This week was filled with wild and crazy and the kids were a little out there too. I find that I don't really need to watch the weather channel as I can tell when we will be getting snow just based on how the students are behaving.
Here's what I learned this week:
Lunch duties are difficult for those over 70: My co-worker lost her grandma this week and took a day off to attend funeral services. We were blessed to have a sub but I must tell you I was surprised by her age. She seemed to have a lot of trouble performing tasks like cleaning the tables, rapidly putting dishes away and moving faster than 5 m.p.h.
Kids are always honest: Even when it comes to things that happen in their homes, kids will just tell it like they think it is. I asked a 2nd grader about his new haircut and he told me "my dad drank 6 beers and then cut my hair...I don't think it was a good idea."
Rotten milk makes for a bad breakfast: We had a few days off to mark the end of the marking period and for report card preparation. We thought our milk was going to be fine, the dates were all good and we had no reason to believe they would spoil. Until breakfast the day we came back and the kids dumped rotten chocolate milk on their fruit loops. Let me tell you, that is a real gag reflex test.
Early release for weather: When snow starts falling hard enough to require an early release, lunch time becomes something crazy and sporadic. I was very thankful that I wasn't in charge and just had to go with the flow.
Picture day and BBQ chicken. These two days can not walk hand in hand. Thankfully, picture day was rescheduled. Hopefully not for pasta and meatball day.
Two hour delay and re inspection day: We were reinspected as per the state requirement. Apparently a perfect rating on Thanksgiving dinner isn't impressive enough. We had to get another perfect on a two hour delay while working with a substitute. What can I say...we ROCK!
What did you learn this week?
- I'm a 41 year old (gasp) freelance writer, school cafeteria manager, wife and mother. I have three children and one anxious and overweight beagle. I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
