PCYC Day 1
This Monday was my first day back at PCYC for this semester. It would have been my second day but two weeks ago was President's Day. I forgot that elementary students have the day off and I spent one hour trying to figure out how to take the bus to get there. After 30 minutes on a bus, (I got lost,) I finally ended up at PCYC to discover that they had no school. (Why don't we get President's Day off?)
My first day went well. I love kids even though they can be crabby and get upset for the littlest thing. I forgot that it wouldn't be as easy dealing with them as it is with my little sisters. It's easy to deal with my sisters because they have to listen to me. These kids really don't care if I say "I'm going to get Dad if you don't stop whining." My sisters have stopped that anyways because they don't like getting in trouble. Do parents tell their kids to stop whining anymore? It doesn't seem like it to me. I was playing with a very cute little girl and she started whining because she wasn't winning at Chutes and Ladders. I calmly told her to stop or else I wouldn't play that game with her anymore, and then tried explaining that it's just a game. After she stopped whining, she began to cheat so she could get ahead of me. Little kids are funny.
After playing, I went helped the second and third graders as they played a math game. After a while of arguing who would go first, they began to play.
Even after the frustrations, I enjoyed seeing all the kids again.
