Kids do the weirdest things. They also make you realize they might be smarter than you think. My job is to help out the smaller kids with their reading, writing, and to help out the teachers once and a while. While my time as a helper has been short I've learned so much from them. I've learned to appreciate what I have now and what I had. Today, I walked in the classroom and the children were on the floor watching a movie, fully energized, and excited for us to show up. While they might have the obvious luxury of not having sleep deprivation from work, carelessness, and innocence, we have the perks of independence and saying restroom instead of "the potty place". We all miss those days and wanted to travel back to a time when we were babies and not have a care in the world again. We didn't appreciate all those naptimes and breaks and now they are gone. Don't make the same mistakes and appreciate things in your life now, be happy, and look on the bright side like these smiling kids.
