  1. Guys....!

    I'm late to the game but we had 7 inches in my Atlanta suburb last Friday & Saturday. Such a rare occurrence down here! It was beautiful. But we had tree limbs falling everywhere in my neighborhood and power was out at my house for 48 hours and I...
  2. C'Mon Now!

    I constantly get a complaint like, "my stomach is hurting," or "my head is hurting," etc.. When I ask how long this issue has been going on they'll say, "since math" or "it started when I was leaving recess" as if I have every student schedule memori...
  3. C'Mon Now!

    Arrggghhh!!! I had a kid come by to tell me her lips hurt yesterday and I had such a Napoleon Dynamite moment! My lips are killing me. Gah!!
  4. C'Mon Now!

    Kid: My tooth really hurts and it's loose. I'm worried it's not a baby tooth. Me: Did you bump it into something? Kid: I bit down on a jawbreaker about 3 days ago? Me: Did you tell your mom? Kid: Yeah, but she's not really into teeth. And my dad is a...
  5. That's So Fetch! (Pink Wednesdays)

    I've literally been wearing black or gray for the past 3 weeks. Is that sign of depression? The string on my gray scrub pants is pink. Does that count?
  6. We've talked about this a million times...

    I have a 3rd grade teacher with diagnosing abilities. She's fresh out of school so she's roughly 23 years old. She sends notes down with her kids that say: "I saw a lice bug jump out of Suzy's hair. She has a lice infestation." "Anna has a mild concu...
  7. It's Monday and let the shenanigans began...

    Every year just before Christmas break the clinic excuses are just wacko. I had a 7th grader with a "pulled eye muscle." And a 1st grade frequent (daily) flyer who had pain behind his knee. He said he had an x-ray over the weekend, couldn't remember ...
  8. "My Mom's a Nurse......

    Funny...when my daughter is sick I say I'm a nurse. I want her docs to be straight with me and tell me like it is. But when other family members are in the hospital the first thing is say is, "don't you dare tell them I'm a nurse!!" followed by, "oh,...
  9. I've always been a Matt Lauer fan and hoped these allegations weren't true. It turns out he's an absolute creep. Matt Lauer Accused of Sexual Harassment by Multiple Women (EXCLUSIVE) – Variety
  10. "My Mom's a Nurse......

    Can I just say it? My nurse moms are the WORST. I have one that always challenges my "method" or says she's much too busy to come pick up her sick child. You know, her job is much more important than parenting. Her daughter has been sick multiple tim...
  11. We are getting a therapy dog!

    Ok, I just cracked up when you said "she's interviewing dogs today." Am I the only one who's picturing dogs waiting in a lobby holding their file folder with their resume? Or sitting at a desk, legs crossed, answering questions about their 5 year pla...
  12. Christmas Gifts for Staff.

    I promise not to key your car or slash your tires on that last half day before break, teachers. Merry Christmas!
  13. How do you get over the boredom/monotony?

    I haven't taken a lunch break in 4 years so...you're more than welcome to come down here & let me catch up on those.
  14. First day back

    Urgh. I took a day off a few weeks ago only to get a call from my ex who said, "the kid isn't feeling good but I sent her to school and told her to go see the nurse if she starts to feel worse." I was all, " YOU!! You of all people should know not to...
  15. The Not So "Nursey" Things...

    I repair eye glasses, clean dog poop off kids, shoes, footballs and anything else, I keep spare uniform pieces for the times that kids are out of uniform or have bathroom emergencies or spills, I hem or repair uniforms when there's a uniform rip or t...
