Teacher v Mum

I can tell you it ain’t easy being a teacher some days but I don’t know what I was thinking when I brought my son to my school. 😱

Well I do really!

I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool to be in the same spot? We would hang out a bit each day, have chats and travel together. Wouldn’t it be neat to NEVER miss an event because I can’t get the day off? Wouldn’t it be cool to give myself a reason for talking to myself? (Parent/teacher conference- works every time).

Man, how thick am I?? Honestly, like any parent, I love 💕 my kids and would move heaven and earth to keep them safe but seriously- I used to love my drive 🚙 to work. I would sit back for 10-15 minutes (speed dependent) on my drive and enjoy the quiet.

Yep that’s long gone! No more quiet time. Nope. None. Nada. Zip. Caput. That kid talks non-stop. Yep, it’s constant. He even talks in his sleep! I don’t actually know how to get around it so I have resorted to ignoring. Seems sad really, but honestly, my mind needs to close a few browsers every now and then!!

On the up side (hmm there is one). I get the inside scoop on the happenings in my class! I know Everything and I mean EVERYTHING! The students think I have eyes in the back of my head (I do really- I am a parent). They haven’t yet worked out how I know it all!!

He is also great at giving feedback, like today. We were learning division strategies. I thought we were working away quite nicely. I had started with easy division and then went into long division. I could see one of the kids didn’t quite get it- so I asked what he didn’t get, like you do as a teacher. Well then the boy child (that would be my child) steps up “Mum, you might want to rethink this teaching strategy, I don’t think it’s working.”

And they wonder why we drink 🍷? So not sure where I was going with the story but I think you get the idea! I should maybe go make myself a nice cuppa tea!! You know what they say, a cuppa tea solves all your problems!!

Have a fun night and we will chat very soon.

Stay safe x
