This week has been pretty full of 'fear'.
I worried myself sick about meet-the-teacher night on Thursday. It went pretty smooth, amazingly, except for a few small 'blunders'. I now have 20, yes TWENTY children in my class. My largest day will consist of 17 kids being there, however that's a big number...and 20 is...in all honesty, terrifying. (There is the possiblity that I may have all the kids show up randomly during the week- and party days.) So far I have two kids that are 'nearly' potty trained and ALL of the parents said they have not put them in pull-ups..they are still rocking diapers and very few showed any interest in switching...
That's a lot to be responsible for, especially with 16(give or take each day) other children in the classroom. There's another child who has seizures too due to a kidney disease (I forget what her mother said it was called.) anyway, there's a problem with her kidneys that makes her body have a fever. THe fever can sky-rocket in a matter of minutes which can then cause her body to go into seizures. She said there is really no fore-shadowing on it you just have to continuously touch her and keep an eye on her.
With everything we have going on in the room- potty training, centers, activities and more, I'm trying to work out in my brain all these additional measures that are going to have to be taken in on a daily basis...and then there's my co-worker...
I already bring 'work' home with me, but I know if something happens, it's definately going to come home with me and be heavy on my shoulders.
I just have a lot to work out- especially making myself emotionally strong for the children, all the chlidren, in our class. and paitience.. I really need improvement in that area.
In other news, Nicko's cousin got married last night. It was a gorgeous ceremony outside (and HOT!). It was Vann's first wedding to attend, and though he had to be walked around while the ceremony commenced, he did so incrediably well at the reception. He was friendly with most everyone, danced while the music played and ran around the field with all the big kids. :) He was beautiful to watch and was a real hit with all the old ladies.. haha. One woman in her 60's asked if he had a girlfriend yet. Though I'm sure he had no idea what she was talking about he giggled at her and blew her a kiss.
He's such a charmer. (oh,no!) - it's a line from a KOL song. Couldn't resist. ;)
all those grey hairs. yikes. time for a dye job.
anyway, here's a few pictures of last night. I didn't get near as many as I wanted because I was constantly having to chase his butt down.... daddy was on "alcohol patrol".
