Wanna know why? It's because Mother's Day is this weekend and I haven't had my class make any Mother's Day gifts or cards. See . . . I'm truly horrible. Part of it is that anything beyond construction paper and crayons would have to come out of my personal bank account. And as a sub I'm just not seeing the cash flow to justify spending $30 to $40 on crafty supplies or kits. Also, my file folder of fun little cutesy things to do is packed away in one of about 20 boxes of school stuff in the garage. But even more importantly, I've had the class just so busy trying to get our projects ready for our learning fair coming up later this month. Mostly though I'm just avoiding the whole thing because I'm trying really hard to not think about how absolutely horrid Mother's Day was for me last year, just 4 days after my D&C.
However, even as I type this the guilt is starting to kick in. I guess I'll be hauling out the construction paper and crayons tomorrow so that the kids can create some type of masterpiece.
