WHAT AM I THINKING???

Almost 9 years ago, Jessica was born! Since that time I have not had a full-time job. I started subbing at the school that she attended-but never worked too much. A couple of times I have done long-terms but again I'll say...never FULL-TIME!

Last Wednesday night, a friend that I have taught for in Quitman, called me and out of the clear blue asked me if I would be interested in teaching her pre-school class at her daycare. She opened a daycare last year. Well, after talking with her, I decided to go and talk to her business partner and the next thing I know I am employed!

I started today and only work from 8-noon. There is a girl in the class with me and today we had 14 3 and 4 year olds! The problem has been that the girl that was teaching, didn't have any discipline-so just guess how today went? I am hoping that after a week or two of repetition on classroom rules, we will have a good year! I have school holidays off and they are very understanding that Jess has Dr. app't and is prone to get sick.

So after thinking of every excuse I could, my "mornings of leisure" are over! WHAT AM I THINKING???
