Every now and then I like to share a quick list of things that I know and things that I don’t know.
I now declare that it’s that time again.
Things I know number one…
My husband is not a morning person. This was far less obvious when he was traveling a lot for work.
Just in case you ever run into my husband before 8am you should remember to not speak to him or make direct eye contact.
If he grunts at you it’s best to smile and wish him a pleasant day.
A consequence of this discovery is that I get the kids ready before I go to work and he looks after the dreaded bed time so it’s really not such a bad thing.
Things I know number two.
Sometimes you get bitten on the chin by a small child at work.
This is far more likely if you actually work with children.
It hurt a bit and I informed the child’s mum at pick up time and showed her the bruise on my face.
Then I felt bad because as the mother of a child with special needs things will never be easy for her and he will need her to look after him forever.
And forever is a long time after my bruise will have faded.
Things I know number three.
I have never known any of the people on the Crime Stoppers pictures. I feel that this is really hampering my efforts to help the community and contribute to catching criminals.
However it does spare me a lot of paperwork and possibly a stint as a witness in a murder trial.
Things I don’t know…
I don’t know where my friend got her lovely wooden spoons with the silicone handle tips.
I’ve googled them but I can’t find them. I should probably just ask her.
I should also feel rather smug at the fact that locating silicone handled wooden spoons are my biggest dilemma at the moment.
Things are going well.
I’m tired from this whole getting up, going to work and being forced to drink fake Nespresso pod coffee thing.
But I’m thrilled that I can wear my lovely blue overalls and my shoes with the flowers on them and get paid to spend time talking and listening to children.
The kids and their comments delight me.
A little girl (probably my favourite) told me she saw seven people get aten by sharks at a swimming pool.
While I was talking about how my grandfather fought in World War 2 she was far more interested in how old he was when he died and what he died from.
Kids are blunt, unfiltered and silly.
Much like me.
And that’s a quick recap of what I know and what I don’t know. xx
