Pulling Heartstrings

Sometimes these kids just pull at my heartstrings. Like when they cry during lunch because there’s no more mac and cheese, when they’re scared of the fire alarm going off during a fire drill and you just want to pull them close and hug them tight, when they’re crying for their mommy because they miss them, when they make that face when they’re about to cry, or when they stomp their feet out of frustration or anger to let you know that they don’t like it. Although I shouldn’t be saying this, because my co-teacher and I have to deal with it almost everyday, they look so cute doing it ❤ :3 . But we just got to take a deep breath and assure them it’s ok. Pat ourselves on the back and tell ourselves that it’s ok.

It’s ok.

It’s ok. 

And keep on going 🙂.

Aside

The other day, my mentor teacher accidentally let out that I have a month left of student teaching. The whole class is devastated. Especially this one little guy who thinks everyday is my last day. He is constantly hugging me, holding my hand, staying close to me. Yesterday, he followed me halfway back before I realized he was walking right behind me. I asked, “where are you going?” And he said, “I want to go with you. I don’t want you to leave ” And then I told him I’m not leaving today! And then he’s like “Oh!” and walked back to music. That kid just melts my heart sometimes
