So one of my first graders has been calling me mommy for 2 weeks. First she did it on accident, then she started joking about it, then she actually said, “Mommy, I mean Miss Chavez.” I kept correcting her, but she just kept doing it and I got tired of telling her to stop.
Today I told the whole class its going to be my last week in first grade. I looked over at her and her face grew red with a blank stare. I asked her what was wrong and she said, “My mommy’s leaving.”
