I Need a Sign

I think I'm going to have a shirt made that I can wear to the junior high I substitute teach at. It will read "Yes, I'm pregnant. I'm due in July. It's a girl. I'm not naming it after you."
I have at least three or four students every period ask me this. Even for me to name my child after them. Crazy self-absorbed middle schoolers, I love them.

That's all.


  1. I had two students, not close to my top fave students, who asked me if I would name my kids after them and I was like 1. I don't like you and 2. I'm not even pregnant! (I didn't tell them number one, but I sure did think it!).

  2. Funny. When I was student teaching no one asked if I would name my kid after them. BUT, I had four of my students tell me before my ultrasound day that they thought I was having twins because I was "pretty big for just 5 months."
