Yesterday I was booked for a full day Kindergarten. The teacher forewarned me the last day I was at this school, that the class 'could be a bit challenging.' Well that was a bit like saying Hitler could be a little aggressive. Wow! I came home deadbeat. They spun in circles, screamed loudly, fought over glue sticks, and listened to nothing. Well maybe that is a bit harsh -- they actually did listen to story time reasonably well, although 'criss-cross applesauce' meant stretched out flat, kicking your neighbour.
I tried singing with the little darlings, that lasted for one song and then the minds and fingers started drifting -- and you know where five year old boy's fingers drift -- I don't have to draw a picture do I?
For a brief moment allow your mind to imagine Julie Andrews singing My Favourite Things, but change the lyrics slightly, Musical Gardener style.
Mittens that dangle attached to yarn strings
Are not on the list of my favorite things
Goldfish crackers, yoghurt squished from long tubes
And then try to argue 'but they're healthy things'
When a child pees
When I'm getting mad
And then I don't feel so bad
The Daily Quest
And that is about all I have to say for today.
Musings and meanderings from the Musical Gardener.
