{For those of you that don't know - I work for a private school for students on the autism spectrum or that have similar learning styles.}
The students are always making me laugh, they have such personalities and just say it like it is. As a staff, we love sharing funny stories over lunch. Since I am not in the classroom as much this year I don't get as many great stories as I used to but since my belly has started growing I have a few. These stories are so much funnier for us at work because we know these students and their voices and personalities make the comments that much funnier but you should still get a kick out of them.

One morning I was leaving my office and one of our senior students (he is Grade 10) stopped me and we had this conversation:
B: Mrs. Black I don't mean to be rude but that dress makes you look pregnant.
{this is what I was wearing}
Me: Does it B? Well that's good since I am pregnant!
B: You are? 
Me: Yes I am but you may want to be careful saying that to others because you are right, that would have been rude if I wasn't pregnant.
B: Oh...ok but Mrs. Black my Mom said it's better to be married when you get pregnant.
Me: I am married B.
B: You are? I thought you were like 18 years old or somethin'?
Me: Close but nope a few years older than that - but thank you. :)

Then last week I was having an intake meeting in my office with a potential family when another senior class student walked into my office to get my paper recycling. 
He clearly got distracted by my belly and we had this conversation:
Z: Hey what's that in your shirt?
Me: You mean my stomach? It's a baby Z. Can we talk about this later though? I have guests in my office - see!?
Z: No I need to know. Is it new?
Me: Yes it's pretty new. 
Z: Yeah cause it's wasn't there on Friday.
Me: Ok thank you Z. We can talk about this later?!
Z: Yes I need to know. It's important you tell me how it got there since Friday.
Thankfully the family I was meeting with laughed and commented that it was a pretty impressive bump if it wasn't there Friday. :)

Then just this week one of our grade 3 students saw me in the washroom while we were washing our hands we had this conversation:
Z: Are you pregnant Mrs. Black?
Me: I am Z.
Z: How come just your belly is fat and nothing else?
Me: Well I am just growing the baby in my belly so nowhere else really needs to get fat...
Z: Oh no!! You just wait then cause when my Mom was pregnant EVERYTHING got fat. Even her hands and feet.

There we have it.
Happy Wednesday! :)

OMG so hilarious! I know the teachers at my son's school have many MANY of these types of conversations....the other day I asked my son if I could snuggle up with him in this big chair that they have in the classroom....he said "sorry Mom, it's not for chubby people".....then he saw I looked sad and said "just kidding" (I thought he was going to say "your not chubby") instead he said....A sits here with me all the time, and he's chubby....come on and join me... Love the Autistic mind...so plain and to the point!
