Y3 - 260/365: Brush-a, Brush-a, Brush-a
I had a long trip to Yardley Wood Rail Station today to teach Year 2. It was a mile and a half walk to the school and surprisingly not bad. The children were well-behaved for the most part with a few small squabbles, but nothing unexpected for a supply post. I made certain to tell them what a lovely day I had with them and they actually THANKED me at the end of the day for teaching them!
How polite!! Schools in Birmingham don't often house children with this degree of kindness. It was refreshing.
Matt decided it would be a pizza night and he took off for a bit to Daz's leaving me and the little guy to handle bedtime without him for the night. He's getting better at brushing his teeth properly and even likes to check in the mirror that he's getting them right. It's sweet.
When it was story time I did my part and then he immediately chanted "Daddy, dada" wondering where Matt was to take his turn with Baby Bear, Baby Bear What Do You See? However, tonight Ryan had to go straight to picking up his sheep, flipping his light switch to 'off,' and getting zipped up into his sleep-sack before a milky nightcap.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
