- Today was a
goodgreat day. We had an all school assembly and, since I knew it would be Christmas-themed, I went all out. Santa hat, Christmas pin, and ornament earrings that flashed on and off. Oh. The kids L.O.V.E.D. it. I so rock and am the coolest teacher on my hallway.
- SS was there today. This is the second day in a row which means that she will probably be absent tomorrow.
- I found out after school that SS's mommy complained about me (again) to the principal. Yesterday I was in a generous mood and gave out candy in math. I rarely do that because I don't want to deal with the sugar high so candy in my classroom is a BIG treat and a BIG deal. Anyway. I made them wait until the end of the day to eat their candy (remember...I don't want to deal with the sugar high). SS got a lollipop and had it in her mouth when mommy came to pick her up. Mommy asked where she got it and SS told her that I had given it to her. Mommy said "Oh, that was so nice. I hope you told her thank you." They met the principal on the way out and he made a comment about her having candy. He asked where she got it and SS told him that I gave it to the class. Before he could say anything, Mommy says, in a very sarcastic tone, "Yeah, she gives them candy and then sends them home for us to deal with." Um. Yeah. I have no words.
- Totally random.....I am currently eating dessert....Pumpkin spice pudding. O.M.G. so amazingly delicious.
- My babies are just about finished with their picture frames. In case you didn't know, they are all painting/decorating unfinished wooden frames (from Michael's) for their parents for Christmas. I took all of their pictures and printed them out at Walgreens. I have six kids who need to finish up tomorrow and then they will wrap them on Thursday. They are pretty excited and have done such a good job. I'm really proud of them.
- I got my first Christmas present today! One of my students gave me a gift card to Target!!!! Whoo-hoo!!!! You know how much I love me some Tar-jay!! :)
