  1. You nailed it, Kristy! I see myself all over this list. Thank God for SmartBoards and digital pens–that makes me a bit cleaner when I get home these days (though not much). I think we may be the only profession on the planet full of people who steal office supplies from home to take to work!

  2. So true, Kristy! I've taken to calling all my kids my "personal" kids and my "kids." As far as #10 goes, I remember getting a long swipe of green marker across my face one day. I had no idea until late that night. I can't believe not one student told me I had marker on my face!
    Thanks for the laughs!

  3. Happy to say I've never come home with vomit on me, but the bag thing is true. I have a crate on wheels AND two book bags. It takes me two hours to leave on Fridays – I'm so afraid of leaving something behind.
