It's funny. This time of year, I mean. It's the time of year that happens every year when I think that maybe I don't want to go back to being the lunchroom monitor next year.
The kids are extremely loud. May-itis, maybe? I try not to let them get the best of me...but then there are days when I do just that. If I were just with a few kids I could control the noise...but a couple hundred, almost?
My ears were ringing when I walked out today, needless to say.
And no, it's not just me...everyone that walks through says the same thing.
I seriously must be out of my mind insane for liking my job. I do, on most days. Even on the days when I don't like it, I am thankful for it. And the kids that don't get a lot of love from home get it from me. Hopefully. Unless it's been a crazy day. Just kiddin'...I really do try to be nice to all of them.
But some of them make it pretty hard. I've learned to pray before I go in...no, really. I commit the day to God, and I ask Him to help me display the fruits of the Spirit...love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control. And everyday when I walk out, I thank Him for getting me through one more day.
Especially during the month of May. I love it and hate it, all at the same time. I love it because school is almost out. I hate it because kids go flippin' crazy!
I just might join them one of these days...
Gotta run...kiddos are waiting to be picked up. Love to all.
