happy valentines day.
happy happy heart day!
here's to a happy day at home.
how will you spend your day?
and just humor me for a minute here.
so...i was in helping for the kindergarten valentine party
this morning...and was paired with two moms that i have
never met before.
our "station" was set up in the hallway,
with about 6 paint sticks taped to the floor, and
a large heart at the last paint stick.
the kids were split up into 2 groups, and
were supposed to kind of race each other,
hopping over the sticks, get the heart, and bring it back to the next person.
kind of a relay deal.
our station was to last for 15 minutes long!
(and then the kids rotated thru 6 different stations.)
so it took about 6 minutes into it, and the kids were kind of tired of hopping.
so...i suggested maybe we should do the crab walk instead.
what a great idea, right?
what would be more fun to watch 5 and 6 year olds walk across the floor on
their hands and feet?
WRONG. these moms shot me down like a...
i couldn't believe it.
and you want to know why "the crabwalk wasn't a good idea?"
THEIR HANDS WOULD GET TOO DIRTY.
aggghhh. please humor me.
i hope i don't accidentally invite their kids over
to my FARM for a playdate. ;)
do they even know what DIRTY is?
i know we are all trying to do the best job that we can.
but...really? the crabwalk?
