Though we’re already on our third week of the summer program, yesterday was the first Monday. (Memorial Day and the conference took up the other two.)
It was a doozy.
Without any narration or context: two birthdays, two birthday treats; first day of Music Class; an entirely uneaten (late) lunch due to the excitement of birthday treats; late nap due to late lunch; two kids with fevers sent home, eating my lunch on the floor of the dark bathroom during late nap due to 1) contacting fever kids’ parents during lunch and 2) serving birthday treats; first day of water play in 103 degree weather (outside for a very short time); covering for a co-worker so she could go home for her son’s 10th birthday; forgetting my phone at work.
I was very, very quiet during the evening hours. That seemed to fix it.
