The Bright Side

I'm going to be honest.

Working with kids isn't always a stroll through the daisies.

They may look cute and harmless.

But unlike daisies, kids are loud, chaotic and definitely don't smell like a field of flowers.

I come home from work every day absolutely exhausted and drained.

It's not all bad though.

When I get home, I get to tell everyone about the funny things my little kiddos do.

And something that's even better than silly stories.

Kids have birthdays.

And when they have birthdays, they bring yummy Sesame Street characters for me to munch on.

Elmo came to see you!

There's only one thing better than looking at this adorable cupcake.

And that was eating it.

I really like my job!

That's a pretty cute Elmo. Thank heaven for birthdays and moms! I liked your comparison of 2-yr-olds and daisy - both cute but that's about it!

I agree, child care is EXHAUSTING! But it makes for lots of good stories.

Short one: Once, when teaching preschool, another teacher came in to give me my fifteen minute break. I asked if she wanted me to just take [INSANE CHILD] with me, but she said "Nah, we're buddies!"

When I came back she was holding his arm while he screamed and tried to run, and she was in tears.

Kids are INSANE.

Cute cupcake.

You should write down the things the kids say. Art Linkletter made a living at sharing that stuff on "Kids Say the Darnedest Things."

You could write a book!
