The widening eyes.
The eyebrow raise.
The look of absolute horror.
We're currently in our "persuasion unit", so we're talking a lot about commercials, marketing, and how media targets specific audiences. One word that we've been using a lot is "tweens" (kids aged 9ish-12ish). Now, I know that the word "tween" was derived from the word "between" because this group of people are in the stage BETWEEN being a kid and being a teenager. Apparently all of my kids didn't quite get that though. This caused one little boy's hand to shoot up and ask me, "Ms. Chandler, I understand the TEEN part of the word 'tween', but I don't get the WEENERS?"
I also get asked some pretty crazy personal questions.
Let's hope it's not the latter...
