Somewhat related to last night’s posts about teachers, I don’t know how parents and teachers do it.
I was having my morning coffee and a friend called, and she had a 4 year old daughter and a six year old son. We were having a conversation and in the background there was some blasty ass tv show blaring, one kid doing something, while the four year old was in a chair eating breakfast, banging her spoon off the highchair table, and screaming about sprinkles. My friend was going on like nothing was happening and I just blurted out “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON ARE YOU IN A WAR ZONE ARE YOU CALLING ME FROM CHUCK E CHEESE?”
She just laughed and said “oh I don’t even hear anything” which I know was a lie because she was calmly responding to the screaming child. I finally just said “this is giving me anxiety I feel pressure in my chest I have to go.” I could feel my face and chest get flush and I felt like I was starting to have an anxiety attack.
I don’t know how breeders do it. And I certainly do not know how teachers go into a room with that x25 and deal with it. I’d have a heart attack in the first four hours.
