>…..green pee? Yep.
Gosh, it’s only Wednesday, and this week has so much more in it. I need to sleep for about a week…Monday-Hot Dog Sale, Tuesday-house shopping, tummy bug, Wednesday-hair appointment that takes a while, Thursday-meeting after work, Friday-errands and Husband going out of town. And all of that is just extra piled on top of the chaos that ensues anytime there is a holiday at the Center.
As for the holiday, it was a pretty smashing success. The leprechauns totally trashed the Center, leaving green footprints on tables and, apparently afterward, they needed to potty-green “pee” was found in all the toilets. This begs the questions: why do they pee green and why don’t they use tp or flush afterward? It didn’t matter. The kids LOST THEIR MINDS!!! Screams and yells and laughter could be heard in the long hallway that goes between the main building and the lunchroom. The rest of the day was pretty much written off ‘cuz no one could expect good behavior after all of that. Still, it wasn’t too bad. My kids went hunting for leprechaun candy and finally found some. It was a brilliant moment. The little boy, when he first spied the basket of goodies, looked, looked again, hesitated, looked at me and Co-Teacher, and then, quietly pointed at it and said Teacher, I think that’s some over there! After that, the rest of them got clued in and the screaming and yelling began all over again. The wonder was there, on each of their faces. Real magic happened today. Even the sweet shy guy was giddy about everything. When his dad came to pick him up, he didn’t talk about falling down or dinosaurs. It was all leprechauns, candy, trashed rooms and green pee.
