The hallways are empty now. The kids have gone home and so have the majority of the teachers.
I stayed for a meeting and just as I was about to walk out the door I remembered, “Oh, I have to copy that…”
And so while it copies, I take the necessary bathroom break that I planned on taking in my own home.
As I make my way back to the copy room, I round the corner only to be met with very large, eyes and a mouth full of chips…
“You look like… everything beautiful!” our district literacy coach says and we both chuckle. I can tell not only does she actually love my enthusiasm, but she also appreciates it. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate people like her.
I offer the only explanation I have for the reason why her eyes are so wide, “Crazy Hair Day.” I shrug.
And we both laugh again.
Here is a picture of only the front… which includes 2 flower headbands, 3 buns, 2 bracelets, 1 fake flower, 1 red ribbon, and 1 cup ring identifier with beads and grapes (which typically goes at the bottom of a wine glass). I am also wearing mismatched earrings (a fishy biting my ear and a hamburger that reads “Hangry”) and an apple necklace while wearing a mock of Ariel’s blue dress.
You can say I went all out. 🤪 After all, it’s all for the kids, right?!
