I didn't want to get up this morning. I fell asleep super early last night. We had our early morning meeting today. I was reminded of a couple of things that I haven't been doing top notchly in my classroom. I need to get on that. I feel some guilt now about what I haven't been doing. Next week - right? But I do feel some excitement about my room, as I've got my Mountain Math & Mountain Language just about ready to start. Monday we're starting & I think it'll be great for my kids.
Side note - my little "pooh chunk" has had a fairly good week. Not for the sub, but for me. He's earned back a few privileges. This morning, he told me that his big brother has been hitting him. I wanted to cry for him. I know we've all mentioned that somethings missing in his life - I haven't doubted it one iota. I told him to tell him mom when he gets hit. If she doesn't do anything, to come tell me. I hate having to get DCFS involved, but this is one of those situations where I will, if needs be. I told him that just how I won't let him hurt anyone, I won't let him be hurt either. I hate thinking about someone getting hurt, even if at times, I want to hurt him.
I have another date tonight with John. I'm excited. We went to lunch on Monday. It was fun. Wish me luck!
