This was THE worst day of summer preschool so far! My twos were in horrible moods today -- ALL of them! They were pushing, snatching toys, pulling hair, screaming, stomping, throwing, kicking, crying, whining, tantruming ALL MORNING. I would no sooner get one disaster averted than another would crop up. At the end of the day, I sent one child home with a bite mark, one home crying because he had just been pushed down, one angry because her hair had been pulled, and NONE happy. It was one of those days where one thing goes wrong and it snowballs from there and you just never get things back under control. Does not help that my assistant is just not physically up to the challenge of twos. Not her fault, but she should have been hired with older kiddos. She can't keep up and it makes extra work for me. I'm trying to deal with diaper changes, trips to the potty, accidents, spills, disagreements, AND trying to lead fun and engaging activities at the same time. I just can't do it all! I can't wait till fall, so I can run screaming back to high school! Tomorrow is another day. Right? I can start the day off well and have everyone working together tomorrow. Right? I can, at the very least, prevent injury tomorrow. Right?! UGH!
