    This brought tears to my eyes - of joy because we know we're not alone and hilarity because it's just the brutal truth. And you know the other staff sees you with the wheelchair and they all say "oh no!!" as you pass and you can't help but think "this is just going to be a load of nonsense..."
    Flare- You are so funny and so true. You usually take the words right out of my mouth! But, as we are thinking "this is just going to be a load of nonsense" a lot of the kiddos...especially the starry eyed littles think we are something extra special. On that note- today is an extra fun day! I am not at his school today. But, where my kindergarten grandson goes to school --- today is Real Life Super Hero Day! and guess who he wanted to dress up as??!! Me/Granny. I was so happy to pull my stethoscope out of my bag and have him to wear it for the day. His mom, on the other hand, was afraid he would lose it or something would happen to it. Nope, not worried about that, I am more than thrilled to hand it over to him for the day.

    I use my wheelchair a few times a week if you couldn't tell [/QUOTE]

    My first few years at my school, I would get called out of the clinic maybe once a month or so. This year, almost EVERY DAY!!! So, I feel your pain.

    And I get called during passing period every blessed time with 1300 kids in the same hallway. The adult oooh and ahhh but none help me open a door or try to clear a path for me while.

    In the olden days I could say, "you girls are looking mighty pretty in pink!" but it's not the olden days and I could land up in jail for such a statement so I'm not going to say it...but I'll still think it
    You can say it, We're friends.

    2nd grader with a tiny bit of blood trickling from nose: "When I opened my locker one of my rocks fell out and hit me in the nose"
    I have sooo many questions! Why rocks? Multiple rocks? How large are these rocks? Why are there so many that they cause an avalanche when you open your locker?!
    I gave her a tissue and told her to excavate her locker!

    Quote from JenTheSchoolRN
    I love when I get a phone call from a teacher reporting that a student is vomiting in the bathroom. Mainly because it is usually like "so what should I do?" or "Don't you need to come up to help?"

    My response is always the same. "Thank you for letting me know. When the student is done, you can sent them my office." I'm not running upstairs to hold a student's hair back. That is not helpful in any way, especially for a MS or HS student.
    THIS!!

    Why do teachers assume that we are going to come running with lights and sirens every time someone vomits?! It's a natural thing, everyone does it!! When they are done, send them my way, but I don't need to witness it!

    So true -- and even after you have retrieved the student and every adult you pass starts making obligatory sympathetic sounds when 1) it is nothing or 2) you have finally just gotten the child to calm down and acknowledge they are fine (esp. if they are the dramatic type who like and respond strongly to that attention in the form of waterworks) and you want to say "shhhh stop!!"

    Today is jingle bell day. JINGLE. BELL. DAY.

    Lord, beer me strength. I am starting to twitch every time I hear a bell.

    Which ever teacher thought of this needs a good shin kick.

    I'm just waiting for the kids who have ringing in their ears.

    All the symptoms that seem to cause paralysis in a child (requiring the school nurse to run as fast as the wind with the wheelchair because darling just cant walk).

    1. Spitting up phlegm
    2. Superficial abrasion to knee
    3. Slammed finger in locker
    4. Actual vomit
    5. Nausea
    6. Spilled milk on pants (not made up, I promise)

    Sick enough to stay home, sick enough to miss the concert. That's my rule of thumb.

    That's nuts! You shouldn't be expected to find your own coverage-- you're not the one planning them!
    Most of us have to find our own subs too if we ever, God forbid, need a day off. No one else has to do that.
