I asked one of my students today: "Did you wear your smarty pants today?"
He replied, "no."
As the test progressed I said, "You did wear your smarty pants!"
The reply: "No, I think my mom may have put them in my backpack."

Not my student

So over the weekend I attended a birthday party for a one year old... there was only one other child in attendance. "A" is a three year old twin who got to spend some quality alone with mom time at the party. I had last seen A when he was in utero so I was curious about him. I introduced myself and asked him how old he was. A replied, "I am three." Pause... Pause... "Mom? Am I three?" "Yes, dear. You are three years old," replied mom.
That made my whole day!

In baseball you need some things. A small bat; a bat; sacks.

Oh, sacks? Really??

"Balls" has two meanings. One of them is inappropriate.

Today a first grader said that he wanted a Woody for Christmas... that's because he lost his Buzz.
