Goody Kindergarten Field Trip

Mary, did you get the memo about the meeting? What meeting? Today’s. When is it? Now. No, I didn’t get it. Come on. I don’t think so. I hate meetings. Okay. But while I am here, I have to ask. Do you want to go on a field trip with the kindergarteners? No. Teacher looks surprised. Why? Kindergarten is hard. I’d rather jump off a cliff into a vat of wild boars Who have not been fed in a week than go on any field trip with Kindergarteners. Kindergarten teacher laughs, Thinking Mary is kidding. Mary is not.

You're right. There's nothing worse, except maybe trying to sub for a 7th-8th grade Sunday morning Sunday school class, whose denizens' hormones are exploding every second. I IDENTIFY!

I put on a Sunday School Christmas pageant once with 85 children. Dress rehearsal was awful, in a sale barn, that had no heat, which had been frequented by a skunk and the children could not hear me at all because their Mommies were told to take that 2 hours off to do Christmas prep things. I went home and cried for an hour after the practice.

Thanks Line. I spent a whole school day being a sub for kindergarten twice; they ran me ragged, it was the most insightful time; I cannot be with Kindergarten. They are way too tough!

Hah - that is exactly how I feel about a field trip with kindergarteners!
