"Did your mom drive you to school today?"
Apparently the kids can't quite grasp how old I am, because they ask questions like this and seem to find the fact that I am engaged amazing. We took a field trip today, and since the four parents who volunteered to chaperone didn't show up I got to have my own group of 7th grade hooligans. Very cute, but very much like herding cats. Obviously haven't developed any sense yet, as they were constantly getting into things after being told not to and one of them even spit on another one of the students. On the up side, I'm feeling a lot more confident around the kids. I'm an authority figure now, damnit!
