Dear Emery Jack,
|On our way to your first day of daycare!|
|You thought you needed your mommy 🙂|
Today was your second day at daycare and things are going really well! I’m so excited for you to meet new friends, you seem to get along well with the other kids (all girls) already. Yesterday when I dropped you off for the first time on your own I was a little sad, but you eased my mind when you just walked into the classroom like you’d been there forever. I feel like your dad and I have done our job because you seemed so confident and well adjusted. Lots of people ask me if I was sad that you didn’t cry and reach for me when I left and I honestly can say that I’m so happy that this has turned out to be such an easy transition for you.
Dear Emery Jack,
|Picture first thing in the morning on your birthday!|
Once again it’s late, but I didn’t want to take any time out on your birthday to sit and write anything down. I wanted to spend as much time with you soaking up the moment. Everything goes by so quickly and I cannot believe that my little baby is now a toddler! Happy Birthday to you my little munchkin, Mommy and Daddy LOVE you SO very much!
|Sweetest little smile EVER!|
They are the cutest teeth I’ve ever seen and every time you crack your smile they just shine 🙂 Although, I can see an orthodontist in your future. 🙁
Your Nanna, Papa, Giddy, Grandma Cookie, Papaw, and Uncle Jake were there and so were your cousins Maggie and Macee. You played and played, you love to follow Maggie and Macee around and I’m sure it has nothing to do with the giant lollipops they kept sticking in your mouth that they got from the Easter Bunny.
Soon there will be huge changes in all of our lives, because I just got a job teaching third graders at an elementary school close by. We have all of the summer to pal around and as soon as August comes Mom and Dad go to work and you will be going to daycare for the first time in your tiny life. My heart is breaking. I am so thrilled to get to go back to teaching and get back into the swing of things, but it is very overshadowed by the thought of someone getting to spend more time with you than I do and that thought hurts my heart. I hope you know how much your mommy and daddy love you and that me going back to work is the best thing in the long run for all three of us.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but a lot has been happening! First of all today is March 1st and it was 60 degrees today, the weather was amazing and I have SPRING FEVER BIG TIME! I can’t wait to have this baby and stroll him around in the nice weather. 🙂
So I’m minding my own business getting ready to post to my blog when I notice that in the live feed I see that people are arriving to my blog via: bangableblogbabes.blogspot.com
“Hmm…” I say to myself and decide to check it out. I’m scrolling through the page when I SEE MY FACE on June’s Top 5 Bangable Blog Babes! I’m not sure if I should be stoked that I’m #2 or if I should be disgusted (leaning more toward the stoked if you care to know).
Here’s what the post said:
Char-Marie : She’s graduating with her degree in teaching this year, but I’d like to hire her as my personal sex education tutor.
The most hilarious thing of all is that I am in no way Smooth or Sexy. Anyone who knows me knows that I am the most uncoordinated, ungraceful girl, but you can bet that the next time I’m out and some random girl is hitting on my husband I’m going to lean over and say, “Move over bitch, I’m June’s #2!”
Spring break has officially come to an end. Tomorrow I have to go back to work, and it’s bittersweet. I know that going back to work means we’re closer to warm weather, but I also know that I’ll be there all summer long when I could be out in the nice weather. BLAH. I’m looking forward to interview time again when I can maybe find an elementary job. I would be SO SO happy working with older kids again. I love my preschool kids, but I like to actually teach. I like talking about history, science….even math is fun. I miss all that so much. I miss having my own room to do my own thing in, and not having to wait to see what the other lead teacher will do. I’m in a funk.
I’m ready for the sun.
Once again I’ve made it to another Thanksgiving. Each year it seems to show up so soon and just like that, it’s gone. Although I won’t be spending this Thanksgiving with my parents, siblings, or in-laws I am going to be spending Thanksgiving with my Husband. What more could a girl ask for?
This Thanksgiving we will be spending with our friends Ben and Nichole. They’re in the same boat we’re in- no family and in grad school. Ben works with Colby in the art department. Nichole is going to grad school for Psychology. I want to go back to school…
