I have to, literally, drag this same child out of bed at 6:40 every weekday morning so that I can force her into clothes and the car to make it to daycare (and, you know, work) on time.
But today! Today is a 2 hour delay day! And because Natalie is asleep & unaware of weather patterns & school closing policies, she is still blissfully conked out on a Thursday morning at 6:50am while I enjoy a second cup of coffee. It’s going to baffle her to wake up on her own, and I am so happy she really gets a chance to enjoy a full night’s sleep without me waking forcefully waking her up. Also? I don’t mind the 2 hour delay to my workday and the quiet time in my warm house while the wind howls outside.
Because no post is complete without some sort of complaint–I am a bit bummed that all of the work I put into preparing for my scheduled formal observation may go to waste. First period today was my scheduled time to be observed…. and now I will likely have to reschedule. Booooo.
