Why I do it

Sometimes I get very frustrated with my job, whether one of my kiddos has a total meltdown or I get buried in paperwork. But there are definitely days that have moments that make me smile and help me remember why I do this.

On Tuesday I was working on skipping with one my kiddos who is autistic. He usually does pretty well with it but I hadn't seen him in a few weeks and he just didn't feel like skipping. He was getting very frustrated with me (and I thought he was going to hit me like he is often known to do) but instead he turned around, gave me a really mean look, and yelled at the top of his lungs "spaghetti!". It was so hard not to laugh in his face. I still laugh out loud when I think back to it.
