Out of the mouth of babes….

Ohhhh goodness!! These kids kill me with the funny things they say! Sometimes they unknowingly SLAM me, but I take it all in stride because they genuinely don’t mean any harm. And it usually is pretty funny.

One day this week I left my makeup in Jonathan’s truck and rocked a make-up free face to work. One little girl said,”Mrs. Butler, are you sick?? You look like you don’t feel good!”

Uhhh, I’ll take that over the little boy that said “Mrs. Butler, do you have a rash on your face?” Why yes, I do. It’s called adult acne and it is SO much fun. Thanks for noticing!

Another student told me on Wednesday night after church that I look really different and wanted to know if I was pregnant. She further explained it’s not because I look fat, because I’m skinny, but maybe my abs are just getting bigger. Yea, that must be it!!

Oh, and you should hear how tore up they are over the fact that I got a spray tan last night. (I’m also not wearing mascara today, so that could be it too). I have heard “You look really different today, Mrs. Butler!” at least ten times. One kid even asked if I got a hair cut…..??? Just when I thought my hair was looking longer than ever!!

Most of them can’t place what is different, they just notice that something isn’t the same. Except Carl. Carl said “Did you get a tan? Because you looked REALLY pale yesterday and you don’t look so pale today.”

Speaking of looking differently….Big Jon has been having a little bit of fun with the Fatify app. Kinda scary, but had me CRACKING up last night!!! I’m so thankful for a husband who makes me laugh!!!

OMG I'm a teacher too (elementary school art) and any day that I don't wear makeup (even though I only wear mascara & some light foundation on a daily basis)I get the "are you sick???" "you look different" "are you ok?!" comments all day long!! So glad to know its not just me haha.

That is hilarious. I love all the comments, I get some great ones too. The best was once I was looking at my face closely in the mirror (at my adult acne!)and one of our students came in and said "Don't worry Mrs. Black, it's called puberty".
Right!!! Thanks! :)
Happy weekend!

Days I don't wear make up most of my co workers say "you look really tired" Bahaha code for "you look like shi^ without make up on!" hahaha

My students think I look different when I wear my hair pulled back/pony tail...which I NEVER wear haha! :)

I actually think you look good without make-up!! Maybe thats because I hardy wear any myself, but I don't see any of the skin blemishes you were talking about. Plus just a good coat (or two) of mascara and lip gloss can really brighten your face without all the other cover ups.

Well lady, you look awesome! I don't think you could look ugly if you tried. You look gorgeous as always! You can rock either look and look great! You are just a natural bombshell. I wish I looked that good without makeup. Heck, I wish I looked that good with makeup! :)

I've been working with kiddos for a long time in various counseling roles. in 2006 I had chemo and lost all of my hair, my wig was sooo itchy that I usually just wore a hat and one girl said "Ms. Q you are much prettier without hair". Huh?

Ha, ha. That's great!! My hubby and I are both 28 years old, and we drive a church van. One of the kids told Nate that he looked like he was 45 years old. I asked the boy how old he thought I was, and he replied, "18!" LOL!!

My five-year-old daughter and I were in a dressing room and she was trying on a pair of jeans when she simply stated, "Mom, the tops of my legs are chunky... just like yours!" Not like she was embarassed or saw anything wrong with it; she was just sayin' it like she saw it. Totally made me laugh!:)

After I came back from having Beau one of the kids said... "I miss you with the big belly. You're like a skinny unhappy Santa. You used to be so fat and jolly." Ummmm... thanks! THAT helps the matter!
