Snow Logic

So every morning we have a 15 minute recess. But now that it has snowed in the midwest, a simple 15 minute recess has turned into a 45 minute ordeal. Shoes off, snowpants on, boots on (make sure that they are on the right feet), mittens on, scarves on, coats on, hats on, mittens off (to zip up the coat), mittens back on. Do this times 20. Then, inevitably, "Teacher I have to use it." Shooot! Mittens off, coat off, hat off, scarf off, boots off, snowpants off....and then 2 seconds later, snowpants on, boots on, hat on, scarf on, coat on and zipped. Wait, where are my mittens..."Teacher, he took my mittens and I had them first!" Mittens on, everyone line up and be quiet. Out the door. Then 15 minutes of, "I'm cold" "I have to go potty" "He threw a snowball at me" and "I have snow in my boots." Now it's time to line up, go inside and repeat everything again for the next 15 minutes. Someone needs to invent an all in one boots, snowsuit with mittens, hat and scarf that zips up and down. It would save me a huge headache, an unbelievable amount of stress and a few accidents over the course of the winter. :) I love my job.
