most days

most days i have lots of patience of the kiddos in my class,
most days i can laugh about what happens,
most days i can take a moment and collect my thoughts,
most days i love my job

today for the most part i loved my job

but there were
when a child stuck their tongue out at me

just to be safe

the other day i had somewhere i had to be after school so the presidents went to a friends house.
Gus had to ride the bus with my friends son, as we were talking about it that morning and working out details she said to me
"mom, i may have to hold his hand, so no one runs me over"

i told her " you won't need to do that no one will run you over"

her response, "mom, it's not a boyfriend girlfriend thing, it's just to be safe"

silly Gus

teaching the first day of kindergarten is a lot like child birth, if you could remember how painful it really is you'd never do it again

i got beat up

it's true, well kinda
last night about 2:00 am I was walking through a school parking lot and passes four teenage boys, all standing outside their car, i kept walking though i had a nagging feeling something bad was going to happen, I knew these boys by the way i've taught two of them and the other two i've taught their little sisters. so i got to my car and they started to yell my name, then ran at me.
They were yelling, swinging a bat, one of them had a crowbar. I tried to get in my car and shut the door but they got to me too fast, i don't remember the details of the fight, other then i text 911, which was weird, then i called 911, they kept beating me. i was fighting back but who am i kidding i'm no match for four teenage boys ( i learned that when i came home from college and my little brother picked me up and carried me in the house.)
anyhow long story short we ended up at the police station, 3 of the boys got away one did not and i was too frazzled to remember the others names. I felt fine until I looked in the mirror and saw my MESSED-UP face, i also had several bruises all over, my left foot was the worst, i can't believe i could walk with it as bad as it was.
anyhow, by 4am i was whole again other then the undaunting thought of four teenage boys actually beating me up in a school parking lot. saddest part- i don't even have any bruises to prove my story
