WOW! I have not been able to blog in so long, and it’s killing me! Ok, that’s a lie, it’s not that I can’t, it’s just that life is literally flying by and I don’t know how to slow it down.
So what’s been going on? Well, aside from getting my very own class and becoming a full blow, certified elementary teacher with 29 5th graders, I’ve been trying to set up my first classroom, while making sure I have my lesson plans and activities in tip top shape. This is what takes up the majority of my time.
Of course, my little lady friend, aka my gorgeous daughter, is growing like a weed and isn’t helping time slow down at all. She’s a 9 month, 23 pound, crawling, babbling ball of love that’s all over the place and just really flourishing. She’s also going through one heck of a sleep regression, so we’re spending a lot of time putting her back to bed and even… shall I speak it… co-sleeping… GASP! Seriously, my dad said it best last night- people don’t know what they’ll do when their sleep deprived till they are there, and it is so true. I’ve always been an anti-co-sleeper, but when mama’s tired and has to get up at 5, plus who knows how many times during the night, she’ll do just about anything to get baby to sleep!
We’ve also been planning for Miss Anissa’s baptism, which will be a joint shindig with her prima Ava! It should be a beautiful, fun event and we can’t wait for the date!
On top of all that, there’s life. Life just happens, and it happens so fast. I wish I could slow everything down, add 3 or 4 more hours in the day to stop and enjoy what’s going on around me. I feel like I’m constantly running from one thing to the next. Hey, that’s a great plan- I think I just gave myself an idea 😉
Anyway, this random jumble is pretty much just a brain dump on life lately/an apology for why I haven’t been writing much lately. I promise, I have some good stuff in the works and will be back to the grind soon!
Miss yall! XOXO,
