Today the children were a little far from ordinary. One child came into school upset over hearing a fight between his parents. At four years old, he couldn't get it off his mind. He could only focus for ten minutes at a time. In between the moments of focus was tortures of pencils and pen throwing, everything being dumped off my desk including papers sent flying. The child even climbed on the tables and tried to dump over the puppet theater.
Other children were on sugar highs. One child told me that he had five treats in his lunch box today. This child normally is very loud. He only has a loud button and shouting is his regular indoor voice. Today he was so loud that other children around him covered their ears when he laughed or cracked a joke. Days like that make me wonder if the parents dislike me.
I think I'm going to go hide under the covers with the puppies and hope that tomorrow's day is better. It has to be, right?? RIGHT??? Come on... you can try to make me feel better!
