I love the idea of WIMTS Wednesday that I found today. I am playing along, although I will warn you that it's not very happy-go-lucky.
When my friend made the comment that I was “starting be just like her as a mom,” and I replied, “I guess in a way I suppose.” WIMTS was “Please don’t insult me like that.”
And then on a more serious note… It was a rough day today. Our school hosted an event and didn’t have school, but staff had to “guard doors.” These WIMTS were from today
When stranger-man in the hall today looked at my teary-eyed face and said, “gee is sitting here that bad?” and I said, “nope” and smiled. WIMTS was “F-you, I just found out that one of my student’s father died this morning and you should move away from me now before I get up outta this chair and beat you senseless.”
When one of the nice young men I am proud to call my student looked at my teary-eyed face in the hall today and said “Are you okay? Can I give you a hug?” and I said “I’m doing alright, thanks for asking, how are you doing?” WIMTS was “Thank you, I needed that. Kids like you are why I do this job and you mean a lot to me…now see that guy over there? Will you go kick his butt?”
Sorry to be a downer as I played along today, but I’m hoping writing about it will help me feel better. Plus I have so many WIMTS moments that I hope to play along again.
Editing to add something here: I didn't actually hug the kid...I'm not a hugger, especially not a teenage boy hugger. Plus he was sorta joking with me b/c I make it pretty clear that I don't like people touching me (only exception the hubs, Roo and my parents), I avoided the reception line at both my hs graduation and my wedding, but that's a whole nother post!
