TST: More from Nebalee

Nebalee is helping me out with this week's TST from Rachel and Mr. Daddy.  She's got an abundance of patience with her second graders.  There's a reason I teach at the college level.

OH, what do my wandering eyes see…

...But 7 out of my 9 second grade girls with gloopy streaks of fluorescent rainbows in their hair. Yes, that’s right: pink, orange, and yellow highlights that would blind the blindman. I opened the door for my class after recess and what a treat. (Now, I’m not talking a little marker fun. I’m talking hair paint as thick as mud and colored like the Easter bunny puked.) I’m quite a transparent person so the displeasure on my face was all that was needed.

“ My, oh my, do we have a little situation here girls. Hope you like what you look like because you get to explain that to mommy and daddy.” Instead of marching them to the bathroom, I marched them to music and wished that lovely vocalist good luck.

The most fun was kicking them out of the bathroom after music. They thought reading time would be a good time to bathe in the bathroom sinks. Nope. You ladies head back to class. You have some reading to do. As I counted heads, I realize one is missing…my most vibrant child.

I found her in the nurse’s office. She had convinced the nurse to glove up and start scrubbing. In I walk to unleash a new round of fun. I smiled politely and asked her to quit scrubbing for this child is going home looking like this. She is not going to miss her reading group because of a little sticky recess fun. That mess is going home.

School wasn’t out but 6 minutes when I received the first call. Let the fun begin!

LOL! That's a hoot! I bet they don't do that again? What exactly did they put in their hair (that they had access to at recess)?

Mrs Mom said...

Beth - one of the girls brought it from home.
