Today was my first official day of work. Completely on my own, thrown right into the mix. I was able to assess 5 pre-K kids who were all pretty cool kids and I think I got everything right! Yay! Guess all those dreams last night of over-sleeping, forgetting things, and doing things wrong were just that…dreams. Thank goodness!
One girl was especially talkative and was kind of hard to keep on task. Here’s the gist of my favorite exchange:
Girl: “Do you have any son or daughter?”
Girl: “Do you have a husband?”
Girl: “So you don’t have any family?”
Me: “Well, I have my parents and a brother.”
Girl: “You don’t even have a Papa?”
Me: “No, I don’t have any grandparents.”
Girl: [obviously feeling sorry for me]. “So you just have your parents and a brother? You don’t have a sister?”
Me: “No, no sister. Do you have a sister?”
Girl: “No, but I want a baby sister.”
A 5-year-old thinks I’m lonely. Wonderful. Haha.
