I am freaking the f*ck right out

What I am learning about myself this morning: I am not a good person to have in stressful situation. Especially if there are children around because I swear-- a lot. Luckily, no children are or will be witness to my complete and utter spazzery.

That is all.

PS: Thanks LLL; you are very sweet.

One of the hardest things about teaching is curbing my vocabulary eight hours a day.

One of my students' favorite things is when I slip.

I know what you mean. I'm the same way. I get in a stressful situation and the vulgarity flows from my mouth like a fire hose.

Relax, take a deep breath, you'll do just fine. We're all pulling for you kid.

Then what is my excuse for swearing every day?!

Skye, Who could blame you!! What a big day! Swearing is perfectly acceptable at moments like these. So @#%$*&%$#@#$%!!!!! away! GOOD LUCK!! :)

I am thinking about you today! I know you'll do great, kiddo.

You are going to be so glad when this is over. I know you'll do just fine.

They will be okay Skye. You will be okay.

Sitting rambunctious kids for the first time as an adult is like jumping naked into the Arctic Ocean.

Its a shock to the system!

You have to build up your tolerance to children like one builds a tolerance to alcohol. Slow and steady wins the race.

I mean do you wonder why stereotypically Dads are the disciplinarian Hard ass and moms, while they can be strict too, are usually more patient?

Because moms stay with the kids longer. So Dads dont get the opportunity to build that tolerance. So they have less patience and less experience and a lot more *Freak Out.

So cut yourself some slack. I am sure if you watch television, or for heaven's sake know some public school teachers, you will figure that the odds of you teaching them a new curseword after the age of 8 is highly improbable.

Holy shit! I forgot to wish you good luck! I hope all went well. Hell, I know it did :-)

Sometimes alcohol helps. Ha! Sometimes not. Better stick with just breathing! Best wishes to you!!

I guess it is too late for "good luck" - so I hope it all went well.
