Ok, so my last two serious blog posts have been pretty rant-filled, and after laughing my head off reading Baby Rabies' blog, I remember some of the fun I wanted to have actually writing this blog, even if most people don't read it. So, I will now recount to you what I pretty much live for every day I go to work.
Besides the children. That's just a given. This is bonus.
I love to mess with my boss. She is absolutely hilarious to tease. She's a middle-aged lady, even though she calls herself old, and has such a wonderful sense of humour. Being the owner/head teacher/assistant in a preschool is really stressful, so I help by spending little moments of my day making her laugh.
One of my favourite ways is to stand outside her office window (which is directly across from the door of my classroom) and make faces at her until she looks. The other is to stand directly behind her when she's talking to another teacher. Once she was talking to the teacher for over a minute, even hit me in the boob, and still didn't realise I was there until the teacher she was talking to couldn't keep from laughing.
I don't know what it is that makes me want to tease her like that. Maybe it's because I know she'll laugh, and maybe because it's just so dang easy! She reminds me of my mom, the way I can take what she says or does and use it to tease her, and all she can do is laugh and try to hit me. I have good reflexes :D. And because I know she'd never really hit me. Hard, anyway.
This is key, because I love to take advantage of the backup camera she has in her new Kia Sportage and dance or do something crazy when she starts backing up. She always cracks up laughing!
I work with some awesome ladies, I tell you. It's not just the children I go to work for. If it wasn't for an equally wonderful staff of teachers that I work with, there's no way that I could enjoy my job so very much! I would never work somewhere to make more money if it meant working in a hostile, gossiping, spiteful atmosphere. Having fun with my coworkers and especially my boss is definitely the highlight to every working day!
