Baby Brain Moment of the Week: Oh, where to begin.....
Story #1: I have to give you some background information. I have a light purple water bottle that I take to school. Got it? : ) This week at school I was eating lunch with my team mates in the teacher's lounge. After lunch, I went to use the adult bathroom located in the front office area. Well there is a light purple Lysol bottle in there. Don't worry, I didn't try to drink it, but I saw it out of the corner of my eye, thought it was my water bottle, and walked back into the lounge with it. My team mate, Kelly, caught it and asked why I was carrying a Lysol bottle around. Oh boy...I just thought it was my water bottle.
Story #2: While teaching my class how to fill out a graphic organizer worksheet, I was holding up the worksheet to show them. The class was giggling and I didn't know why. We were learning about the branches of government, which really isn't that exciting. : ) Oh, they were giggling because I was holding up the answer sheet! They got a few freebie answers but still had to do most of it themselves.
Story #3: I forgot my lunch in the classroom today. Well, I was convinced that it was in the staff lounge refrigerator, which is where I normally put my lunch. I didn't have anything that needed refrigerated today though so I took it to my classroom today. I really did not remember that's where it was until I was in the teacher's lounge.Labor Signs: Hopefully not until the end of December!
