My sweety usually has Mondays off from work. Today, he made a base for my bottle tree. We had some pieces of oak salvaged from a wooden pallet lying around, so that is the wood he used. Now all it needs is more bottles, and I am working on that. I have a White Merlot chilling!
While sweety was at home, I was at school. My Teaching assistant had to work in another classroom today since we were very shorthanded. So I had the pleasure of this experience alone! A cute little girl in my afternoon class arrived wearing a skirt with jinglebells on it. It was over her regular clothes and looked like part of a costume. Shortly upon arrival in the classroom, another little girl was wearing it! Since it wasn't causing a problem, I let it go and made a mental note to be sure the skirt went home on the correct child! Later, the students were on the carpet and I was reading a story, when I noticed the little girl playing with a couple of the jinglebells that had fallen off. Actually, they had probably been assisted off by little fingers. I told her to put them in the skirt owners "mailbox" which is our name for their cubbies. She obediently got up, went to the mailboxes and returned. A moment later, I looked at her, and she had a red jingle bell in one nostril and a green jinglebell in the other! I pretty much shrieked, " (little girl's name), get those jinglebells out of your nose!" She calmly took a breath through her mouth and blew them out. This time I told her to put them in the trash and put the skirt in the owners mailbox. Later, I explained the dangers of putting items up your nose. Then, when the students were leaving for the day, I called to her, " Remember, it's supposed to be rings on your fingers and bells on your toes, not up your nose!" She giggled and replied, "You made a rhyme!" Oh, those four-year-olds!
Oh, and I apologize for not having photos to accompany this story! haha!
