Join the Two Writing Teachers blog for March Slice of Life Challenge.

I am an adult, and sometimes I just plain take myself too seriously.  The last few days have brought some heavy news: The loss of someone who was once an important mentor to me,  the observation from my administrator in order to give me a score for my teaching expertise, and the necessary surgery for my dog on an infected mole.  The list adds up and weighs on my shoulders.  I start to feel stressed and worried and somewhat out of control.

Then a child, one who faces what comes each day with absolutely no control, comes to me for a hug.  Another child realizes a gift that she has for music is being recognized.  And this child, a first grader, writes a ditty on her blog.  I discovered it when I came home and started checking my Kidblog site.  It brought a smile to my face and lightened my load.  I hope it does the same for you.

 

I look outside, It is flooded. It is not that bad, but it is still flooded. When my mother told me to go get the mail, I could not even get by the mailbox. That is bad! There was water all around the mailbox. It was terribly crazy.  When I saw it from window view, I thought this song up.

It is raining,

It is pouring,

I wish I was snoring,

I wish I were in bed,

So I would not bump my head,

And I would be able to get up in the morning.

Macaroni and Cheeze,

Yes, please!

Goodbye, Popeye!

–Lynzee, 1st grade
