It’s eight o’clock here and I have actually been awake since six. Maybe because I was trying to convince my boy that his phone was an hour off and if he didn’t get out of bed, he’d be late for work. Or maybe it’s because I AM GOING BACK TO PRE SCHOOL TODAY!
Now, for those of you who have only recently started following me, let me recap. from September to December of 2012, I had a field placement in a pre school classroom not too far from college. I fell absolutely in love with my students, and everyday I went there, I felt good about myself. Now, around the end of September, my (then boyfriend) dumped me unexpectedly and I was pretty much at a loss for what to do. There were a lot of people who helped me out at that time. One of them was a blogger, a couple were my roommates, one of them was Call Me Maybe, another was Horsing Around. I had so many influences that helped me get better and helped me become a better person.
One of the biggest ones was my pre schoolers. No matter what was happening in my life, whether it be school or homework or social problems or boys, they were there for me. Now, I don’t mean there for me in the traditional sense that they let me vent and talk and cry. These kids always came in with smiles and hugs and they would take me away from my life and my problems. It also helped because I could see the impact I had on them. I watch a child who had trouble in social situations get better and make friends. I watched them grow and laugh and learn. It’s a beautiful thing, a wonderful thing.
I’m so excited to go back and visit them. i get the feeling though that my heart will probably break when I have to leave today, but I don’t give a damn. I miss my kids.
