Student A: Did you know that you have this thing in your brain called an umbilical cord?
Student B [rolling eyes, like it was obvious]: Yes, I know.
Me: Huh? Um, that's the thing that connects mamas and babies before they are born. It was where your belly button is now.
Student A [irritated]: No. Not that umbilical cord Mrs. Elliott. The other one. The one in your brain. You know, it's the one that connects your brain to your imagination.
Oh. My. Goodness. Sometimes I think my heart will burst with my love for children.
Thanks for sharing them with me!
