#SoCS August 7, 2021 – Wee

Hello Peeps! It’s been a long while, but I thought i’d get back on the SoCS horse, so to speak, since I am on summer break!

Linda’s prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness SaYour Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wee.” Use the word “wee” or find a word that contains it and use it in your post. Have fun!

Oh, Linda, what a great word ‘wee‘ is, all in itself! I don’t really need to look for another, to be honest!

As a teacher, there will always be the toilet stories, and with me as an Early Years teacher, there are plenty.

We’ve dealt with little accidents, where a mis-aim has dampened clothes, to full on flooding (I mean, seriously where do these children hold in so much wee? They are tiny, so should their bladders be, yet when they go, oh, my, it’s like a waterfall!)

There’s the sneaky ones, where they are too shy to ask, and they calmly get up and go, leaving a telltale puddle on a seat, or worse, a wet patch on the carpet! I’ve even seen children so engrossed in their play that they don’t even notice the stream tricking down their legs, until they are saturated, and then, embarrased…

But, you kinda understand. They are little, they are still learning about control. By a few months into the new school year, most children are more aware of the expectation of toilet etiquette in school…

And, joy, in September, I’ll be presented with a new cohort, with not a clue, and so the prospect of more wee incidents… Great!

    I started my teaching career with pre K and K. There were always wee stories. When many year later I moved from elementary to middle school, I foolishly assumed there would be no more wee stories. I was wrong. A frightened 6th grader had an accident the first week of school. Oy vey.

    I guess for you, Ritu, it really is part of the job. Michael was so easy to train. On his 2nd birthday he took his nappy off and that was that. No accidents.
