Reality: daily life

It's been a ride, this week has--- fatigue,  not enough outdoor time, and general crankiness (hmm....for children and adults!).

In Kindergarten and First Grade....

Me   "Um, you guys? Would you please tell the aliens who kidnapped you in the middle of the night and sent me these (sleepy-tops, silly beans, grumpy-heads...) instead, to send me back my kids?"

Kids  giggle giggle giggle....

or, just recently:  "Oh Ms N, you know, we just got up on the wrong side of the bed."

Me   "Uh, yeah, I can see that."

Kids  "What does that mean, exactly, anyway?"
