I have been sick this week, and missed a few days of school. After being home Monday and Tuesday, I came back Wednesday to a class that was visibly relieved to have me back. Things are so routine-driven with me around, I imagine it could be a little bit hard to spend two mornings with two different subs who don’t know our routines at all.
Anyway, near the end of the morning I went to pick them up from Gym class, and they were already in their ABC line, waiting for me. As I approached, only the first two in the line could see me, and they both just lit up from inside. The looks of adoration those two gave me made me feel like a combo of Movie Star and Mommy.
I’m very lucky. I love this job.
