It's getting close to a break and you can really tell by how much I'm am getting tired of but this one is really bugging me. This is just this morning's conversation: me: okay I only have 5 Chapter reviews turned in. Those people that did not turn in a chapter review will be in a recess. child: What? that's not fair! (starts crying) me: not fair? Do you think it's fair that these 5 people actually took home their homework and instead of watching TV or playing with their friends, actually DID their homework last night? child: But it's not FAIR! I'm a child, I should be going out for recess! yesterday: me: alright *child* go put your name on the board because you were not ready for class when the buzzer went off. child: WHAT?!?! My book was in my cubby instead of my desk! It's not FAIR that I have to put my name on the board. It's not my FAULT! (starts crying) me: Sorry buddy, life's not fair. (You can tell by my lack of enthusiasm that I really am getting tired of this) My class is so emotional it drives me crazy. If I have them stay in for recess, they cry. If I put their name on the board, they cry. If I tell them they got a word wrong on their spelling test, they cry. If I use the word bureau on a spelling test, I get punched in the face (okay totally separate incident but still emotions running wild). Can Christmas break get here any faster?!?!?! P.S. I tried to take a personal day this week because I have gotten no Christmas shopping done and no one will come in to sub the week before Christmas.
