I've been posting a lot of negatives.
I've been posting a lot of downs.
This week I'm not going to do that. This week I'm posting some things I love about both my jobs.
I'm posting reasons why I continue to do what I do even when I often don't want to.
The number one reason I'm a lunch lady....
I love those little dorks. Most of the time. Every now and then I let them get to me but for the most part I like being around them. I like when they get stuck in their jackets and they ask me for help. I like when they ask me to sign their yearbooks. I like when they tell me really long stories about how their front "toof" finally fell out. I like when they see me without a hairnet and a hat and they can't figure out how I know them.
Last week the preschool class in our building was all lined up waiting to get a drink at the water fountain. I was walking by and couldn't help but notice that after each little kid got a drink they quickly headed to the end of the line and began to do hamstring stretches against the wall.
It was impossibly cute and I couldn't resist stopping to stretch along with them.
One of the little preschoolers explained to me how to do it and then proceeded to tell me what a good stretcher I was.
That's me...one good stretcher.
Leave me a comment and tell me at least one thing that you like about your job.
- 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.
