I like Mondays....

.......when they are OVER!

I think I know why I don't like working on Mondays.  My theory is that the parents of my 1 year-olds must run all weekend long, so when the kids come back Monday morning~they're all still 'hungover' and lacking in sleep.   It's the only thing that makes sense to me..... 

Most of the kids were sleepy by 9:30 and lunch isn't until 11.  One boy did not stop crying all day.  When I got there this morning, Mrs. Office Manager was in there asking if he had calmed down (he wasn't crying at that exact moment) so Mrs. Lead said he was okay.  But as soon as she shut the door, he started up again.  I bet he went an hour all day without crying, excluding his nap.  

We had another full house today, 16 kids.  Griffen wasn't supposed to be there, so he made a surprise appearance.  I just love this little chunk of a boy to death!  He is always so happy-go-lucky.  Even though he is the biggest boy in class, he's a real sweetheart.  And his daddy isn't too bad to look at either ; )   ~me-ow~  

Ms. Hurricane was there and my last one to leave tonight, too.  I had all the toys picked up and she and I were reading books when her mom came in with her older brother.  He walked in and immediately went into the play area to start getting toys out, and I said "Could you not get the toys out, please."   

He looked at me like you're not my mom, and was getting them anyway...  So I said, "Ok, but whatever you get out, you have to put back because I'm leaving now."  I put my coat on and grabbed my stuff.  That prompted Mom to say something to him and he stopped.  I hate coming across as a bitch, but I have to make my class, and any other day, Kennady would've been gone already.  Even my usual 6 o'clocker got picked up before 5 pm.....   

The pregnant substitute, I talked about her here before, had some difficulties and had a baby girl via C-section at about 30 weeks gestation last Thursday.  The baby, named Kelcie weighed 2.5 pounds, but is doing very, very well.  She is only on O2 by nasal cannula and requiring no meds, at the moment.    Apparently a blood clot had developed between the uterus and placenta~the docs said it was different from an abruption~but I don't see how?! 

Anyway, there is now a question as to if she can ever carry another child.  So sad for a girl not even 20 yet.... but at least she has Kelcie, God willing.  But everyone is optimistic and her prognosis is considered good.  

I'm going to get her something tomorrow and give it to #4 to take to her.  The baby will probably get to come home in May, when she weighs enough.  But she'll be big enough to dress in preemie clothes before you know....  

Speaking of babies, Jennifer~the pickle chickie~announced the winner of Mr. Zachary's (as she calls him) birth statistics... congrats to Jackie from Small Town Life for only being 4 ounces off his weight and right on the money in length :)   Go give some love......  

My girl has school tomorrow and I haven't even looked at her calender to see what she's supposed to bring.... I think it's purple week~I guess I'll be creative in the morning  ; )  She has to wear something purple too, which means to her that she has to put every piece of purple clothing she has, on.....  Oh well.  

I'm told the new song is playing, but I can't hear it.  Anyone ever have this problem?  I have already checked all the connections, volume controls, and sound card~ without incident.  I can't figure it out.   But, I can't stop yawning, so I'm calling it a night.   

Have a great night and tomorrow.....

Hey Cat, sorry I haven't been around lately but I haven't forgotten about you. The teachers at my son's pre school always say the samethings about Mondays and really it is true. I spent this whole weekend running around and my kids all went to bed before 8 tonight.

I agree with the Monday hangover you are talking about...it's the worst day to get Josh and going, and he always falls asleep in school on Monday's too.  Wish they didn't have the nap time, but in his case, I guess it's a good thing.
That poopr helper girl!  How sad.  Thank God the baby is okay and doing well.  That is the toughest thing is walking out of the hospital the first time without your baby...and then you are in the hospital as much as you can be with the baby...my thoughts and prayers are with her...it will be a very rough time for her.  
Have a fun time getting Gracie ready for Purple day!!
