But how could I resist?

We have a tradition at our school where every Wednesday morning the bigger kids make teachers a hot drink. Most teachers order tea or coffee but I always get a coconut hot chocolate and its soooo good. It arrived this morning while the kids were writing their persuasive compositions.

They were so engrossed in their work and were writing productively. So I kicked back, sipped my hot chocolate, and checked my emails. And didn't feel even a tiny bit guilty!

I have never done that during class before I swear. It was lovely and they did a wonderful job with their compositions

Glad you enjoyed your moment! Sad that we feel that every second has to be so perfect, that we can't even sit down for a minute or two and check our email. There are times, especially as the kids get a bit older, that they are all working independently and it is okay to do something!

sounds wonderful!

I agree, it is sad that we feel guilty for sitting at our desk for any length of time. I honestly feel that sometimes that's what's best for the kids, to be unavailable and leave them with only themselves to rely on.

That sounds so nice. I am glad you enjoyed it. Wish I could just do that once, but I work with 3 year olds so that is not possible. I love what I do, just sometimes I wish I could do just what you did.

I wish you could too! 3 year olds would be hard work, good on you.
I don't usually have mornings like this though
