I woke up this morning to snow on the ground! Not a lot but enough to keep a pup like me entertained.
And for an added bonus, mom did not go to work today!Not because of the snow,(although once they cancelled school because they thought it was going to rain, and there was a school district in Michigan that cancelled school because of the Mayan Apocalypse.) Mom stayed home because she doesn't have to go back to work until next year.
But mom told everyone that today she would be sleeping. She was not going to do anything but rest so no one better call her up or make plans or stop by and she has been pretty much keeping that promise. She still has that nasty cold. (although the pee cough seems to have left).
She said she just had to make it through yesterday. Yesterday was the Holiday Party for the Pre-K. Of course, all of the children were very wound up, which mom knew they would be so she tried to keep them extra busy until the party.(The last event of the day). She taught the kids how to sing Jingle Bells with the verse about Batman in it. The parents all laughed. The director of the place pulled mom over and said: "Don't let the Board of Education hear that. They wouldn't get it." That's true. They are all sooo serious.
Mom also bought them reindeer ears to wear. The kids looked really cute. Many of them came dressed up in their Christmas outfits.
The last thing they did at the party was have a book exchange. Everyone brings in a wrapped book and then they trade. Mom heard a lot of: "Hey! That's my book. I brought it from home." and unfortunately she also heard a lot of: "I didn't know they needed to bring a book." Mom, of course brought extras because she knows there is always one or two that never take their folders home.
So mom just had to get through the Christmas party before she could come home and collapse. She came home yesterday loaded down with presents. Mom has been working with children for a long time so she was prepared for the gifts. Mom's co-teacher is new and was totally shocked, flabbergasted, when the kids kept giving her gifts. Mom reminded her that these are probably gifts that the kids picked out themselves and that's what makes them extra special.
Mom didn't open up any of her presents yet. She is going to wait til Christmas. The kids were amazed. How can you wait that long? You can open these up and then when Santa comes you can open up your presents from Santa.
But the only thing mom opened up was a plate of cake balls. She knew she would have to eat those before they went bad. Plus I found them when mom got home and stuck my nose in the bag. Mom said I couldn't have any because they were chocolate. But she gave me a treatie instead.
So, I am spending my snow day taking care of mom instead of playing in the snow or eating chocolate cake balls. (I told you my mom was mean.)
