Did you all get that policeman reference??? LOLOLOL... Okay, so now that I have entertained myself with a little poor humor... I have truly been busy, (Nicole, wink, wink) and I am sorry I haven't updated. Now, just so you all know how important you are, I am fighting the weariness that comes from a day of Valentine Festivities with a class full of 4 year olds just to type this... forgive any random, non-coherent thoughts... Oh, wait, that is how all my posts sound. Well, okay to I just have a reason for the randomness today...
Yes, I went to help at Lincoln's class Valentine's Party... the passing out of cards was especially painful... I mean, time consuming, er...I meant to say, "Bless their hearts, those dear little children didn't know who to give those cards to." (In the south you can say almost anything if you begin it with the phrase "bless their heart")
Soooo... did you know that only a small percentage of four year olds can recognize other children's names, and then properly place a Valentine in that child's box??? Let me explain... Here is Lincoln. He has a valentine for "Suzy-Q"... only there are 3 other kids whose names start with "S" like Suzy-Q, so there is no telling who gets which "S" valentine... very confusing stuff for a 4 year old. And for the record, there are 5 names that start with "A" in his class... ugh! One poor kid, did NOT get the whole put it in the box concept. I would tell him who the Valentine was for, and he would walk over and hand it to the child. I finally gave up after the 8th explanation and started putting them in boxes when he wasn't looking. SO, after reading that are you shocked to know I used to teach Pre-K???? Yep, its true...
But, the kiddos had a blast decorating cupcakes and eating way too much sugar, so it was worth it. OK, and now Lincoln just got done opening all these Valentine's and declared "All the kids in my class are so kind to give me these. I just love all of them."
Too late to delete all that whining I did... It would take me forever to retype something else too.
And while we are on the subject of typing...
No DAWN... I haven't forgotten that you tagged me... I just have to work up to that much finger usage... LOL. (I think she tagged me just to laugh at how long it would take to get it done... LOL) (Just kidding Dawn!! :) )
Ok, so back to typing...
