Hey there! I just got home from a baby shower and I can’t wait to tell you all about it tomorrow. 🙂 Really. The food alone made this one of the best baby showers I’ve ever been to. Seriously.
But for now . . . let me show you the highlights of my week as I link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching.
Murphie is getting really big. I took this pic while she was contemplating how much longer it will be until she can go visit our neighbor’s dog, Puppi, without permission or invitation.
This is one of my injuries from my Teeny Traumatic Tale. And don’t mind my last two toes. They’re shy. They didn’t want their picture taken at all. I’m hoping they’ll grow out of this stage. It’s quite annoying.
I have covered up the name of my city in the event that someone might want to
come out here and get me. That’s my paranoia talking. However, if you want
to bring me a Panera Cinnamon Crunch Bagel, I welcome you with open arms.
I’m on a kick right now and they’re it.
Oh, and don’t forget the Hazelnut Cream Cheese.
It’s lowfat but it tastes like frosting. For real.
I was wearing flip flops when I got my injury because it was HOT this week. We were super afraid that we might have inclement weather because the kids were not used to the heat, seeing as how we just had rain and wind not the week before. But we did get all of our recesses.
Instead, I just had to listen to my kids complain about how hot they were every time I went to pick them up from the playground.
“I’m hot,” they said. “It’s so hot!”
“I’m hungry,” I replied. “I am so hungry!”
Most of the time, that reply made them look funny at me. Occasionally, someone would whisper, “But it is. It’s really hot.”
So I would whisper, “Really. Sooo hungry.”
We made this leprechaun craft from A Cupcake for the Teacher. It was adorable. Just not the whole, “I messed up on my shoes. I need another one.” Or “I messed up on my gold.” Or “I can’t find my scissors.” Or even, “I have a baseball game today after school.” Whichever way you look at it, we do not have enough opportunities to do art because whenever we do it, we all get a case of I Don’t Understand And I Must Chase My Teacher Around The Room And Ask ‘Like This?’ A Million And One Times.
They turned out great, FYI. I just didn’t think I’d survive it.
I’m having a sale tomorrow. Woot!
And that’s all she wrote.
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Murphie is getting so big! She's so cute though!
Jealous of your flip flop weather! I love how you call your baby toes shy. You are too funny. They should have been cheesing it up for the camera. They were pedicure ready.
That leprechaun craft looks like it turned out really cute even if the kiddos might have driven you slightly crazy in the process!
Can't get any better than cream cheese that tastes like frosting! mmmmm!
I love Cinnamon Crunch Bagels too! Yummy!!! My Littles are the same with art projects. They ask a bajillion questions and are always super concerned that they didn't do it "just right." I with they were that concerned about other things we do in class!

HAHAH! I literally bust out laughing imagining my kids doing the EXACT same thing! That's when I tell them they are wearing me out!! 🙂
Hahaha you and I could swap classes and the kids wouldn't even notice! We had ten days straight of over 30 degrees (32 = 100F) and every time a student said "I'm hot", I would reply with "Hello Hot. I'm Hungry. Nice to meet you" and I'd offer a handshake. Luckily the kids are getting used to my sarcasm, which is pretty good for a bunch of 4-6 year olds!

I am totally jealous of the weather you have right now and that you are in sandals! Here in Kansas it was 80 degrees on Friday and now it is back to 30 degrees!!! I can't wait for some warmer weather!

It's in the 70's up in the Northern Bay Area and I'm loving it! Glad it's not just me who goes nuts during art time. I hate the constant 'Is this good?' question or 'I messed up' over and over.

When my kiddos complain that it is too hot, I offer to let them stay inside in my teaching friend's room and do work. They always seem to realize that maybe it is not THAT hot. =)
And you know we get some REALLY hot days here in Texas…which you need to visit this summer. =)
I do think Murphie is contemplating how to jump over the fence.
Thank you for the smiles and laughs.

Hahahahaha! My last two toes look like theyve been broken several times. I wish they would hide! Can't wait to read about the shower!
Mrs. Raby says
Love the craftivity, and I'm wondering where you got the plastic nametag/pencil holders. My class just got new desks, and those look perfect for what I need.
Since I have a tendency to be a day late and a dollar short all the time, this idea for a craftivity is just what I needed. My little kiddos are going on a leprechaun hunt Monday morning….I just needed to come up with a little project for thte afternoon. BINGO…got it! Thanks I am heading over to thte other Teri's to get my instructions. 🙂
Have a great week (and no more run in's with strange dogs).
Mrs. Youel says
I am sooo jealous of your weather! For being a "southern state" and Wednesday being the first day of Spring – we were OUT today because of SNOW. SNOW!!! My kids cannot afford to lose any more days 🙁 Soooo ready for spring, so when I saw your temps, it made me wistful.
Especially because once it hits summer here, we'll have the same temps and we'll have the humidity. *sigh*
LOVE reading your blog and I'd probably be standing there open mouthed gaga meeting you, too. 🙂 So would my buddy as we constantly giggle over your posts. Please keep posting – it really brightens our day!!! 🙂

Oh my goodness!! I had a hard time covering up my laughing. It's 5:30 am here and I'm ready to leave in a few minutes for school. My four year is sound asleep (I hope!) right above me. I'm afraid my true laughter at your response to "I'm hot" may have woken her. Anyway, I'm so adopting your response! I can't stand the kids that come up to me and complain like I can do something about it. It's even worse when the kid comes up complaining while they're wearing their sweatshirt. Who wears a sweatshirt when it's above 80 anyway? My crazy third gradersm that's who! Thanks for letting me start today with a giggle!
