I made it through my first full week as a full time teacher who is not 9 months pregnant! Hooray! Celebrations! CHEERS all!
 
 
I was welcomed back to my classroom with such sweet messages from my students!! I was kind of in shock they didn't forget me considering I was only their teacher for a week. But these adorable gestures proved they really did miss me ; )
 
{Today I feel happy because my teacher became a mom}
heart.melting.

Back to work meant leaving my sweet little guy.  He will be 8 weeks tomorrow and he is doing fantastic.  I miss him so but I know he is in good hands : )
 

This week started out a little bumpy BUT I feel like I am getting back into the groove now.  I just needed to find myself as a teacher again and today my students using Mrs. Olson's Lucky Little Learner's Interactive Math Notebooks made my teacher heart so happy.
I am still in disbelief not ONE kid cut or pasted this on wrong.  AND they were adding like pros!!!
 

This morning before the students arrived the principal made an announcement about a breakfast Kindergarten and 2nd grade teachers were hosting.  I panicked like "OMG was I supposed to bring something?!"  My fellow teachers stopped by my room to get me and I was still all like "WAIT how did I not know about this?!" They told me that teachers host breakfasts once a month and they didn't want to bother me with bringing something since I just got back.  Little did I know it was a SURPRISE baby shower for me.  All, I just started at this school and I already feel like part of a family.  Everyone has been SO warm, welcoming and generous.  Oh my I don't know what I did to deserve all they did for me today.  It was so sweet!
{that is a DONUT cake!!! Yes donuts are under that frosting and guess what the donuts had cream in them. OH.EM.GEE!}
 

After months of stressful planning, my 10 year class reunion went off last weekend WITHOUT a hitch!! So thankful it is OVER and I can never plan another reunion ever again--HA!
It ended up being a great time and it was nice to have an adult night out!
reunited with two of my besties from HS
 
How was your week?!
 
 



Currently: October

Thursday, October 1, 2015
Currently is one of my favorite linky parties.  I have missed it the last few months but am definitely going to turn that around! Link up over at Farley's Blog: Oh Boy It's Fourth Grade

Oh' Boy 4th Grade


Listening:  My husband is doing such a great job helping out with baby duties.  This staying at home thing is more challenging than I anticipated.  He always takes the baby right away when he gets home.  We tag team putting him to sleep.  Then he makes him a bottle and changes him in the morning.  I don't know how people do it alone!!
 {how sweet are they?!}
Loving: I could complain that I have to go back to work after just 6 weeks of maternity leave BUT I am unbelievably thankful that I have an awesome job to return to--my DREAM job that I have waited SO long for.  I still can't really believe I am a 2nd grade teacher (or the fact I was hired 8 months preggers!!)

Thinking: I am the mom of a 1 month old! And I am not going to say "I can't believe it, it went by so fast." because honestly, it didn't.  It was a LONG, busy, tiring month.  Everything they say about being a parent is TRUE.  In the words of Wanda Sykes "Kids--they a lot of work, but they worth it."


Wanting: I am thinking of planning some pampering before returning to work so I don't feel like such a slob.  Seriously, I have worn nothing but pajamas or yoga pants for what feels like the past year.  Okay so it's been 5 weeks but really, I need to get my act together!
Needing: Since the only 5 days I was in school so far this year I was the size of an Orca whale, I am in desperate need of some new threads for when I return in 11 days.  I have been perusing Pinterest like crazy getting outfit ideas and putting together a shopping list.  Here are two of my favs:

Boo-tiful: Nights out are now few and far between.  We were lucky to be able to celebrate our anniversary last weekend without baby.  Just a few hours out alone makes such a big difference!! Getting to leave the house for something other than a diaper run or dr. appt. is ah-maz-ing.  We are blessed with awesome grandparents to our little boy : )

Baby overload, I know #sorrynotsorry

Happy October : )
