I was working a little later on Thursday night because I knew I wasn't going to go near the school over the break (I'm going later today)....and I thought to myself "Self, you should take a few pictures of all the squirrels in your room". Of course there was plenty that I could have been doing that would have been more productive, but I don't think it would be as funny:)
This guy/girl (how do you know?) lives right outside my door. He/She is the chubbiest of them all. Bad enough to be known as a squirrel, but now I'm a chubby squirrel.
This one is attached to our Related Arts schedule. He actually has a name, it is "Nuts" and I swear, I am not lying it is on his tag.
Since the children think it is so funny, I use it to my advantage. My squirrel friends keep an on everyone and report out to me after school!
(I would like all to note that you cannot see through the curtain on the door because it is DARK OUTSIDE!! This Daylight Savings is making me feel like I never quit working!)
We are now moving on to the "desk squirrels". These are the ones that are privileged enough to not be tortured by hot glue, rubber bands, or command strips and be stuck to something
This one weirds me out a little....I don't know why, but he does!
Yes, this is a stone squirrel. He came from the Lost Sea in Sweetwater, TN.
I am not sure what this one is for. I think he is a candy dish. No matter what he is, you really have to wonder when it was manufactured did the maker think "Yep, this is the one! I will be rich! Because everyone wants a squirrel on a nut on their coffee table!"
(This may have been the brainchild of the squirrel-on-a-nut-guy)!
I am pretty sure this is a chipmunk and not a squirrel but I have to wait until "Susie" moves to 2nd grade before I can remove him from desk duty...she would be crushed! Both of my sons agree that he is their favorite because he looks like he is poo-ing on everything! (Aren't boys grand?)
I am pretty sure that this is a dog toy, he has no eyes and he squeaks! I am so happy that as one of my students was picking up dogfood, they thought of me!
This guy is a little creepy. He lives on my PC at school. I think he is supposed to be a plant decoration, but I kill everything green!
This is "Squeaker". He does not squeak, but the child who gave him to me had a VERY HIGH PITCHED voice! He goes with me and waves goodbye at buses everyday.
A squirrel Squinkie. He lives in my desk drawer. I used to have a really cute Littlest Pet Shop squirrel, but she was "squirrel-napped" by a 6 year old who was confident she could give her a better home.
So those are JUST SOME- I am totally not kidding- SOME of the squirrels in my room. With all the generosity from my students and their parents, I told the MR that I am going to legally change my last name to some that rhymes with diamonds or money.....:)
