I was having some down time with my kinders. They had all come in with VERY runny noses and not feeling good. So I popped in a movie (badzeebadzee) and sat down in a chair in the back.
One of my sicker littles comes up to me and says – I don’t feel good. Can I please sit in your lap?
I’m an old softie. So I told her to climb on. No sooner than she gets situated, another child comes up and says – I want to sit in your lap too.
I tell her I don’t think there is enough room and she informs me I have 2 legs. So up she climbs.
The next thing I know, I have a line of children, waiting their turn. One brings me the kleenex hand sanitizer and we watched Hotel Transylvania 3 and I wiped noses and passed out hand sanitizer.
And now, I have a runny nose and sore throat and feel like crap. And my admin wants to know WHY I was showing movies last week and not teaching.
Well, there was the runny nose brigade, the fact that every one in the beginning of the week was out on field trips so these 4 classes were the only ones that got anything, so I’m letting everyone catch up to them, there’s the Dirge of Death in my family and I”m just tired.
While playing musical knees with my kids, I was reminded of a song that a performer did at Disney World back in the 1970’s. I stumbled on him quite by accident and was enthralled. I saw him many times over the years when we visited the park and I had a habit of going to every show, On one such occasion, he came out early the last show and sat with me and talked and talked. I found him funny, intelligent, personable and extremely talented. Michael Iceberg performed at both Disneys for almost 20 years before retiring due to health reasons. This song stuck in my from the getgo and I always thought it was a great Guy/Genevieve Song. Right now, it’s a great William/Vivienne song. The first time I heard it, I was in tears. It’s beautiful.
Yes I’ve managed to snag the sheet music. And yes, Disney did a sound effect over the curse word. ‘Cuz you know, Disney!
