Reasons why September is the WORST

We are finishing up day 7 and I am so DONE.  



Day 7.  SEVEN.  Why do I do this to myself every year?? Kindergarten teachers should get hazard pay for September.  


24 wiggly, wild kids who act like they haven't ever been inside a school before.  OH RIGHT, they haven't!!  


So far in the last 7 days I have taught them how to...


walk

stand

sit

hold their hand up

color

glue

cut

use the bathroom

drink water

lay down

walk (again and again and again)

stand

sit

glue (again)


I have come home hoarse and unable to talk.  Exhausted and unable to cook dinner to get off the couch.  


whhyyyyyyy do I do this???  I have decided I block September out of my mind, just like I did with childbirth.  It is the only explanation for why I have come back the last 10 years.  


After every September I ask myself why...


and every October I see how much they have grown in that month, and I see their endless potential and I know why I come back.  


I'll still take that hazard pay though.
