Happy Sunday my sweet friends! I am BEYOND excited to post today about a brand new, super fabby fab, monthly linky party that is starting today!
Me and Brittany from "Closing the Gap... in a Cute Outfit" are hosting each month. This is totally fun and super chill. Here's how it works:
That's right - you can link up as MANY times as you want! Once a day, once a week, or once a month, it is completely up to you!
When you link up, please include a link back to the original post so that others can easily find us and join the party! Feel free to use the "Guidelines" button on your blog post as well!
I cannot wait to see all of the amazing outfits that you are wearing :)
JOIN THE FUN AND LINK UP HERE:
SO here is my link up for the month. I am using some pictures I have taken over the past month. I plan on linking up again at the end of next week with my outfits from this week :)
There it is! The very first Share Whatcha Wear post! YAY! I truly hope you will link up and join in on the fashionable fun with us :)
And now to share yet another wonderful adventure from my life of kindergarten bliss. The kids were having a particularly rough day. We're talking tattles every two seconds, arguments about crayons/erasers/who is taller/who is shorter/who has darker hair/who has the cooler made-up club/who eats faster/who likes spiderman more/who can scream the loudest (which I ended real quickly)/who has longer toes/who can jump the highest/etc. I think you get the point. So I could immediately tell that centers were going to be more difficult than usual.
I am working with my small group when I hear, "I DID TOO BRING MY VA-J-J'S!!" I looked up, taking a deep breath, to see who was screaming this across the room. I see one of my BOYS standing up, red in the face, yelling this at the little guy next to him. And yes, you read that correctly. It was a boy screaming about his va-j-j's (plural. sigh.) I could only imagine what was coming next. You know that moment when you are calling them over and you just think to yourself, "Seriously? How am I going to handle this one?" I was feeling that. So they came grumping over, all feisty. Here's how the conversation went:
Me: Boys, what's the trouble here?
Va - J: HE SAID I DIDN'T BRING MY VA-J-J'S TO SCHOOL AND I DID!
The rest of the class: WHAT'S A VA-J-J? WHY DID HE BRING IT TO SCHOOL? DO I HAVE A VA-J-J? CAN I HAVE ONE?
At this moment I am just praying that no one walks into my classroom. Can you imagine trying to explain why your entire class is screaming about vaginas? I'm not sure I could.
(After silencing the rest of the class)
Little guy: All I said was that he isn't supposed to bring his va-j-j's to school with him.
Me: Ok, little guy, take a seat for a moment while I talk to va-j-j.
(no I did not call them that - I used their actual names, but for clarification purposes I will call them by this)
Honey, can you please explain to me what it is that you brought to school?
Va - J: It's just my va-j-j's. They are in my bookbag.
Me: (hesitantly) Can you bring me your bookbag please?
I was pretty much praying that this was a huge misunderstanding because if I opened that bookbag and found multiple va-j-j's, I would quit.
So I opened the bookbag and guess what I saw - pajamas. Yes. Pajamas.
Me: Is this what you are talking about? Your pajamas?
Va - J: Yes, I left them in my bookbag after leaving my dad's house.
Me: Did you mean to say "pa-j-j"?
Va - J: That's what I said. Va-j-j.
Me: No honey, I think you mean PA-j-j.
(which, honestly, is still a questionable choice to call your pajamas. What ever happened to jammies or pj's? Did I miss a new trend here?)
So in the end, all was well. There were no pa-j-j's in bookbags and the quarrel ended with everyone being friends again. And, yet again, I am left wondering how I make it through each day with my sanity.
Hope you had a relaxing weekend my bloggy besties! Don't forget to link up your fashionable moments!
Love and hugs!
