Or otherwise known as the snow day dance. Yes, that’s right, we don’t have school today. Is there any snow on the ground? Nope. Supposedly we are supposed to get a couple inches in about an hour or so. So, I’m kinda glad they’ve cancelled school.
What am I going to do on this snow day you ask? Well, I’ll tell ya! Lots of Christmas odds and ends and errands. Exciting right?
I went to the dentist yesterday (an exciting visit, lemme tell ya) and spent basically an hour listening to the hygenist scrape cement off my teeth. Fun, fun, fun. When my orthodontist took off my “bumpers” for Invisalign he left a lot of extras on my teeth.
This was not fun my friends, not fun at all. it wasn’t that it hurt, it was the sound of the scraping on my teeth. It was like squeaky styrofoam, nails on mini chalkboards and whatever else makes your skin crawl all at once.
On the plus side I did get to read this funny comic.
Yesterday a little boy brought in sugar cookies for the class to eat. Here is a conversation that I had with one of my first graders…
S- Are there sugar in these cookies?
MG – Yes, they are sugar cookies.
S- Oh, my mom says I’m not allowed to have a lot of sugar
MG – Well, then you don’t have to eat the cookie if you don’t want to
S-Well, I’m just not supposed to have a lot of sugar
MG – Okay, then just eat part of the cookie, eat half
S- Okay, but I’m not supposed to eat a lot of sugar (kinda feeling like a broken record…)
MG- Okay, you just eat as much as you want.
minutes miliseconds go by… I walk back over to his desk
S- You don’t have to tell my mom I ate a cookie, right? (He says with green sugar sprinkles all over his mouth and a green stained tongue)
MG – No, I’m not going to tell her, but I think she’ll figure it out…
I just thought it was funny that he basically wanted to be validated that it was okay that he have a sugar cookie and that he was only going to eat part of it.
Happy Snow Day!
