Monday's Random Musings

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

Random things I learned while substituting in a daycare last week...

--snack time comes twice a day. Counting carbs and calories is unnecessary.

--a lunch of beanie weenies is loved by all. (I mean, who knew?!)

--there can never be too much playtime.

--or too many restroom breaks.

--painting is fun. Even more fun when you "accidentally" paint your friends.

--saying, "I'm sorry" repairs all mistakes and "accidents." Really.

--little, portable cots are cozy when adorned with Dora, Bob the Builder, and Blue's Clues blankets and lovies.

--2 hour naps are NOT overrated.

--sucking your thumb makes it even more delightful.

--smiles are free.

--so is snot.

--hugs should be given often.

--butterflies are BEAUTIFUL.

--so are frogs, snakes, and lizards! (Again, who knew?)

--the letter "U" is so much fun when painted, buried in the sand, hooked together to make a chain, acted out, and read about.

--being a preschool teacher is an awesome gig. It really got me thinking... I'll keep you posted!

Preschool is awesome! I worked at a day care/ preshool on my college breaks and during the summers. It was so much fun... especially those 2 hour naps(for the kids, of course)!

Girl, more power to you. Anytime you feel the need to get a daycare "fix", you just holla. I'll lend you my two :).

You can say that again!

It would be nice of me to delete your blogger studder, but I chose to make fun of it instead.

Sounds like you had a ball. I love going to kindy for a little bit with Lion.
But full time as a teacher person... Oooo no. cleaning up my kids when they get covered in poop is one thing, cleaning up other peoples poop covered kids is not my calling at all! I also don't think they clasify threatening to sic the "garage monsters" on the kids a legit way to break up a fight...

It's all about the butterflies and snot isn't it? ;o)

Boy Mom said...

I just love preschool age little ones. So sweet!

LOL - Snot is free.

It's just too bad it's not sellable.
