There are a lot of good things about my job: I get full medical and dental benefits paid for, I get copious amounts of vacation, I get a reduced schedule during the summer and I enjoy the people I work with. But some of the best perks are the random gifts from children. In this case, Leo and Cian decided they wanted to make hot chocolate mix for all the teachers, etc. So they came around with order forms after school one day and we all placed our order. The next day I was greeted with a delightful package of homemade hot chocolate mix.

Complete with instructions and picture.

Here was my order form. “You can get more than one kind,” said Cian. So I checked two kinds. I got both kinds in one package. Altogether, salted caramel and peppermint work fairly well when combined.

Thanks Leo and Cian, for making my day.

  1. So adorable. Our 'in the box' kids would not think of something like this! I do agree that the student gifts are a perk. Here it seems I always get swanky non-student made gifts. I really miss those…

  2. You list the many perks of your job. Keep in mind that copious amounts of vacation and reduced summer hours are perks without pay. Wouldn't want people to get the wrong idea. MOM
