Here's Why I'm Damn Sure I Could Never Be A Preschool Teacher

God bless their brave, brave souls.

5. Because the overshares are REAL.


Preschool teachers can't unhear the private deets your kids have told them – about what you and your partner were arguing about last night, that you're considering lipo, whose poop is the stinkiest in your house – even though they might really want to.


10. Because if you think it's hard dealing with all your threenager's um, "feelings", try dealing with the feelings of 20 of 'em.


Feelings about Wednesdays, feelings about the color blue, feelings about carrots for snack-time today, you're swimming in an ocean full of them.


14. Oh, and all those freakin' songs you have to sing.


There's a "good morning" song, a "goodbye" song, a "parents always come back" song, a "Jamie's throwing sand" song – I'm hoarse just thinking about it.
