Don't Hit Me in the Head with a Frisbee

Hello everyone and sorry for not writing in a while. I've been stricken with my first cold of the season... and it's a bad one. Since Saturday, I've been experiencing a burning chest, painful cough, sneezing and stuffy head. Basically, I just want my mama!!

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,

Mrs. Mayborne
The Lunch & Recess Monitor

P.S: I did not get hit in the head with a frisbee!!
