Backstory: I'm a camp specialty counselor, which means I see kids from ages first grade all the way to seventh. I'm also a bus counselor, which means I get kids in a nursery as well. Let's just say I'm with kids A LOT.
1. Q: "Are we there yet?"
A: "I don't know, ARE WE?"
2. Q: "I want to go to the playground!"
A: "And I want to win the lottery, life's not fair. We're going after lunch anyways."
3. Q: "How did you get this job?"
A: "You are five what does it matter to you?"
4. *Kid does something gross*
A: Me, thinking: "I don't get paid enough to deal with this."
5. Q: "Want to see me do a handstand?"
6. Q: "I can draw a heart too! Watch."
7. "I love you."
A: "I love you, too."
OK, let's be real now. I love kids so much. They're our future and the ones who haven't been corrupted by the mind of society give me hope for our future. I've met some of the nicest people as a camp counselor, even if I'm more than twice their age. Being a camp counselor is weird and has its downfalls, but getting to know these awesome kids makes it a little better.
