Let me tell you teacher's kids get the shaft!! After listening to kids' squeals, delights, antics, complaints in my classroom, when we get home I need 20 minutes to collect my thoughts, inhale, and embrace some quiet. That is not to be. Austin, in all his cuteness, after listening and following directions at school for 6 hours, is over-flowing with useless information from the day, the day before, and a few weeks earlier. "Mom, did you know that on House of Anubis, Ana is scared to go into the attic?" "Mom, did you know that Lance has 4 Bay Blades and I don't have any?" and so it continues straight for the next four hours. No pause. No mute. No filter. A continuous stream of questions, antics, and thoughts.
I get a big, fat NOTHING from Addy, and a lot of "asstractions" in completing her homework. Hence, the reason we've worked on this all day and we are still not finished with her writing project from Tuesday. No worries, it's due Monday!!
Andy, in all his scamming of deals, found these recordable postcards. Yet, another teacher task I worked on today. Both kids recorded a message for Sarah, and we'll glue their picture to the back. Cute idea!
