midweek confessions

Wednesdays are confession days, so here goes nothin...

-I am dreading taking Austin to his first dentist appointment.  Austin was a pretty difficult 2 and 3 year old.  Getting a toothbrush in his mouth was no easy task, so we didn't brush his teeth like we should have.  Plus the fact that if it weren't for chips and apple juice(not the best food/drink for your teeth), Austin would probably have to be on a feeding tube, he's such a picky eater.   I know he is going to have a cavity or two.  I think I'll make Brent take him, so he can get the reprimand from the Dentist. 

-One of the things I dislike about my job is talking with my "not so good students" parents.  I know that sounds bad.  It's not that I dislike them, I just never know how they will react to the bad news that their kid is misbehaving or failing.  Will they be surprise?  Will they make excuses?  Will they blame me?

I hate giving bad news.   My motto for as long as I can remember has been "avoid confrontation!"  It scares me. 

-I went to three movies and one play in the span of three days.  That is crazy for me. 

-I watched my brother act in a play this past weekend at the Lake Charles Little Theatre.  This is his third play and after every one I secretly wish I could be on stage performing.  Then I return to the real world and realize that acting does not really fit my personality.  It looks like fun though.

What are your confessions?

  2. I always wondered if teachers got anxiety attacks when it comes to talking with parents. I'm SUCH a confrontation avoider - which makes being a child protection social worker a tad difficult... not many parents like seeing me at their door; I try to sandwich the bad news with 2 goods ;)

  4. I HATE calling parents. I prefer email by 1000% BUT my school population is mostly English Language Learners (and the parents speak even less English) and we are a school of poverty so a lot of the parents don't have email.
