An almost 40 yr old should not do what a 5 yr old can do!

Hey ya~  So I thought I might share a little embarrassing real life moment I had at work today...

So, I'm a preschool teacher, right.  Most days, when it's especially nice out, we have a second "recess" time on the play ground.  I am usually that teacher that will run around like a doofus "scaring" the kids, tickling them til the fall to the ground in laughter, slide with them.. you get the picture. This, was just an ordinary day.  We were all out on the pebble filled play ground and the kids wanted me to play tag. Ok, sure. It was pretty close to pick up time, parents were already waiting in their cars~ watching the kids play, and I thought I'd run these little buggers before they went home. Smart teacher. {insert a high five} So, I proceed to chase kids, they chase me, I chase them.. you get it. A normal game of tag.  It was my turn to be "it" and I thought I'd outsmart these smarties that always seem to gang up on me when I'm not "it".. even thought there is only ONE "it" person! ;)   So I walked up the stairs onto the playscape and watched.... They were all taunting me with the whole "you can't get me.. you can't get me..."  [Oh yea!!! We'll just see about that!]  So I catch this one kid coming up the stairs out of my periphery.  As I turn around to face him he goes flying down the slide laughing... So, naturally, I go flying down the slide laughing... proceeding then to run after him.  Well. That's when my fast moving world changed a bit. My feet got firmly planted in the thickness of the rocks and hole the smarty pants had been digging!   Now, if you know ANYTHING at about Newton's Law of Motion (you know... a body in motion stays in motion... that whole thing) then you have your visual.  My feet stopped dead in their tracks in the hole... but my body... yeah. It kept on a' goin!  This is precisely why an almost 40 yr old should not do what a 5 yr old can do!

  2. Shut up, shut up, shut up!

    Oh, my God.

    I hate to laugh...but oh, my GOD!

    I can laugh because I find myself in situations like that and they are completely impossible to get out of without looking like you know you're jacked but doing your best to look like you're not jacked.

    Sister, I've done it.

    Once. I was putting gas in my car. I went to step over the hose while it was pumping.

    I tripped.

    Right there. Under the big bright lights (cause it was at night). I couldn't catch myself either.

    My stomach TOUCHED the concrete I went that flat.

    I'm an idiot.

    You though are precious. And thank you for this giggle. I can't stop now.

  4. Oh man......how embarrassing!

    I'm the queen of falling down. I believe that it's the reason that God gave me an ample backside. To cushion the fall....

  5. This made me totally LOL til I was nearly in tears with my 2.5 yr old saying "Don't cry mommy, don't cry" as I interrupted her watching Caillou... This is just hilarious and seriously cute, I hope when she starts school that she has a teacher just like you! :)
