Then we go home to wonderful families to prepare fabulous dinners, help with homework, do dishes, spend quality time with everyone and then have time to blog all about it. Right??
The Ugly Truth is when school's out there are two things I want to do, either nap or go surfing. I drive a typical mommy van and it's usually loaded with a beach bag full of suits and towels and my surfboard. There are many days when I tell my girls, "We can do homework later, mommy wants to surf." But sadly, (for me) most days we head home to do homework and make dinner.
I feel like this all the time. The Ugly truth is I really do not enjoy cooking at all!! Seriously, cooking just gets in the way of all the other things I would rather be doing.
Luckily my significant other enjoys cooking and eating. If it were up to me we would have Macaroni and Cheese or Tuna Sandwiches every night and that's pushing it! A bowl of popcorn would be fine for me. He usually prepares dinner while I help my daughters with their homework, or take a nap.
Which takes us to another Ugly Truth. What does your classroom really look like?? We all stage our pictures a bit to make our classrooms look great, but what's on the other side of that chart stand over there? Holly over at Criss Cross Applesauce is having a fun linky.
Okay so if you walk into my room it looks pretty good:)
Looks nice from far away, but what are all those papers shoved in those extra desks and whats all that stuff hiding under the table?
My book center looks pretty good, games look a bit scraggly though
Writing center has lots of fun stuff in there, but I think its starting to pile up
Umm, okay don't know where to put these things and this is just ugly
along with the horrible blue paper drawers
My center chart looks a little frayed and what's all that behind there?
All my PE equipment-Where am I supposed to store it??
And it's blocking my beautiful clean closet...
not bad, just don't look down....
I guess I could straighten up a bit, but there are creepy, crawly things in there!
So I just open it and toss things in.
I love this bulletin board of my Star of The Week letters...
again don't look down
My recycle bin is overflowing and that dead computer
has been in there all year. It's heavy and I don't feel like
lugging it down to the computer lab.
The Ugly truth is I love things to look nice and tidy, and I usually just open up a drawer and shove everything in. There you have it, confessions of a not so perfect teacher/mommy. Who knew??
