The babies are steadily becoming worse and worse behaved. They are learning from the examples that the rest of the school is setting for them. I hate when I have to get mean and grouchy with them. I end up feeling terribly guilty on the way home. But, they are really wearing my patience thin. Today was Day 55 of school, so WHY do I STILL have to say, "NO TALKING DURING REST TIME!" "Keep your hands to yourself!" "Stop jumping on the stairs!" "No name calling!" and the two hundred other things I have to repeat all day? They had no trouble following the rules in the beginning of the year. What the hell happened? OK, I'm not going to complain anymore about my babies. At the end of the day, I love them all to pieces. And, after all, they're 5 years old! They're basically acting like they're supposed to, right? It's just that when you have almost 30 of them to deal with at once, it's a bit trying!
No more bitching about school tonight. Here's another of my favorite Christmas specials from my childhood. I think it's going to be on TV next Friday. Enjoy!
Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite special!
You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut-up. ---unknown
