On the first day of school my first graders were anxious to show me the things that they had brought to school in their backpacks. One little girl came up with a small memo book with a picture of a kitten on the front and told me “Mrs. Byers, I have 2 of these in my backpack!” I responded that it was very nice but, since we wouldn’t be using them in school perhaps she could take it home and write in it or do some homework in it. With a huge smile, and as pleased as punch, she said, “It’s a diarrhea! (diary!)” I could not stop laughing!
