*****If only I had this portable hair dryer: Velcro has done wonders, but can you imagine the possibilities with this bad boy?********
As many of you know, I started back teaching this year. That was a big decision for our family. I have been so blessed to be home for the almost the last 6 years. I was a bit nervous going back, but I love it! Part time teaching is a great fit for my family. I wish David was about a year older, but he's adjusted well. My mom has been a huge blessing with him and is picking him up a few times a week about an hour or 2 before I'm out of school. The other days he's in Mother's Day Out.
I love a routine and enjoy that aspect of working. Getting everyone out the door by 8:00 or so is a bit challenging. For those of you with kids that aren't able to dress themselves...just wait! That makes a HUGE difference. I am also letting the crumbs stay on the floor from breakfast. :) That is a BIG step for me. However, I strive to have plates washed off and table wiped. I can't let it ALL go gals. The boys are really doing well. I want to encourage you all with really young ones: it gets so much easier. My older two can get in the car and buckle themselves. It seems like yesterday that I was getting all three strapped into car seats. Oh yes, 3 in car seats: 3 kids 3 and under. :) It was a yoga exercise I tell ya. I contorted my body to reach the ones in the back. Now, I guess I am a lady of leisure. I only strap in one little munchkin. I can't believe I have a 5, 4, and almost 2 year old! Where has the time gone?
Best money spent this year: Velcro New Balance shoes for David! I can get those suckers on his little chubby feet in no time. It seriously would take almost 5 min. to get the tie shoes on because he would curl his toes!
I have some interesting news....I'll share tomorrow. Gotcha wondering!!!!??? Hope so!
