These Kids Just Realized Their Moms Were Dropping Them Off And It’s The Most Heartbreaking / Cutest Thing Ever

When I got dropped off at school on my first day of preschool, I threw myself to the floor, started yelling, crying and wouldn’t let go of my mom’s legs when she was trying to leave. Yup, I threw major fits. And I know I’m not the only one. Check out how other pre-schoolers are reacting on their first day of school once they find out that their moms can’t stay with them for the day…

Remember this kid that went viral two years ago?

On his first day of preschool, Andrew Macias, was interviewed and asked if he was going to miss his mom. He responded, “no,” and nervously laughed about it. But then that laugh immediately turned into a cry as he realized that he actually was going to miss his mom.

Well, kids are having similar reactions to their first day of school this year.


Pobrecita.

And teachers are struggling trying to pretend everything is okay.

Just smile and nod, smile and nod.

Some pre-schoolers already know that crying won’t solve anything.

She already knows what’s up.

While other pre-schoolers are there to offer moral support throughout these hard times.

Looks like this little girl is going to become her pre-school BFF.

Perhaps some of these kids woke up and hopped into the car thinking they were on their way to Disneyland.

His face expression changed really quick.

Because their smiles quickly turned upside down when they realized they were on their way to learn and be educated… ?

This kid is so mad, his eyebrows are about to fall off.

You can tell how excited they are about having to be at school five days a week, from 9 to 3. ☺️

He’s like, “Noooo mamá porque me haces estooooooo.” Same, kid. Same.

These kids couldn’t be more happy about having to play together and share the toys.

It looks like this little girl isn’t a huge fan of “sharing is caring.”

Ultimately, no matter how hard these preschoolers try to handle their emotions and keep it together on their first day of school…

Being an adult has me like…

This is me.

Truth is, it feels like the end of the world as soon as they see their mommy leave.

This was soooo me on my first day of school. But hey, who wouldn’t miss being at home all day with their mom instead of being stuck at school (or work) with kids you don’t know?

This Teacher Received A Nissan Pickup Truck Decked Out As A Mobile Classroom

Like students around the world, kids in Mexico have been forced to take school online or tune into programming on public TV in order to learn. But that’s just the kids who are lucky enough to have access to Internet or a TV. Many students live in rural areas and lack the adequate resources to continue their studies amid the global pandemic.

But thankfully, there are many good samaritans out there (aka compassionate teachers) who have invented their own ways to bring the classroom to kids wherever they are.

A Mexican teacher was gifted a decked out pickup truck by Nissan.

Since schools were forced to close last year in April, Aguascalientes special education teacher Nallely Esparza Flores, has been driving four hours a day to educate students one-on-one at their homes from her truck bed, outfitted with a small table and chairs.

News of her project spread across social media, eventually reaching the corporate offices of Nissan México. This week, the company surprised Esparza with the gift of a new pickup truck specially outfitted with a small open-air mobile classroom built into the truck’s bed.

“Today I feel like my labors and the help that we give each day to children and their families is unstoppable,” she said on Twitter Wednesday, sharing photos of her new vehicle. “My students no longer have to take classes in the full heat of the sun,” she said.

Nissan representatives said they decided to give Esparza the adapted NP300 model, 4-cylinder truck after hearing her story because she was “an example of perseverance and empathy.”

“When we learned about the incredible work of this teacher, we got together to discuss in what way we could contribute to this noble work,” said Armando Ávila, a vice president of manufacturing.

The mobile classroom is pretty legit and will allow Esparza to continue her good deed.

The decked out Nissan pickup truck has three walls (the other is a retractable sheeting) and a ceiling made with translucent panels to protect teacher and student from the elements while letting in natural light.

It also has retractable steps for easy access to the classroom, electrical connections, a whiteboard and an easily disinfected acrylic table and benches that are foldable into the wall to provide space. The table also has a built-in plexiglass barrier to allow social distancing.

Access to education in Mexico is highly inequitable.

Esparza, like many teachers across the country, found that not all distance learning was equal. Many of her students in Cavillo were from poor families without internet access. So she used social media networks to keep in touch with such students via cell phones, but even that was not necessarily an available option for all — and not ideal. Finally, she decided to solve the problem by hitting the road in her pickup truck.

According to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), only 58% of students in Mexico had a home computer – the lowest percentage among all OECD countries. And only about one third (32%) of the school computers in rural schools in Mexico were connected to
the Internet, compared to more than 90% for schools located in urban areas.

A 5-Year-Old Latino Boy Stole His Parents Car And Told The Police Who Pulled Him Over He Was Buying A Lamborghini

A 5-Year-Old Latino Boy Stole His Parents Car And Told The Police Who Pulled Him Over He Was Buying A Lamborghini

Talk about being resourceful.

In Utah, a 5-year-old boy with a whopping $3 in his pocket took a joy ride in his parents’ car with plans to drive to California. When police pulled him over, he told officers that he wanted to buy a Lamborghini. This was, apparently, after his mother refused to take him to buy the luxury car when he asked her to buy him one.

According to reports, a trooper saw the SUV (driven by the boy) weaving on Interstate 15 at 30 mph.

In the dash-camera footage of the encounter, Trooper Rick Morgan addressed the kid saying “How old are you? You’re 5 years old?… Wow … Where did you learn to drive a car?”

Speaking to KSL-TV, Morgan said that when he pulled the kid over, he had to help him get the SUV into park mode. “He was sitting on the front edge of the seat so that he could reach the brake pedal to keep the car stopped while I was standing there,” Morgan explained.

After being pulled over, the child (identified as Adrian Zamarripa) said that all he wanted to do was drive to California to buy a Lamborghini for himself. Remember that part about the $3 in his pocket?

Right.

According to Morgan, no one was hurt by Zamarripa.

Zamarripa wasn’t able to buy the car, which at a new rate is worth $200,000 but he has been able to drive around the block in them since.

A post shared by RD (@wiresonly) on

Lamborghini owner Jeremy Neves heard Zamarripa’s story and decided to take him out on a little spin of his own. When news of Neves offer went viral, it wasn’t long before a celebrity luxury car dealer offered to fly him out to California.

According to a report by TMZ, RD Whittington, who is the owner of the brand Wires Only, flew Zamarripa and his family to Los Angels. While at the dealership he was able to sit in Lamborghini, a Ferrari, and a Hummer. The dealership also organized it so that Zamarripa was able to FaceTime with Shaq and Lil Pump and had the chance to meet Jamie Foxx in person.

In response to criticism that their kind gestures might only cause other kids to seek out similar rewards by copying Zamarripa’s behavior, Neves explained “I’m absolutely inspired by the principles that he displayed of success ― knowing what he wants, going after it… Absolutely, I’m not encouraging kids to go out and take their parents’ car, and do anything else that’s illegal. I’m not advocating that at all.”

Of course, Zamarripa, has received quite a bit of positive attention for his actions, this story is not without its consequences. According to CNN, the boy’s parents are punishing him for stealing their car. Fortunately for them, the Weber County District Attorney won’t be pushing to charge his parents with neglect charges.
