I see I will have to up my game

So, the other day, I decided to wear my giant hamster-shaped mittens for the afternoon just to see if anybody would notice. And? Not a word. Apparently, they are so used to my crazy little antics now that the teacher walking in to the classroom wearing giant fury animals on her hands is just not enough to catch their attention anymore. Finally, halfway into my Grade 2 lesson, I had to take them off because I needed my hands to give out the work to them. And I was like 'doesn't anybody want to ask me about these?' and they were like 'nope, we're good...'

Why I Love Teaching Kindergarten

I got the sweetest little invitation yesterday. A little JK child came up to me on the playground and said "you know, you could come over to my house if you wanted to, and look at my stuffed animals with me." After a moment's thought, she added "you know, I even have an elephant..."

Ah, I see. If I wasn't convinced before that this was just a splendid thing to do, the elephant was the cherry on top that would totally convince me, right?
