Then I found out specials in the afternoon was switched to the morning because of an assembly for 1st, 3rd, and 4th (PBIS thing). So my kinders were all confused and switched. Then the office called and a parent in the afternoon class wanted to bring in a cake or cupcakes for their kiddo (who ended up being super naughty and totally didn't deserve the party) and what time. I said cupcakes please and around 2 or after (we let out at 2:35).
We switched classes and the kids were whiny! About everything! And I took them out to recess before the cupcake party and when came back in to clean up and I hear a scream from a girl and she said, "*Bella has a baby bird in her hands!!!"
I whip around and see Bella with a DEAD baby bird dangling from her fingertips. A. Dead. Baby. Bird. In the class. I order her to put it in the garbage as I'm certainly not touching it or having her put it back outside. And then ordered her to wash her hands in the bathroom. Then the kids wanted to see the dead baby bird and I moved the garbage into the hall. Then of course the mom chooses that moment to come in with cupcakes and they swarmed the table and I rang a bell and they froze and I barked out to sit 4 at a table and everyone gets a cupcake, doesn't matter what color or what number( they were pool table balls! Not very appropriate for kinder right?). They were done in after that, sugar high with frosting smeared from nose to chin and giggling like hyenas.
Oh but my day wasn't over yet. I was talking to a girl about her poor behavior choices today. She nods her head. I tell her that I'm reporting it to her teacher. She nods her head. Grandma comes in to pick her up. And she
*sigh* That was my day. And then I see on the news that the 3 15 year-olds that set the fire have been ordered to try as adults. And our community has banded together and we've got money coming in...prom is this Saturday for the poor kiddos. Seniors get to come back next week (school is cancelled for all this week in high school) and grades 9-11, we don't know.
Here's hoping the rest of the week is better! And that your Monday was less chaotic than mine :)
