rd grade

2 children in 1st called me Mommy
1 child in 2nd
and 2 in 3rd called me mom

They get so embarrassed when this happens....I try not to give it any attention and just smile and ask them "what can I do to help you?"

They are so cute!

That has happened to me a lot over the years. Just the other day a 4 year old said, "Grandma, Mommy, uh... Mrs. Wendy!" and even the little ones find it embarrassing.
