My family, musings and life in the turtle pond

Long time, no blog

And yes, here is a good reason. I have been exhausted by health challenges and work and kids and life, that siitting down to write just hasn’t happened! oops!


Abominable Snow toddlers!

That’s exactly what they are when they have to go Now and the poor teacher (me) is trying to get them out of the durn things. I swear that who ever invented them didn’t actually have toddlers! And here’s the thing. We are in the same building that the kids live in, so there is no reason to put them in a snow suit. It doesn’t snow in our building.At least not in the last 2 years,anyway. Actually our building is so hot its usually about 80 degrees in our classroom. Absolutely no reason for snowsuits.

Then there’s the issue of overalls. Sure they look cute. But guess where the straps go during toileting? Yup!  So do the tails on onsies.And pretty dresses look cute, but you can’t really play outside or paint in them

Who comes up with kids clothing anyway?


1.bored kids
2.sleeping kids
3.the rooster is paying more attention than the kids

Lesson of the day

1. Miss Turtle’s cell phone can’t swim.
2. Baby cheetahs purr real loud
3. Lettuce and tomatoes stuff up the toilet.

of course:

-A rooster walked into circle time. (and paid more attention than the kids.
-I called the schedule an aardvark.
-The photographer showed up on Pajama day.
-The possum is back in the art cabinet
-Management doesn’t see an issue with a broken wall and falling plaster.
-Our water has a high lead and copper content and looks like it came from the toilet. (used)
-Today is warm and sunny,but all the kids are in snow gear.
-I have been given some wonderful treasures!

What was I thinking?!

“please check the February aardvark to make sure its ok.” The look on my new staff members (who doesn’t really know me yet.) was totally priceless.

Thisngs got very busy and I wasn’t feeling very well.
