"Oh, Buddy, you're not a Cotton-headed Ninny Muggins. You're just.....special"
I feel really "special" today. Special as in special needs, kind of special! Here's why: First of all, it hasn't been my day 'cause Super didn't get to school on time. I know, your thinking, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China, right? Well, when she's late, that means I'm late. Today, I'm pulling back into the garage, after taking her to school- as 2 of my preschoolers are waiting at the door to come in.
After my first class was over, and parents were picking up their kids, I went outside to sort of chase down a mom to talk to her. I was waving my arm trying to get her attention and a different mom thought I was trying to talk to her. While I was waving her off, I totally biffed it on the street. ( I didn't step down for the curb) It wasn't pretty. I still had my camera in my hand from taking pictures of the kids by my tree a few minutes earlier! I don't know what hit the ground first, my hand and camera, or my knees! Ouch! My knees hurt. They were bleeding in my jeans, I cut my hand, I tweaked both of my feet, and my camera has a big gash out of it! And probably the worst of my injuries, is my pride. How embarrassing!
I'm pretty sure at least 5 different parents saw me biff it! Plus, the mom who's attention I was trying to get... well, I had her attention. She was looking right at me trying to tell what in the world I wanted! One mom, Callie, was so sweet. I fell right in front of her van. She said, "while I was pregnant, we were following a realtor through a home, and I totally fell down the bottom 2 or 3 stairs." Her son was in the back of the van when I fell, and he asked what happened. When she told him I fell, his response was "like you do, Mom?" Thanks for helping me feel better Callie...more than once!!
Well, all I can say now is THANK GOODNESS IT'S MY FRIDAY!!!!!! It has been a LONG week. You teachers out there who read my blog...mainly Jenny, but sometimes Kimi reads too....... What is it with 5 seconds of snow and the affect it has on little students? What's your secret? How do you cope? What do you do when they are OUT OF CONTROL?
Well, that's all I have for this post! I think I need coke, chocolate or any other candy, and some serious rock band! (boo hoo! hours have passed since I began writing this post...never did play rockband... Now we are going to watch Hulk. It better be good!)
Now for today's song:
It should be "Slip Sliding Away" by Paul Simon, BUT darn playlist doesn't have it!! They are doing that a lot lately!
So, based on title alone: Falling Away with You by Muse. Great song!
