Today was my turn to do roster duty at Amy’s playschool. Jess used to call it “Judy” and we’d always wonder who this Judy woman was! So anyway, it was a good chance to see the littlies in action. As the teacher said to me this morning, Sam and Amy would be content all day if they had food, things to play with and each other. There is such a wide range of maturity levels and capabilities. I thought Amy was “up” there, but perhaps not after hearing this conversation…
Teacher: What are you going to be when you grow up?
Boy: Monster Truck Driver
Girl: Trickery (ie a Magician)
Boy: A scientist
Amy: A butterfly
Sam: A ballerina.
Oh dear! At least they are having fun 🙂
Some other news just to hand is that the Hospital job that has been going to happen for the past year, has finally happened. I got a call yesterday about it and they are considering only my “expression of Interest” and when could I start? After some negotiating with Justin, and then with them about the hours I think we have come to some agreement. Exciting times as this is a new position and it is basically building this new department form scratch. Scary and daunting as well, but I think I am up for it.
Holly has hounded me for a ‘party’ with some friends including a bunch of boys. She has a mad crush on a particular boy which is very much reciprocated, so I am entering unchartered territory here. We are keeping the communication lines open and she knows how to behave, so I have agreed to this little shindig. They want music, movies and pizza. Sounds OK to me!! I will be keeping a very close eye on that bunch though 🙂
Time is ticking away. My day off is quickly drawing to a close, so better get a move on with some housework.
