The SUPER strategy


I was waiting for all of my clients to come into the classroom this morning when I noticed that there were two kids who hadn't arrived.


You guessed it. George and Steve, who conveniently ride the SAME BUS.


I heard yelling, giggling and the pitter patter of feet running down the hallway. When I looked up I saw George run into the room and strike a pose.


He came to school wearing something like this.






I laughed the WHOLE (@*#& MORNING. He could do NO wrong today -cause every time I looked at him, my whole heart smiled.



And tomorrow? The whole class decided that if it was good enough for George, it was good enough for them.


PJ'S ALL AROUND.

Would totally love to have a *boss* as cool as you so I could show up in my pj's and make his heart smile....

It's a smart mom/teacher/whatever to know when you can't beat them and you SHOULD join them.

I always say, swimming against a rip tides is only going to make you tired.

Well done!

noexcuses said...

Are you taking on any new clients? You are totally awesome to be so understanding and open. Having spent a few years working at a preschool, I saw how much kids enjoyed themselves because they were comfortable in their skin!

Kudos to you!

I remember a fellow student coming to school with his PJ's on under his clothes because he'd overslept and his mom didn't want to wait for him to change.

Oh, yeah...this was in 7th grade.

Captain Dumbass said...

I wonder how my sales would be if I wore Underoos to work?

a Broad said...

茜茜知道他有了外遇
他變得春風滿面,嘴裡總是哼著歌曲
他開始變得有耐心聽她說話、會買禮物給她、甚至帶她出遊
茜茜知道這是因為他對外遇有愧疚
她沒有揭穿丈夫的外遇,甚至享受這樣的生活
茜茜偷偷的跟姐妹滔說:感謝老公的外遇帶來更美好的夫妻生活!

My mum dressed me in pajama's for kindergarten once. She told me it was a fleece tracksuit. I believed her.

A friend told me I was wearing pajamas and that she had the same pair. I argued back and forth with her for quite some time.

When I got home and told my mum about it she was like "Oh, well maybe she's right. I wasn't sure if they were pajamas or not but now we know."

hmmph. I was pretty embarassed

WeaselMomma said...

We should try this as adults!
Only, I'm sure someone who have us locked away.

Cheryl said...

What a fantabulous idea. And yes, I do think they'd love to see you in yours.

SmartBear said...

LOL....love it!
Best,

I wish I still looked that good in my Spiderman jammies.

Aw, pj's and summer reading camp, how perfect! I think George is my son reincarnated (except my son is still alive and would probably still wear those pj's at 22). But he would've had Spidey makeup on his face as well.
No coincidence that the kids at summer reading camp spent so much recess time on the bench I'll bet....they're lucky to have you!!

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

so glad they are making summer school fun for you.

Da na na na na na na na na na...oh wait, that's Batman.FAIL!

This pix reminds me of the time when I was about 8-years-old and I insisted that my parents buy me a yellow matching short/shirt set.

I wore that mess around the neighborhood for two days before I realized they were PJs. I still can't believe the feel of the material didn't tip me off sooner...or my parents.

Who knows, maybe they did know it and were just supporting my creative flair for fashion.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Looks like George's mom picks her battles and today PJs were not going to be the battle. Very cute.

I might wear my pajamas all day today in their honor.

Missy said...

PJ days are the best days at school!

Sarah Garb said...

Children's pajamas are just the FUNNIEST. My class can earn a pajama day at school when they get to 100 class points and the whole day is always just hilarious. One student's Batman pajamas had black, mesh WINGS. Wings on pajamas, people.

I do NOT understand why you don't want to wear your jammies to school. All the kids are doing it ya know...
