Monday was a long day. A very long day.
I got to work at 6 am and left a little after 6 pm.
I helped out in the classroom and realized that I'm not cut out for that anymore.
Seriously, the hardest part of my day was keeping up with the kids' energy level at the end of the day. I wanted to curl up in the book corner for a short nap but, they were still going strong.
So energetic and chatty.
I asked if they would give me a little energy but, they wouldn't. That's ok though because we had some great conversations.
For example, one little girl told me that her and her dad share a brain. He uses it in the morning and she uses it in the afternoon.
Another little girl told me that she weighed 45 pounds. I told that I did too. She thought it was so cool that we were the same! If only she knew that I weighed 45 + a couple more!
I also had a "why?" conversation with a two year old. If you have kids you know what I'm talking about. She asked, "what's that?" I said, "a bird feeder" She said, "why" I said, "because the birds eat from it", she said, "why?" I said because they need someplace to eat when they're hungry" she said, "why?" Yes, this went on for a while. I didn't mind. I think as a two year old she appreciated my willingness to explain. But, don't be me wrong - eventually I answered with "because that's just the way it is."
Now to the lazy part of my day.
I got home.
I was tired.
We were going to have leftover chili but, when I got to the cupboard there weren't any clean bowls. So I had a banana.
Yes, I'm adult and I ate a banana for supper because I didn't want to wash a bowl.
I'll own it.
It was just one of those days.
