I’m like th only one willing to do this…
Sitting in my car, I had a feeling that no other teacher would be in costume. My mind also thought maybe I should have worn my witch hat- easier to worry about. Don’t need to worry if any of the makeup smears because I can just wear some eye shadows, liner, mascara, and lipstick. Then, place a hat on my head. Also, I could just remove it all if I’m the only one wearing something.
Walking into the building, I was greeted by a surprised assistant director. I could see she didn’t expect me in a costume. I walked to the classroom to find the teacher wasn’t in one either. My cousin’s cousin smiled and loudly called me a tiger, while other kids called me a cat or a kitty.
Outside picture for the entire classrooms, I saw no one in anything but uniform- except kids. Usually in this situation, I would be very ashamed, down, nervous, etc. But the kids reactions made me not care. They loved seeing my face all cat-like. The older kids- some of the girls kept asking me, “Did you use eyeliner for the whiskers?” Other kids kept saying I’m a cat or a kitty. One even said I should have put on a tail! I did have a tail. But I lost the headband so didn’t want to wear the tail without that.
It’s something different. I’ve been this way ever since working at the other daycare. Whenever kids would color, I’d want to color with them. Whenever there’s a Halloween party, I’d put on something little. But this school isn’t like that. It makes me feel weird from day one.
Anyways, how is/was your Halloween?
