I don't get sick often, but when I do all I want to do is rest. And now that both kids are in school, I've been able to take care of myself. But not today!!
Today, I noticed that my calendar listed that I was scheduled to be the lunch and recess monitor at my kids' school. "Oh joy!!" I said to myself (YES... that was sarcasm).
When I got to school, I immediately noticed that the kids had way more energy than necessary. So I gave them some ground rules (gotta have ground rules!): don't drive me crazy, don't hit me in the head with a frisbee and don't make me yell cause my throat hurts.
After we entered the gym for recess (thank God it rained and I didn't have to be out in the cold!), the seemingly bazillion kids broke out into a frenzy of loud but adorable play. Then, they proceeded to drive me crazy, and of course, I had to yell (ouch!).
But in the end, the kids spent all of their extra energy, I survived the assignment and the school building is still standing thanks to yours truly,
The Lunch & Recess Monitor
P.S: I did not get hit in the head with a frisbee!!
