As Child Life Specialists and Child Life students, we know that our successes do not run on an empty tank or with a grouchy individual….nope!
Substitute teaching is hard. End of story. And while most classes are lovely and wonderful, some drive you into the ground. And when 5 teachers you see mention in the hall “we’re praying for you”, you know it HAS TO BE bad. So, it wasn’t a gold shining day and I did things I wasn’t proud of, so instead of taking another job for tomorrow, it’s a self care day instead.
Oh but the day off will of course be spent doing all things Child Life. And, the house will actually be silent. #glorious
