  2. So funny! "You have the freedom to use a thinking bubble, too"! Hahaha. My son is in first grade and his teacher messaged me the other day that my son was telling a friend that he did NOT want to be a teacher when he grows up. She asked him why and he responded "because I wouldn't want to be in charge all of these crazy kids."
