or do others have the problem of having to say the same things over and over and over every day. Just for an example: our custodian wants our chairs stacked a certain way so she can vaccuum well. I told my kids this repeatedly. Modeled for them repeatedly. She came in and told my kids this. Every day when they start stacking the chairs I look up and they are putting them where they aren't supposed to. Every day I'm saying DON'T PUT THEM OVER THERE! We eat breakfast in the classroom. We are given a big trash bag for the food trash so we can easily tie it up and put it outside the door when we're done for the custodian to come pick up. Every day they put their food in the regular trashcan. At first I thought, ok, it takes time, they don't get it. We are on WEEK 5 now!!!! I don't think they are being obstinate or anything, they just aren't thinking about what they are doing. I'm telling you I actually have gray in my eyebrows now-not just in my hair! I think this is karma. I still remember grocery shopping for my mom when she would ask me to go get something and I'd come back 2 minutes later to ask again what it was because I didn't listen.
