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.

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.

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...

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!!

Pseudo 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.

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...

The paper presents a modified ant colony optimization approach for the network coding resource minimization problem. It is featured with several attractive mechanisms specially devised for solving the network coding resource minimization problem: 1) a multi dimensional pheromone maintenance mechanism is put forward to address the issue of pheromone overlapping; 2) problem specific heuristic information is employed to enhance the heuristic search Coach Handbags Clearance (neighboring area search) capability; 3) a tabu table based path construction method is devised to facilitate the construction of feasible (link disjoint) paths New Jordan Shoes 2020 from the source to each receiver; 4) a local pheromone updating rule is developed to guide ants to construct appropriate promising paths; 5) a solution reconstruction method is presented, with the aim of avoiding prematurity and improving the Coach Outlet Store global search efficiency of proposed algorithm. Due to the way it works, the ant colony optimization can well exploit the global and local information of routing related problems during the solution construction phase.

Graphene grown by high temperature molecular beam epitaxy on Coach Outlet hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) forms continuous domains with dimensions of order 20 m, and exhibits moir patterns with large periodicities, up to 30 nm, indicating that the layers are highly strained. Topological defects in the moir New Jordan Shoes 2020 patterns are observed and attributed to the relaxation of graphene islands which nucleate at different sites and subsequently coalesce. In addition, cracks are formed leading to strain relaxation, highly anisotropic Yeezy Discount strain fields, and Coach Outlet Store abrupt boundaries between regions with different moir periods.
