Friday List Mania – The Sick Chronicles
Evidently, getting so worked up over all these firings has made me sick. Literally. I am typing to you from bed, surrounded by transcripts that need to be turned into coherent dissertation chapters and picture books that need reviewing for my website. I am not done with my educational ranting (Please!), but I do think in the interest of all of us feeling better, we should take a break. (Plus, I am unable to take any crack-like cold medication which would provide a much needed kick-in-the-pants to be once again, hilarious.) (And I like lists.)
So a list it is. Last night, I read over some of my posts filed under “I heart my kids” and here are some of the older and more wonderful ones that will hopefully bring a smile to your face today. I know my friends were often what kept me from running screaming from the building or poking myself in the eye or drowning myself in a sea of cocktails. (Wait…)
Speaking of poking myself in the eye… How about the time when Bubbles brought me a beautiful painting and made one of the worst weeks ever that much better?
Mini Friend might have been the cutest kindergartner on the face of the planet last year. With a fabulous Naughty Boy edge to his personality and a certain way with words, he always made me smile.
What about all the unexpected things our friends say that make our days so much better than a coffee-fueled race til 3?
Maybe you think this post is a cop out. Maybe you’re right. Either way, reading these made me feel better last night…not Nyquil better, but better and that has to be worth something.
Aw, Ms. Mimi, I hope you feel better soon.
My most recent hilarious moment didn't come from my kids, it came from another teacher! We had bus evacuations today (because it is the law- insert mini lesson about laws here-) and it was way above my preschoolers' heads. THEN! lo-and-behold! Their bus breaks down and can't take them home! In the midst of the crying 4-year olds, the teacher looks at me and says "the wheels on the bus didn't go 'round and 'round." 🙂 It made me smile while I stayed 45 after school contract hours to subdue the tears.
