I found my people!!

Hi everyone,

Well, summer has gone waaaayy too fast (says the teacher), yet waaaaaaayy too slow (says the mom). Anyone else feel this way??

True story: this morning I ACTUALLY broke up a fight between my two boys over DIRTY LAUNDRY. For reals. Ugh.

Anywhooo, I wanted to pop in and let y'all know that I started a Second Grade FB Group! For all of my sassy teacher colleagues out there... I hope you'll take a moment to pop over and join this lovely, sassy, fun group of inspirational teachers from around the world. Join here or click on the pic below.

Side note: the "model" is one of my own cherubs!! 

I hope to see you in my Facebook group.  While you're there, don't forget to follow me for more freebies and great ideas!!

XOXO,

My Crazy Life After the Bell

You guys. I've been SUPER off the radar lately. It's been an amazingly overwhelming year of moving to a new ( and incredible) school; suddenly losing my mother (#cancersucks); home remodeling; and overall renewal and rediscovery. I'm excited to share with you my looney life in hopes that it makes yours seem a little more normal! 

Topic 1. My CRAZY BOYS


Jackson is almost 10, going on 13. I NEVER thought having balls would equal such an attitude. The drama!!! True story: when I was in high school, my nickname was 'Tude... because I was, well, outspoken. wink wink. Let's just say that I'm being paid back two-fold. Bennett is 6-and-a-half, and my little doppelgänger. He is.  Just. Like. Me. Stubborn, anxious, quick-witted, overly fashionable (can a six-year-old be that way??), gross, and hilarious. As I write this post, he's shaking his adorable naked tush at me from the bathtub. A boy after my own heart. (TMI, sorry Mom).

Then there's my handsome husband. Lord, what did I ever do to deserve such a caring, selfless, and giving man?? He'd kill me if I posted a picture of him, so instead here's a picture of me holding an adorable baby bunny, which was rescued from our kindergarten playground (surely facing an uncertain death). Isn't he cute, just like my husband???? (See what I did there?)



Anyhoo, I hope you love my updated blog design, thanks to Michelle at The 3am Teacher. She's the bomb dot com! I have big plans for future posts, including but not limited to: The Bachelor, white kitchens, Stitch Fix, German Shepherd puppies, RTI, my amazing teammates, and much, much more!! AAAAAHHHHH, I cannot focus anymore. The child has escaped the bathtub and is talking faster than I can keep up!!

Chow, friends!
