Things I Don’t Understand

  • How my 2 year old can make me want to scream at one moment & 2 minutes later she is melting my heart?
  • Why, after my last pregnancy, Joe & I didn’t buy a king size bed?
  • How I can’t get on facebook for less than 20 minutes at a time?
  • Why I never make grocery lists, but I curse myself for forgetting 6 items every time.  Wouldn’t you think I would have learned to make lists by now?
  • How I can still miss teaching after 3 years of being out of the classroom?
  • Regression in toddlers?  For 6 months she has been potty trained, yet I feel like we are starting over.
  • Why I can’t sleep without first putting on lip balm?  If I don’t I will just lay in bed thinking about my lips.

You’re turn, what don’t you understand?

    You are funny but some of those items can be fixed. My fees are cheap….talk to me!

    Can’t answer your questions. But I can tell you that your final point … the lip balm? That’s your mom. It’s in the genes.

    you don’t make a list? are you crazy? i’d forget where i was even going without the list!

    i can’t understand how the laundry multiplies like rabbits in the hampers.

    i also can’t understand how my kids can hear me whisper “do you want a piece of candy?” but they can’t hear me when i ask in a normal voice to go brush their teeth.

    Stop by my classroom on any given day of any given week. I promise you will no longer miss teaching.

    I have the same issues with Facebook and chapstick before bed.

    I can’t understand how I can get up earlier that I normally do for work/church/whatever, and still leave at the same time I always do. . . and not necessarily look any better or anything. . . so where does the extra time go???

    I am the same way about chapstick and lotion before I go to bed.

  8. Denise Says:

    I dunno what it is about chapstick, but I can tell you why I miss my students when I’m not with them: I love the energy of teenagers, yes, even the apathetic ones. I love just sharing what I can to help them along their way. Yes, even the ones who don’t want my help. I love having the opportunity to tell150 kids to “have a good day” as they exit my classroom. As hard as it can be, I just love being with them.
