Water Day!

You know that person that drives you crazy (and not in a good way) and does everything backwards, making no sense whatsoever? Yeah, well I work with her. I just have to keep telling myself two more months, two more months, two more months....Then she'll be gone! Well not forever but I won't have to work with her everyday because she's stepping down.
Anyhoo, we had "water day" at work today. My favorite day. It's crazy right before with getting suits on and getting all sunscreened up, but it's worth it. Picture this: 15 three- and four-year-olds running around with spray bottles, watering cans, and soaker balls. Oh yeah, and a huge beach ball sprinkler shooting out in all directions. Then me, chasing them around and forcing them into the sprinkler. Don't worry, they giggle away the whole time!
And the best part: they sleep soundly for an hour and a half shortly thereafter.
Ah yes...I love Thursdays.

So that's what you do for work? Huh. Must be great to enjoy the weather.

It stills boggles my mind the life of day care kids. When you first mentioned about getting all those kids down for naps it sounds so institutionalized. I mean putting them all down, rubbing this one's back until their asleep, patting this ones, that one goes to sleep on her own, etc. It's hard to imagine a room full of toddlers napping!

*REALLY* hard to imagine. (I can't even get *three* down!) :)

I can hardly get my one baby to take a nap, let alone a roomful of toddlers! Water day sounds fun though!
