a momentary lapse of patience

My school concert is in 8 days. I am officially at the point where my expectations are through the roof and my patience is on the floor. I know that I’m pushing my kids but I try to temper all of the pushing with reaffirmations of how much they are loved.

My kids are so wonderful. I can’t believe that I get to go to school every day and teach responsive, motivated, and caring kids. They are not perfect and they are exceedingly blessed–but they work hard.

As the days click by, I must work so hard to find ways to keep praising them when I’m losing my patience with them and most of all, myself.
