the kind of nightmare

friday night i dreamed that the bathrooms in our school were all out of order and the school system announced that they didn't have the money to fix them so they put porta-potties in where the bathrooms use to be.
besides the fact that it smelled horrible in our classrooms, the actual nightmare part of the dream was that none of the kindergartners wanted to use the porta-potties (would you?)

in my dream i was dealing with wet pants after wet pants as it became socially acceptable in the class to pee in your pants instead of using the porta-potties. the urine flowed and there was nothing my partner in crime and i could do about it.

the worst part, other than the children peeing all over themselves, was that the nurse was really angry with us for the large amount of pee.

it was awful.

where did it come from? budget cuts? an underlying fear of children who wet their pants? i don't even have anyone (knock on wood) that is having a chronic problem with pant wetting this year.

Are you trying something new with the kinders this year (learning strategy, schedule...) that you (secretly) worry might fail?
