Hey it's OK......

One of my favorite columns in Glamour magazine is their "Hey it's ok" piece every month. While blowdrying my hair this morning, I decided to do a teacher version...

Hey it's OK....

to be in bed by 9:00 8:00 every night...

to just cut out the pieces yourself...

to consider Clorox wiping everything down a "deep clean"

to say "no"

to have Diary of a Wimpy Kid partially memorized. I don't care what anyone says, Jeff Kinney is some kind of literary genius. #sorrynotsorry

to want Starbucks gift cards any chance you might get a teacher gift... It's 90% of your diet anyway. A woman's got to eat drink right?

to never get your water intake... seriously, who has time to go to the bathroom?

to have to teach yourself the math you are about to teach...

to eat chocolate and popcorn with as your lunch everyday...

if your version of cleaning is "piles"

to still not know what all those acronyms stand for...

to get outfit ideas from that really fashionable 7-year-old...

to have more overdue library books than all your students... combined... they know where to find you...

to own 284 pairs of shoes, and still wear the same comfortable ones

to either have a clean classroom OR a clean house... who needs both?

to pass on the blue or orange or purple cupcake, but to make a promise to yourself to never pass up an opportunity to eat the chocolate sprinkle donut any time it makes an appearance in your classroom. It's all about balance right?

to make mistakes. just forgive yourself now. you have about 9,492,371 to make, and you will learn from of them.

Muah! my wonderful teachers...
