WOW almost 24 hrs since I turned my computer on.. its been a long busy day...got a lot done and did a lot of waiting...but tomorrow I don't have to go anywhere...so happy about that!

But I am here and a little achey...hoping its because I didn't exercise last week (I have this week), and not because I am getting the crud that everyone else has passed around...DH has something tonight...

so they day started out with me buying a car from my FIL and ended with DH talking him out of selling it to me....he really shouldn't but if he sells it I am definitely buying , but I totally understand why he shouldn't sell it...

SO I feel good about the outcome but let down because I still need to find a car in the near future.

Okay this talking to myself is going pretty good...I guess but it would be far better to find out how my friends are doing...

So I'm completely confused about what day it is. The challenges of having a work week that started on Tuesday.

But things were much smoother at work today than they were yesterday. The kids seem to be calmed down a bit.

Of course, there was one child during nap time that I decided to leave alone. His mom doesn't want him sleeping because he stays up late if he does take a nap.

I decided to leave him alone today - just because there will be times where he won't have my full attention during nap and as much as I adore him, I needed a break.

He was NOT happy with me. Proved it by throwing small things - his pillow, rice that was on the floor.

If he would have wound up waking someone up by throwing rice, I'd have probably gone ballistic.

Hi Kathy. I figured since I didn't see you, I'd do my part and add 10 or so posts.

But what amazed me this week is that a child who has been with us since the beginning of the school year now knows my name. I walked into work yesterday and it was "MISS SARA! MISS SARA!!! I know your name!!!"

The child who I left alone at nap time today spent most of Tuesday trying to get us to call Mom to take him home.

He still calls me Teacher sometimes, but I tell him that I know he knows my name and ask that he please use it.

The child trying to get a trip home isn't new - he's been here since the beginning of the school year as well.

I think what threw him off is that Mom and Dad went on a trip to Florida and he and his brother were watched by both grandmas and a friend of the family over the 5 days Mom was gone.

Don't blame you.

I'm glad that I give my kids away at the end of the day some days.

He really missed his mom. MAJORLY. This was a few weeks ago.

Grandma #1 had him Wednesday night and dropped him off at daycare Thursday morning.

Grandma #2 picked him up Thursday night and kept him all day Friday.

On Saturday, the friend and her son came over to stay all day Saturday and then they all picked Mom up at the airport on Sunday.

That's a lot of change for a 4 year old.

They restructured homework for the elementary schools in my district.

The kids get their homework on Friday and it's due the next Friday.

Which is nice because they can get it all done - bang; but they're also at a disadvantage when they get to middle school or high school when they have homework every day.
