My Day in Numbers (so far)

2:  number of times I hit snooze on the alarm clock.

5: number of pancake puffs each GROWING boy ate.

2: backpacks packed and ready to go to school for the first day.

5,478: number of deep breaths I had to take before 14 three year olds bounced into my room.

63:  number of times I asked those wiggly three year olds to sit down.  🙂

14: number of students in my class that I counted continuosly.

100+: number of smiles I saw from the wiggly three year olds.

14: Good-byes I said to the sweet, wiggly three year olds.

2: Minutes it took to get home from school.

3: number of minutes it took for Frack to fall asleep for his nap.

98:  minutes it took for Frick to fall asleep for nap (this includes several “I have to pee!” shrieks and “I’m hungry” moans).


I shall end this post (before I pass out on the couch) by saying this:

Teaching three year olds is SOOOOOOO different than teaching second graders.  But I loved every minute. 


Tomorrow I have the first day of school all over again.  Bring on the four year olds!

Frick and Frack, First Day of School

    Glad your first day was good. Teaching three year olds is a lot of work, and a lot of first days…. since you have to teach them the same general things (like sitting and standing in line) a hundred times… Happy POW
