Abigail is a talker.  She talks all the time and several of her girl friends in kindergarten are the same way.  Her teacher has fussed at her many times and she has been in time out, had notes sent home and been moved all around the classroom.  She just can’t help herself.  Now, believe it or not, I am not a talker.  I typically don’t say a lot to people face to face.  It’s just not me.  So…that leaves Emily as a talker.  I figure talking of Abigail’s caliber must be genetic and she must have gotten it from Emily’s line!

She didn’t understand why it was such a big deal whether she talked during a test or when the teacher was teaching.  “I was done with the test” or “I already knew that stuff” was the usual response we got.  We finally told her that it might be like cheating…her teacher might think she is telling someone else the answer or that she was getting the asnwer from someone else.

I guess that the cheating talk must have sunken in a little.  This Sunday, Abigail came home from church with this paper.  I am not sure what else to say!

  1. Abigail is so funny. When we get onto her about it, she says (VERY dramatically) “But I just CAN’T stop talking!!!”

  2. I must confess that your line also has talkers. When I was in fifth grade I had to stand with my nose in a ring at the blackboard for talking during class and in 8th grade the teacher broke a ruler on my backside for talking. Oh well life is too short not to talk to one another.

  3. Kris – it is insane sometimes!

    Em – I know it is from you!

    Capri Kel – It’s weird I guess as I like the written word…but talking to people…not so much

    YD – did you use all your words?

    Taylor & Farm mom – she is adorable!

    Garret – I hope mine learned a lesson!
