Cough, cough...

Welcome back to the classroom, Melicity.  My babies are germy and I think I am a germ-magnet.  My head is starting to hurt, my eyes are watering, and my throat is scratchy.

Sigh.  Sorry to be a whiner.

An update to the "Speshul Snowflake" (thanks, Jen, for that!):

Friday I got a message to call "Grandmama" and boy, did I get an earful.  Including, and I quote, "You give too much homework and don't forget, I pay your salary."


Not only that, she has been in education far longer than I have and it is obvious to her that I don't have any children.

Really nice.  Classy, even.

Oh.  And ours isn't the only private school out there.  She just may take Speshul Snowflake somewhere else.

Cue my innermost thoughts:  Well, madame, there is the door.  Don't let it hit you where they good Lord spilt you.

Not that I said that.  I like my job too much to do that.

I did; however, think it.


One more thing:

Good night.

Cough, cough.  Sneeze, Sneeze.



  1. My pleasure! ;-)

    By the way, I don't have children (yet) either. But that doesn't make my spidey senses twitch any less when in the presence of the Speshul Snowflake and Helicopter (Gran)Parent.

    You would think that someone that has supposedly been in the education field would cut you a bit of slack. Guess not.

  2. Grandma is a dork! Enough said! Get over it granny! I relly hope that you don't get the cruds! My girlie has the cruds and has missed school Friday and Monday... :o(

    ps..they are on their way to T.FL!

  3. Empathy coming your way! My very first class was insane, my principal literally drew our students from a hat and I ended up with 2 school board members kids, a fellow teacher's kid and the high school principal's baby. A terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad year. ;)
