Oh Monday… Today I took my class on a field trip to see the play Seussical… it was an hour long play, which I thought would be just the right amount of time… I fear I was wrong. When the play was over and we were walking to the bus, a sprout asked me, “What did you think of the play?”
Now I knew they weren’t too thrilled with it… it wasn’t bad, it was just a little abstract for kindergartners and by about thirty minutes in, I noticed the entire audience was twitching and bopping… oh yes, they had ants in their pants for sure. So back to the question, I wasn’t sure how to answer… I wanted to be honest, but I also wanted to be kind… so I went with, “Well, I’ve never seen anything like that before!”
He seemed pleased with my reply and I was proud I remained both honest and kind.
We ended up missing lunch and had to eat in the classroom… with no special today, I literally had zero time to myself, which really wasn’t as bad as I thought… I did sneak away to use the bathroom for two minutes, so I have to say, I did get two whole minutes to myself.
Oh yes, I had bus duty after school… it was the cherry on the sundae of my day! Happy Monday – tomorrow is Tuesday, bring it!
