I blogged a few weeks ago about being asked to become a Celebrity Reader at a local prep school near my job. Today was my first day. I loved it! The kids were so stinkin' sweet! I received more compliments today that I think I have in my entire life!
Want to boost your ego? Visit with a 5-year-old! I went and read to a Pre-K and Kinder class today. When I was there here are some of the things I heard:
"Mrs. C, you're shoes are beautiful!"
"Hey Mrs. I love your hair!"
"Yeah, well I like her eyes cause they are gold!" (my eyes are poopy brown, not gold by the way!)
"Hey Mrs. your dress is really pretty. You look like you're ready for austin." (he meant autum! We just finished reading a book on seasons!)
"Hey Mrs. your sunglasses look so big and cool like a movie star!"
"Hey Mrs. We really like you. can you come to our class every day?"
Ahhhh...Yep, my head is definitely inflated a bit. At least I know where to go next time I need my ego stroked!
