On announcing that I would be away from school for the day I was met with cheers from my little darlings. I thanked them for their support and let them know that Mrs X would be teaching them for the day. More cheers and a few cries of "We love Mrs X".
I was beginning to feel quite hurt (haha!) until one child piped up with "We get a WHOLE day of choosing time" (Aha! Now it makes more sense!). I quickly informed them that this was not the case and all of a sudden found myself surrounded by a group of children wanting to hug me and let me know the truth - "We love Mrs X but we love you more!".
They are so fickle :)
