Lessons from the Lunchlady (what I learned last week)

What happened to last week?  Is is really Monday?

I'm a little lost.

Here's what I learned last week in the cafeteria.
  • No Snow Makes for A LOOOOONNNGGGG week.  This was the first week in a long time that we didn't have a snow day or a two hour delay and let me tell ya I was feeling it.  Can you say afternoon nap?
  • Kids View Age Differently than Adults.  My co-worker turned 42 last week (gasp).  Our school announces all the birthdays in the building during morning announcements and when the kids were coming through at lunch they were all wishing her Happy Birthday.  One little boy said at least your not over the hill like my mom.  She's 40!  Baaahaaa....
  • Boys don't like Valentines Day  Third grade boys don't like Valentines Day.  Some of them act like they are allergic to pink.
  • Mean girls exist in all ages.   If there's one thing that gets my blood boiling it's mean girls.  Girls who box you out of the lunch table; girls who say things like 'You're not my friend anymore'.  Girls who act like they are better than you.  I had to talk with a few of them last week about what it's like to be the girl that no one will sit with.  It's sad to see this on the elementary level.
  • Government Egg Patties look like breast pads.  This one is kind of self explanatory.  They would fit perfectly into a nursing bra which is somewhat frightening.  You'll be happy to know that the words Le Leche didn't appear anywhere on the box.  I know because I checked.
What did you learn last week?

I learned that even though my kids aren't little any more, I still like reading books to little ones and I still think those books are cute.

Life is different when a week is forever.

And it is not just mean girls - boys can be just as mean both psychologically and physically.

If I ever need breast pads, I'll have the Little One bring them home from lunch!

And over the hill???? I'm offended!

That you checked the box for La Leche was enough to make me laugh out loud. Thanks!
