Kinder apron theory

DID YOU KNOW....
that the reason the Kindergarten waldorf teacher wears an apron is to protect herself from loosing energy to the children... it's like a shield. The younger child lives so much in the etheric that they sap the energy from the adults around them...that is why you are worn out by being around small kids with out even doing much around the house. Its not their fault, they are alive with energy and want to walk around 3 feet above their bodies...their etheric body I mean. So the Kinder teacher shields herself with an apron and that apron is suppose to be the color of the day to help the child's body. So they support the child with out loosing their own energy force.

Interesting hah?

I am going to start wearing an apron again and see if it helps me...

This makes incredible sense. I just got a new apron pattern. Maybe I need to start sewing...
