What mind picture do you have when you hear that phrase? Well, let me share my mind picture with you. They hit the ground running, they don't come when you call, and when you put twelve of them in one space all hell breaks loose.
What are these creatures?
Three year olds.
And what was I trying to do with them?
Today I found a new respect for pre-school teachers. Seriously. It is crowd control at it's finest. If you can get twelve of them to go the same direction at the same time while not talking you have managed an incredible feat. People who can do this with ease should be in charge of FEMA. We don't need big name government officials planning evacuations and disaster relief, we need pre-school teachers.
Anyway.......all in all I think our first practice went ok. I survived, the kids survived, and I think most of them had fun.
I think though, when this 4 week stint is over, I shall retire.
