|Two sets of gifts from parents today-- In love with the personalized office supplies!|
I'm not sure if I'm embarrassed of myself for the behaviors of the kids in my class or for the parents of those kids. Or if I'm just over thinking things. We had our holiday party today and there were far too many parents there. I think there was a bit of a misunderstanding on the sign up and who was actually supposed to come help out, but I think there ended up being 13 parents in my room with the kids?! And...most didn't leave until the very end of the day.
It was rough for me. I stepped out of the room at one point for a good ten minutes and just talked with one of my room mom's.
My kids were loud.
Yes, they were excited.
They were sugar-hyped.
But I still wonder, does their behavior reflect on me or the parents? Or both? I just get so anxious of others who come in to my classroom and wonder what they think of what is going on. I get nervous. I can't read minds. I don't have a clue what is going on. I just hope they were glad to be a part of what was going on...No matter how stirred up they were.
|Dec. 4: Came home. Turned on the tree. Felt a bit blurry myself, but love this sight.|
On another note...
Jason and I went home last weekend to meet my new niece and see my sister, Caroline, from New Orleans. Hazel is almost two months old and has the chubbiest baby cheeks ever. It was nice to spend time with my family along with Jason. He pretty much decorated our entire tree at my Mom's house by himself. Brownie points.
Tonight...I'm at home watching TV by myself. Reflecting on this school year so far. Over-analyzing. Over thinking. This is the only down side of having time to myself. It's hard not to think. I'm gonna make a cup of tea, maybe read some more of the book I started last night [I just finished Fangirl by Rainbow Rowel-- check it out!], continue watching TV, or perhaps some Netflix. So many options...hard to choose!
