On Aunt Mildred's Porch Has Not Left the Building

I can't even believe how long it has been since I've posted.  I have no good excuse except that I just haven't had time to write.  I have no extra things going on, so I don't know what is happening, but my blog seems to be the last thing on my mind.

I have, however, been very active on instagram and I think this is what happens to a lot of bloggers.  It's instant, it's easy and doesn't require as much thinking.  Please be sure to follow me on instagram.  I am @onauntmildredsporch there as well.  It's pretty exciting, all my videos and pictures of asinine thing in my life! 

Summer is almost here and I will have more time for blogging soon.  Maybe I will get my mojo back and bring you to your knees laughing at my perspective on things.

In the meantime, here are some things that have been said in my classroom or which I've heard from the classroom next door.  You can sure tell it's the end of the year....

--Is that tape on your mouth?  Take it off!!

--Are you in kindergarten?  Then why are you behaving like that?!?

--Oh, did you earn Ms. A. today?  (That means the child earned time with that adult on that day, which for that child is a big deal- imagine being "earned".  That doesn't happen in the real world, does it?)

--All I should see on your table is your person.

--Seriously???????  (I can't even count the number of times both my neighboring teacher and I say this in a day....)

It's June.  And it's.  so. June.   I don't know how I made it to June 30th last year.  We only have until June 22nd this year and if someone doesn't end up maimed, I'll get an award, I swear.
