The end of last week was totally wack a doo for Firecracker, Sweet Pea and myself. My Mom is the principal of a small, Christian school near me and they were short 2 teachers last Thursday and Friday. Because she knows I have a background in teaching and that I am a wuss that will say yes ;), she asked me if I would mind filling in.
See when these type of situations usually occur I say, "oh, I'd love to help, but I have 2 kids at home and I don't know what I'd do with them. Sorry!" However, this time my Sis- in - law, Mrs. Pickles stepped in and said, "oh, no worries, I'll watch the kids". (now mind you I had to drive 30 minutes to drop the kids off then turn around and drive 20 minutes to the school. Then in the afternoon I had to do the same drive again. Having a commute sucks booty). So I reluctantly accepted the opportunity to change up our schedule for a few days.
I enjoyed my time in the classroom. I was really assisting another teacher, Ms. Lori, and she was FABULOUS to work with. We laughed together, had fun with the kids together and worked well together (at least I thought so =). I can't say enough good things about Ms. Lori. She loves on those kids, but doesn't take any flack from them. Pretty much the hallmarks of a great teacher.
Anyway, it was quite the change of pace, and I came home completely exhausted both days. I got a teensy, weensy, little taste of what it's like to be a working Mama, and I gotta say I'm not a fan. I missed my babies. They're only small once, and I am so thankful that God has given me the opportunity to stay home with my kids. Thank you, Lord! And thank you, Hubs, for making it possible.
And now I'm going back to my regularly scheduled life. *Insert deep sigh of relief here*
Have a great day!
