notes from work

1. Names my hypothetical boy child will never be given: Shinnosuke (all kids by this name that I have ever known have been absolute terrors and when you call their name you sound like the mom on Crayon Shin-chan); Genki (your kid is saddled with a name that is either too descriptive or ironic).

2. Because my world is mostly made up of kids between the ages of 1 and 6, with most of my concentration fixed on the 1-2 year-olds in that scale, I tend to lose sight of the fact that the older kids are still really young kids.

3. I need to remember that I have essentially been raising kids from babyhood through toddler for about four years now, while most of the moms are doing it for the first time.

4. Should my hypothetical child ever ingest a desiccant, I will not bring them to school and tell the teachers "call me if she vomits."

5. Even if my hypothetical child is begging to go to school the day after they've been sick with a fever (no matter how cute they look waiting by the door in their pyjamas and shoes), if their temperature is 37.5 or over I will keep them at home for another day.

breaking news!

This weekend has been a failure for me as far as keeping in touch with stuff (my phone isn't working and won't work again until tomorrow, today my internet cut out for about seven hours...). So when Laura got a call from her company saying that the schools in her city (just a few stops down the line from my school) were canceled this week because of swine flu, I thought maybe I should mail my manager and find out if my schedule had changed.

And sure enough, school is canceled. No kids this week. But teachers have to report to work anyway.

I'll actually have prep time this week!
