What I Overhear During My Morning Break

Posted by Lara at 11:43 PM

[Names changed to protect the innocent, as always.]

"Ayu, stop!"

"Puff-Puff, no shooting! We do NOT shoot our friends!"

"No, BB - take the tan bark out of your mouth!"

"Princess, your shoes are on the wrong feet."

"Puff-Puff, stop shooting!"

"Bebby! Bebby! ... BEBBY! No, Bebby, over here."

"Use your words, Elfin."

"If you're stuck, Bossy, move the other car! ... Yes, QueenR, you need to help if you want to ride with her."

"Puff-Puff, if you shoot again, you're going to sit in time-out!"

"Princess, they're still on the wrong feet. Take them off and switch them."

"Le Petit - thumb out of your mouth."

"BB - finger out of your nose."

"Ayu - hand out of your pants."

"Puff-Puff! Stop! Come sit here right now!"

"No, Princess, the other foot."

"Slow down, QueenR - that's how you fell yesterday!"

"Bleu, you're playing so nicely in that sand. Puff-Puff, look how nicely Bl-

PUFF-PUFF! PUT THE CAT DOWN!"

...

Can you understand why my 15-minute breaks always seem much too short for me?

In other news, I hope you've all taken the opportunity to check out my new photo blog. A new photo every day, and admiring the pics takes only about 10 seconds from your life. Leaving a comment probably adds about thirty seconds. Seriously? That's less than a minute.

I'm exhausted just from reading that! Nick and I used to volunteer to work with 3- to 5-year-olds, and luckily we only did it for about two hours at a time or else I think I would go insane.
