I haven't wrapped one present yet. My house looks like it could stand up and walk away. I haven't finished Christmas shopping yet. I'm hosting a brunch for 20 plus people on Friday and haven't even decided on a menu.
I just spent three hours with 21 first-graders. That's why I'm exhausted!
We made gingerbread houses, practiced the number grid, had two recesses, enjoyed snack, had a "family meeting", did "count-around", worked on "jobs", said the pledge of allegiance, did the weather, the calendar, and sang three songs. All in three hours. Annie cried again. The kids loved the cinnamon rolls - I even got a thank-you note already! It was really, really fun (especially to spend time with Emma) - but I am wiped. Seriously.
Oh, and just so you know, the present labeled "me" has been opened. Emma decided she just couldn't wait anymore - it was silly putty - for all of you that were proud of her for waiting, I don't know what to tell you!
