With sleep in my eyes, I woke up early this morning to greet the day! Volunteer basic training for Lake View Elementary was this morning... It was an entire hour of the most monotonous, tedious, and uninteresting information, that any Joe Schmo should and would know. Such as, don't hit strike children for any reason, don't get involved in teaching the class room, oh, and the button "copy" on a copy machine... means copy! Oh Geez, the best part is some people actually had questions... like "what if two kids are running and yelling in the hall way, shouldn't we correct them?" No, he just said, under NO circumstance are you to discipline or correct the kids... open your ear drums lady!
I have also further decided that my children turn into gremlins at a certain time of the day... Ya know how in gremlins movie, they could not get wet, eat after mid-night, or have to much day light... yup, my kids are born of gremlin blood!
See this afternoon, they turned into those unleashed horrible, malevolently mischievous monsters. They start the day all lovable and sweet, cuddly and unaware of the carnage your about to encounter, you fall victim to there big doe eyes!
Then you miss the nap time, you have water outside, with big muddy puddles that are so delectably irresistible to these gremlins. You have candy swiping occurring and the transformation is set in motion!
Screaming, running, jumping, yelling, hopping, throwing and crying begins! Oh Boy!!!
There is no turning back, after your cute little lovable babies turn into nasty, scaly monsters, they stay this way till the next day!
Door nob after door nob being held, flick after flick to the head, and stop, after dammit, stop... I said stop right now, being yelled, the persecution on their mother, and every adult the passes there way continues to no avail, till I tuck my gremlins into bed. Crying and upset that the chaos and havoc they are wrecking on the world must come to a end.
At this moment when I close the door... I say to myself... YAY! Yay till tomorrow!
