Another day at the OFFICE??

My office is a big room with bright blue walls, cloud curtains, miniature tables and chairs, toys everywhere and a bunch of screaming kids. Today was a particularly hectic day. I don't know if it was the cold drizzly day or what they had for breakfast, but the kids were going wild. Sometimes I wonder about my job. The kids bite, hit, spit in your face, scream, lick your leg (yes this actually happened today), scratch, and sneeze all over you! One of the kids didn't want to wash his hands because he didn't like the smell of the soap when his hands smelled like poop and dirt! Another one will tell me I'm her best friend in the whole world and then turn around and punch me because I stopped her from hitting our littlest one on the head with a block!! I do not remember being like this when I was a kid. I remember being afraid of of teachers and bigger kids! Not these ones! Yesterday, a college student was walking by our playground and one of the kids insisted on throwing a ball at him! Before I could stop it, it happened. I asked the kid why he would want to throw the ball at someone and he said because it would be funny if it hit him in the head. Luckily he missed and the guy was nice enough to throw it back over. 
My job can definitely be chaotic but kids will be kids! I work with the 3 and 4 year olds and most of them are going through their "terrible" stages. But it is totally worth it when you can just sit there with one of them and have a conversation. They say the funniest things! They are so innocent and can be very sweet. I am grateful to be able to work with these kids. It gives me a taste of what it is going to be like when I have my own kids!! I can't wait!
