The kids decided to push me today...okay, again, I can handle this...just not as quickly...ugh, I need to sit, and I can't walk around the room anymore...eventually they kind of took over.
I'm supposed to have a parapro in my room for 75 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the afternoon. She came today...45 minutes late...and stayed for 5 minutes.
I didn't pee for HOURS. I was dying and hurting and in pain and bending over to tie shoelaces and chasing kids who won't sit...NOT OKAY right now.
I had lunch and that was a good thing. Yesterday I didn't have a break and they tried to take my lunch from me. Tomorrow, I don't have a break and I HOPE to get a lunch. Would be nice. I also hope to pee more than once.
At the end of the day, two of my kids freaked out...I was trying to wrangle in the other 18...my phone starts ringing off the hook...I didn't answer. The office staff came up to my room to tell me my son's school was on the phone...he missed his bus. (Middle school is not going well, he can't get it together, he is a hot mess.) I have two screaming kids, 18 normal ones, the bell rang, and I am to IMMEDIATELY call the middle school.
I go to the phone (followed by "But the bell rang, can't we leave?" and two screaming kids who don't want to be on the yellow circle...yet can't follow a direction to save their life and now I can't help...) and called the principal at the middle school. They needed arrangements made NOW for someone to get my kid. I quickly said "Call my mom and I'll call you back in TWO MINUTES to make sure she's coming!" and I let the 18 ready kids go. I tried to help the two screamers pack up...and they ran down the hallway before I could catch them. (They're REALLY lost and they might have gone to play in the parking lot, I have no idea...but physically I CAN NOT GET THEM...yesterday one of them headbutted me in the stomach, that was sweet.)
I called the school...they said my mom was getting him.
I call her, she is freaking out, she has to work tonight for my dad and my sister...so she can get him but she can't keep him and she cant bring him to the sitters because she doesn't know where the sitter lives. Well, it's like 4 doors away so I tell her to calm down...but she can't find it and my son doesn't know where it is, either, even though YOU CAN SEE IT FROM OUR HOUSE.
Just then I get called into a mandatory meeting that was happening RIGHT THERE so I tell mom to look, I call the sitter on the way to the meeting and tell her to stand outside and wave her arms...and I head into one meeting, that turns into TWO, next thing I know I'm late to get the kids...and my cell won't work so I can't get hold of DH...
and the night goes on...I get home and do hours of homework with the kids that they lie about "we don't have homework" and I find it...they are going with dad this weekend, which means they won't do ANY homework and at 7 pm Sunday night I'll be pulling an all nighter to do 6th grade AP math and then work the next day...again with no break, and no parapro...
I should have totally gone into labor after the day I've had. Not even a contraction to speak of...tomorrow I go to the OB and I'm willing to bet money I'm not any more dialated and any more effaced.
BUT...since I'm still a week away from my due date, I'm not going to ask for a plan until NEXT time.
I think I'll just hang in here until my next appointment.
It's just easier when not getting ready to have a baby!!!
I can't even complain...Brandi, last year I had 2 who could do everything and 18 who needed constant one on one...and to think I WAS due in June...I'd have been this big with THAT class...but you get it...the insanity and when it rains...it pours!!!! You can easily go home not pregnant and have to nap EVERY DAY teaching first grade. Well, do it now, girl...both of us, cuz soon, we're both gonna have babies to care for after work!!!
LOL this girl at my work is due in December and they make fun of me and say she is delivering before me =)
Oh man, Angela....what a rotten day! My long term sub came and stayed the day today to shadow. I can't tell you how nice it was to get to pee twice in 7 hours. I am ready to just say see ya in December! Hope yours is better tomorrow!
OMG I'm peeing like 7 times in TWO hours =) My sub is subbing for me on Thurs, it's assessment day!!! She came in yesterday and it's so nice when she is there. (But the kids saw her and not me at first and thought I had the baby LOL!)
That's really nice of her! Our learning consultant is coming to help me, too...my goal is to finish it all by Friday and input scores before I leave work that day! Just in case. It'll just be easier for all involved if I do it early!!!
Thats my goal as well. I may come in the 20th and the 21st but just as a shadow to finish up any little tasks. Plus I have back to school night on the night before my c section. I'm going to that just to stand next to my sub so she won't have to be bombarded by parents
OH MY GOD you are going the night before your csection??? Yow!!!
Our back to school night is Sept 23. I didn't plan to be there initially...thought I'd be delivered by then...now I think I'll be there...which will make the parents happy. But what a long night for me on my feet.
