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!
