today was a banner day.
it was my FIRST day working in samantha’s class.
i had a great time.
i LOVE getting to know the other kids.
i LOVE seeing my daughter in action.
i LOVE watching the teacher.
i LOVE learning.
and today was no exception.
the bonus of working in the class RIGHT before lunchtime?
GOING TO LUNCH!
there’s a bonus for me this year: after Samantha’s lunch period, DAVEY has lunch period. so if i have a “sitter” for Alex and if i want to lose my hearing, i can sit through TWO lunch periods and ENJOY my children. and it’s worth it.
and today, i knew i made the right decision to stay for about 10 minutes of Davey’s lunchtime. because not only did i get the privilege of talking with my son during the middle of the school day, but i got to hear the kids at the other tables whisper (and shout out to me) “there’s Davey’s mom!” i was well-received with lots of hugs and excited “hellos!” and “we miss you!” statements.
i LOVE that i get to be a stay at home mom.
i LOVE that i have friends who will play with Alex so i can help in my kids’ classrooms.
i LOVE my Munchkins.
today, my heart is full and i am VERY thankful for this life.
