Started in 1995 etc, etc… World Book Day is to encourage those who no longer read or have book at home to share with their children. Which is a fundamental part of being a parent people. READ WITH YOUR KID!!!
Nah no excuses I work, I parent, I come home shattered after leaving at 7am and spend time chatting, eating and bathing with my offspring. We always read before sleep, always. No excuses, I birthed her, she deserves a bedtime story daily.
Back to World f***ing Book (torture your teacher) day.
The rules for a teacher
- Dress Up. I am 40. I have had my fair share of dressing up for friends parties and some for other ‘occasions’ (ask me after wine)
- Send your child to school in a dress up outfit. This can be ANYTHING REMOTELY related to a piece of paper. Spiderman, Pokemon?!? Comes to mind.
- Send in your child with a type of weapon. That could be a wand, sword or BOW AND F***ING ARROW.
- Send your child in a MASSIVE dinosaur, bunny, tiger outfit. FULL BODY FUR OUTFIT. How the F do you think he/she will use the toilet, sit down, eat their lunch?
RAIN. RAIN all godamn day! They don’t go outside to play, well because then all the princess dresses would get their hems wet. Sweet, sweet Jesus. I went outside and played in our river as the outside floor is not even and drains do not work, I changed numerous socks. I stopped a robber running after a Harry Potter and an Oompa Loompa from standing on a chair and told the whole class “Just because we are dressed up does not mean we ignore our rules”(and go completely f ing CRAZY people). Walking feet, walking feet all day!!!
Then at the end of this joyful day invite all the parents in to read. So nice to see families together reading and not stressful at all….
Where is the wine?
