Who Knew?

Today was one of those days. You know, the kind where someone looks at you funny and you'll either a) burst into tears, or b) rip their head off. I went back and forth between the two.

Apparently kids can sense that. Of course, it might have been because when someone said my name five times in the course of 2 seconds I snapped and said, "That's it! I'm changing my name. I will no longer answer to Mrs. L." And the little guy said, "Well, what will you answer to? I have to know what to call you when I need your help or want to give you a hug." How about that for a little wake up call that you're not really being nice teacher. Then my little darling walked up and gave me a hug and said, "I could tell you needed that. I'm a pretty good mime (yes, you read that correctly) reader."

Shoot. I thought I could fool them. I had to tell them that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and that's why I was a little grumpy today.

Later on I snapped at a little one and he said, "Ugh. Mrs. L, you sound just like my mom right now. Can you wake up on the right side of the bed tomorrow, please?"

Sure thing, little man. That's why I'm going to bed at 8:30 tonight.

I might even try sleeping on hubby's side of the bed. You know, so I can wake up on the right side.

It always amazed me. How can kids drive you crazy one minute and then say the sweetest darn thing in the world and put you in your place? If only grownups could grow up and be kids. Yes, you read that right. i wish we could

ugh, sorry for the crappy day. I give you huge credit for working with kids everyday. It takes a special person and a lot of patience. Glad they were there to make it a little better.
