Rolling with the punches!

Coming off of my birthday weekend, I went back to work with more energy than I thought I would have. It was a good thing too, even though only 8 of our ten kids came in today, they were all so moody and needing attention every time they had a little bump or could not get their way! But some how, we still managed to have a little fun. *sigh* Nap time went better than usual for some and not so good for others. One little boy, who usually puts up a good fight before dropping off to sleep, sang my name until he fell asleep (which was very fast considering for the past couple of weeks it took me up to 30 - 40 minutes to put him to sleep!) As for the other child, she took way longer than usual to go to sleep fighting and crying the whole time despite the fact she was really tired! *sigh* I was ready for a nap by the time she did drop off to sleep. She is an angel when she's sleeping, so cute! The day got better after nap and snack. Unfortunately, due to ratio requirements, I didn't get off of work until a quarter after :( But, all's well that ends well :) the children were happy when I left!
