We'd all be labeled with A.D.D
Every last one of us.
Oh - look what I did
Oh - Oh - look what I made
Oh Oh Oh - come see what I found
OMG - you're going to go crazy when you see this
We'd be jumping up and down at our little desks, all screaming and squealing with delight
and coveting what the little girl next to us was making or doing - or painting - or.................
We'd frantically be drawing pictures of things we loved and putting them in scrapbooks so that we could look at them over and over again.
At recess we'd be showing off our snacks - our very pretty snacks
At lunch time we'd be beaming with pride as beautiful goodness fell out of our lunch boxes..............
We'd have slumber parties where every one would ooooh and ahhhh over the gorgeous linens and matching curtains ( created out of drop cloths ) as we all gathered in a circle to create wreaths with the left over remnants.
While other little girls were painting actual pictures - we'd be painting the Teacher's desk - and distressing it slightly for authenticity - and the more ambitious of us would do all the student's desks in complimentary colors.
If our shoes got scuffed we'd cover them with Duct Tape and create little masterpieces as we danced our ways down the hall.
Stickers would mysteriously go missing from Teacher's supplies - and show up covering the lunch room walls
Ink pads would be " borrowed " on a frequent basis to decorate chairs with
We'd all be going through the trash cans at the end of the day frantically salvaging old rulers.
Instead of filling little egg cartons with seeds - we'd landscape the entire grounds
After we brought the Teacher an apple - we'd ask if we could take photos of it
Well they just wouldn't know what hit them
The Teachers would turn around to write something on it - and there before their very eyes would be
exquisitely written recipes - or scripture or Welcome Spring - or Fall or Winter ( summer they'd remain nice and clean since we wouldn't be there )
AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF OUR REPORT CARDS WOULD READ:
LITTLE blank ( insert name here ) HAS ONE OF THE SEVEREST CASES OF A.D.D. I'VE YET TO SEE IN MY CAREER.
We call it blogging
Welcome to our world !
Don't knock it
Annie Sloan must have been one of those little girls stealing CHALK from the Teachers - maybe she started off mixing it with her milk at lunch - but look what she created !
P.S.S. - Oh Oh Oh !!!! Look what I got - I almost forgot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
See Suzan jump up and down
See Suzan whip out her paints
See Suzan plaster it all over the internet when it's done
Hey - it beats medication any day of the week :)
Have a great Thursday one and all
Partying here ( join me? )
