Today was quite the day. I had to be at school 30 minutes sooner than usual. I had to present to staff. I had a few moments to breathe before I had to pick up my kids.
My kids were on fire when I picked them up from the gym. Not on fire in a good way. It’s never a good thing when the morning supervisor wishes you a hearty GOOD LUCK in her most sarcastic voice as you pass her.
Everything took ten times longer than it should have taken. Everybody needed to talk at once. The math lesson was completely ridiculous. We lined up and ran a lap. We drank water. Tattletale on tattletale happened. I chucked it and we went to recess.
Life was somewhat better when we returned. Or so I thought.
We headed to lunch.
Lunch helped us. We read aloud. We went to centers. We are transitioning to the fluency part of our day when a girl randomly looks at me and says:
‘Mrs. Hays, what’s that thing you are wearing called?’
‘Uh. Yeah. I like it.’
Thanks. And the day went from there. #justsayin’
