Back In The Swing of Things

It's been awhile since I've last written anything. School is back in session and I am as busy as ever. 24 new little reasons for me to stay busy. Even my housework is falling behind because all I want to do when I get home is veg out. However, the cutest little boy (not mine) made me laugh the other day and remember why I do this job. Here is the story:

It was during my break when a fellow teacher asked me to assist two of her kindergartners to the nurse. Apparently one of them did not know where the nurse was and the other was his escort. Seeing that only one had the problem I double checked that the other knew how to return to his room.

I started up a conversation with the other child as we meandered up to the nurses office. He told me he loved his teacher and was liking school. When we arrived at the nurse's office we let the nurse know of his situation (he had an accident in his pants). Much to this kindergartners surprise, the nurse replied that she had something he could change into. This cute little kindergartner then exclaimed, "You mean you have extras!"

Behind my hand I snickered. It was so adorable. It takes you back to when you start something new and are surprised at how well a situation can be taken care of. Next I proceeded to take him back to the classroom. He was so happy and it was like it had never happened. By the way he also proceeded to show me everything that was red because he learned about it in class earlier that day.

I am happy to be back in the swing of things.
