Free "You Get What You Get and You Don't Throw a Fit" 8x10 printable {high res prints onto a letter-sized sheet, to be trimmed and framed}

Long ago, in a land far away {okay, 30 miles up the highway}, I taught preschool. I lasted all of one year. I am just not meant to be a teacher...that's not a gift God blessed me with. But I hung on for a whole school year and did have an incredible group of little friends that I learned from.

One little girl, God love her, was...errrr, a challenge. She had the most precious personality, but...yeah. She was a hilarious challenge. I could write an entire book on Janie-isms. We all cracked up at her unusual four-year-old wit and humor. But, that sweet baby spent a lot more time on red than green {I'm betting a lot of you know what that is referring to}. One thing I took from that class with me was Janie's favorite expression that she sang gleefully at the lunch table every. single. day. She would unpack her Hannah Montana lunchbox and spread it all over her spot. Daily: a pizza Lunchable, a bag of red and green grapes, a Sugar Daddy and grape soda. Grape Soda. And a Sugar Daddy. Daily. I'm not one to judge other people's lunch packing, but man...that daily lunch was rough on the teacher. Sugar shock at twelve o'clock. 

Of course, every other ham & cheese sandwich eating, juice box sipping, carrot stick toting kid was completely jealous. 

And what did Janie sing? You guessed it. She dutifully informed them of her mantra: "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit." The reverse never worked on her. She did not like that one thrown back at her. 

But, that sweet girl is almost done with elementary school...somewhere out there. And she's probably still throwing back the grape sodas and Sugar Daddies...and I can't help but smile as I think of her little black Mary Janes stomping in rhythm on the floor as she belted out her mantra:

  11. Thanks so much for the wonderful printable. Your generosity is much appreciated. I went over to look at your printables pages, what a great assortment for pretty every occasion. Loved them but will wait to print them out when I need them, so as not to use up all my ink cartridge. I almost used up this months already on July 4th. printables, ouch. Love your blog, it's great. Happy 4th.
