Ruby the rich girl

I teach in one of the wealthiest parts of the country.  Many of my students come from very well-off families.  Ruby, the spunk child of my preschool class (and my very favorite), has come into class sporting a few different Burberry coats and super fancy shoes.  Last week, she asked me an interesting question.

"Mmm.  Lindsay Teacher.  You have money?"
"Uh... Yes.  I have some money."
"Mmm.  You have little money or... much money?"
"Uh...  I have... some money.  SLP gives me money because I teach."
"Hmm.  ...I think...  I will give you money."
"Ahh, thank you, Ruby, that is very sweet, but it's okay.  You don't have to give me money."


  1. Hahaha!

    Very cute.

    I wouldn't take the money, but I wouldn't mind a few tiny Burberry hand-me-downs :)

  2. Aw, that is so cute! She's adorable!!
