Who is this chick?

I was a wild kid… Lots of energy… 

Teachers probably wanted to sedate me...

 I am sure my mother refused them.

About me 6

But I loved school and I wanted to be the teacher.

The picture below  is my second grade self 

getting to write the date on the board. 

I was so so so proud, and I did my very best printing!
Post This1
Now, I am the teacher and half the time I don’t change

the date until a kid says something like,

“How long is it going to be February 5th?” 

So I change the date, and I give the kid who noticed a Skittle….

Hush money…. just keeping it real.


 I grew up and married a great guy. I mean seriously great.

We are not perfect, but like Peanut Butter and Jelly,

we are perfect for each other....

Oh, we have our days! We are on World War 316,   but

 I would chose him all over again!

About me 14   All about me 14
We moved about a million times (really 5 times in 10 years)

until we bought this house 4 minutes from our schools.

4 minutes…. the commute is killer!

I love our house and I adore decorating it. 

My pocketbook can't keep up with my ideas!

About me 10.2

These are our shih-tzu children… yes I said it…

I am the mother to furry children.

Meet Poppy and Daisy, my flower girls.

I only wish they were covered under my HMO plan

because vet bills are not cheap.

About me 8

In 2006 we had our sweet son.

It was a horrid pregnancy, and I went into labor about every other

week from 6 months on. Jackson was born at 36 weeks,

 but soooooo, sooooo, sooooo, sick.

 I mean really..... [ wipe a tear ]..... sick.....  

He spent 18 days in the N.I.C.U.

I wrote a post about my experience {here}.

To say this was life changing is an understatement.

About me 9

 Now he is healthy, happy, and at grade level in academics and maturity.

He is not a NICU baby anymore, but I will forever be a “NICU Mommy”.

It changes you. My husband said it best in his post called {NICU Daddy}.

About me 4About me 3
All about me 16All about me 18

My grandma says rough beginnings make, 

for great endings... I believe her.

For such a rough start, Jackson has made up for it in personality plus.

He is a chatterbox who says the funniest stuff. 

Thank God his K Teacher has a sense of humor!

He sits at his “own desk” in kindergarten….

....away from friends to chat with…

....as in..... an island…. {inner teacher cringe}

He knows 180 sight words, and his teacher has not asked to sedate him! 

Praise the Lord!

This is by far my favorite picture of my kid. He was 4 and said,

Really big sungalsses
“Mommy these are really big sunglasses.”

Quite frankly, I wish they were bigger sunglasses,

but that is another story.

Beach boyAbout me 5


I adore the beach and I loath laundry.

I mean really LOATHE it.

This hallway of 16 loads was the result of simply ignoring the laundry…

....eventually you can’t ignore things…

because nakedness outside the bedroom is not an option.

So that’s my story… 

simple girl

 faithful believer

often a whimsical disaster on wheels

 a teacher to the core 

 (both Common Core and deep down to my toes)

 truth teller

mommy

 wife

 and aspiring domestic goddess.




If you like what you see, please follow me….

and buckle your seat belt,

because it’s going to be a delightfully, bumpy ride!

By the way, what is your least favorite chore?

Do you hate laundry like me?

  7. Hi. I'm Stephanie. First year kindergarten teacher! (MID YEAR start) and I just came across your blog and read this post and it made me laugh out loud. The big sunglasses part for sure! I also really enjoyed your honesty about love and family and laundry. I got a late start this year, my first (After 5 years of subbing and waiting) and I have felt like everyone always seems to have everything clean and together all the time and I'm over here trying to reinvent the wheel, while creatively building laundry towers on the bedroom floor. I appreciate the realness and you made me smile and relax some so I wanted to let you know I appreciated your post. Thanks

  11. This is a great post! My least favorite household chore is vacuuming. I'm pretty small (...and weak...) and my vacuum is heavy so it seems like it takes me twice as long than most people to vacuum.

  13. Loved your story, your dogs and your son. He is adorable, such a handsome little guy. He said it all beautifully. Now for chores...well, think what i hate most is we have been hanging clothes outdoors to dry then bringing them in to de-wrinkle. So, it's getting them on line, taking them off again, hanging back up again then putting away. Not real fond of that job but it sure does cut down on electric bill

    ReplyDelete
  14. Loved your story. :) Chore I hate the most is hanging up the clothes. I don't mind folding laundry, but I don't like the hang-up clohtes (which is more of mine than my hubby's). I tend to leave them in a basket until it's full, then hang them all up at once (or when I can't find something to wear to school...hehe).

  92. Oh my word. We have a lot in common! Not sure why I chose to click your About Me page today, but I'm so glad I did! I had a Jackson in 2006 too! And while he wasn't a NICU baby, he was awfully close (36 weeks also--but he was a big one at 7lb 5oz)! (and the pregnancy wasn't too easy either--having contractions from about 6 months on as well!) He had a lot of issues after birth/home though. Ha! Must be the name. He was actually just tested and put in the "gifted" program in first grade!

    Anyway, just thought I'd share that thought! :)

  147. Hi there! I found your blog by googling California bloggers. I live in Orange County and I'm looking for fellow CA/So.Cal teacher bloggers to follow and network with. I saw that you had a So. Cal blogger meet up. How fun!! I'm brand new (only a week now) to blogging, and most teacher bloggers seem to be from outside Cali. Started wondering, "Where are the Cali bloggers?"
    (love your tzu tzus. I, too, am a fur baby mama. One malti-poo, one shih-tzu) : )

  148. Love your blog...I hate laundry, dishes, etc. but since I'm not independently wealthy and a teacher I still have to do all of those things. Thanks for the great blog. Our state (Florida) just went common core, I know we are always behind the times, and I changed grades to boot, I feel like I'm drowning. I went from 3rd to 1st and as much as I LOVE 1st I'm completely overwhelmed. I started a blog this year but I'm stuck and not sure how to even begin. Thanks for letting me vent. :)
