I am not making this stuff up...

Today was the Band Breakfast Party. I love that I get to treat my students after a year of hard work :) I know that they're getting a lot out of the program as it is, but this is just a simple gesture to say thanks for a year of before-school rehearsals, hundreds of practice minutes, and making the class a true joy. I spent two and a half hours making 84 Belgian waffles last night for the party. The kids were so excited :)

After the party was over, I was cleaning up and decided to move the leftovers to the Teacher's Room. My colleagues would surely enjoy the waffles (and they wouldn't all go to waste). That's when I noticed that there was already a little breakfast tray set up. That's no surprise; there is always food in the Teacher's Room. But the surprising part was that the breakfast was sponsored by the "Preggo Posse" of our school. Providing a thank you breakfast was really a sweet gesture, but you can imagine how it made me feel to see that sign. 

Signs explaining the treats in the Teacher's Room
One of the "Preggos" insisted that I add my name to the sign saying that the waffles, donuts, and fruit were brought in by me and not them. I didn't want to mess up their cute sign, so I added the post-it. The "Not Preggo!!" was an after-thought. A colleague saw the post-it before I added that and said, "Wait... you're pregnant?!?" Oh, no. That shit is going to stop right there. Let's make this perfectly clear that I am NOT pregnant. For now, I have to be happy with being in the "Wanna-be Preggo Posse."

::eyes rolling::


  1. I'm rolling my eyes with our little red guy shaking his fists!!!I absolutely LOVE your post-it though!!! RAWRRRRRRRRR.

  2. OMG Your post-it was pretty witty though!

  3. The "Preggo Posse"?? Ugh, that actually pisses me off on your behalf. That's ridiculous. I'm so sorry you are being confronted with crap like that while at work! Good for you taking a positive stance on it.

    1. I've been doing a pretty good job of avoiding them. Thankfully there are only 2 more days left of school before summer vacation. I was catching up on my work emails today, and flipped off the evite to the baby shower before I could process what I was doing. I guess I have a bit of pent up aggression on the topic, lol
