Only space for a little love today.
Today I had only a little space reserved for love.
The parking lot in my heart was full.
My head was at work today while my heart was full of love for my boys. That only left a little for all the mini peeps. My heart kept leaping back to the fact that my preschooler will officially be in Preschool next year.
You see today I stepped out of my Loading Zone where I happily go about delivering packages of learning. When I relief teach (sub) I normally teach primary school aged kids (5-13 here is Australia). Today, for the first time in 19 years I taught Kindergarten kids.
Wow! What a jaw-dropping, eye-opening experience. It was not dissimilar to having 30 clones of my little guy. The only differences were some were wearing frilly stuff and I didn’t have to wipe one single bum.
Today I got paid what most would consider a tidy sum to push swings, paint, sing songs, amuse, read, do puzzles and play. Hey, isn’t that what I do at home every other day for a big fat zero? So why did today go so slow and all the days at home whiz by like a police car chase scene? Today was a No Standing Zone exactly the same as any other.
I have no clue. I’m still trying to work out if it’s the best or worst part that I get to do it all again tomorrow and Thursday.
So this post resembles a beat-up old Vee-Dub or the Mini that may not be able to fit everything in that I’d like to.
I hope the brakes are fixed by tomorrow night though because it’d be nice to be able to stop.
Please note the RESERVED signs where only my boys are allowed to park.
