Today is one of those crazy days when my 7th graders are what we call "squirrely"! We are having a huge line of thunderstorms blow through and it has made the twenty nine kids in my 2nd block frisky. Something about thunderstorms causes them to change into their "child" personality.
"What are you talking about?" you ask. "They are children."
Well, yes, technically they are. However, 7th graders are inhabited by two distinct personalities. One is the "grown-up-I'm-too-cool-for-you-and-your concern" and the other is that "I'm-still-a kid-and-need-the-security-and-comfort-you-provide" child. I love these dual personalities because there is never a day (or sometimes even a block) when you know which one you'll get!
Ahh, the joys of middle school...
