I've been trying to whittle down my baking items stash, which at one time took up an awful lot of pantry shelf space, since I won't be baking much for the next six months or so. Besides the flour and sugar staples, I'm down to half a bag of white chocolate chips, a bag of caramels, a couple ounces of unsweetened chocolate and a brownie mix.
I must admit that on some Thursday mornings, my attitude isn't as sunny as it should be.
I dislike helping with "guiding reading" time because the kids don't listen to me and are generally interested in everything else BUT doing what the teacher asked of us.
Sometimes the kids leave me feeling like pounding my head.
Sometimes they leave me crying "whhhyyy!?!" As in, "why won't you sit still and read?!?"
And other times they are complete angels and cooperate fully, leaving me feeling guilty for not wanting to go in the first place.
Um, yeah...you don't have to say anything. I already know what you're thinking.
