Happy Friday! This may be our last weekend with no plans for awhile...we are entering "life" again, since it's getting a little warmer, and the winter is withering away (hopefully). I think I just added about a dozen events - showers, bachelorettes, birthday parties, etc - into our calendar. Sorry, babe!
ONE // PARENTING
I've been struggling with Cam lately, feeling like I am constantly correcting him - don't do that, quieter, be more gentle, don't feed your sister bbq chips, etc...This article is so DUH, but it's amazingly effective. Whenever I am correcting him, I'm across the room doing dishes or answering emails or something not with HIM. I know that I can't be with him 24/7, but if I am just closer, it will cut down on my yelling.
TWO // SHOPPING
I love Amazon. My mail lady must think we are billionaires because of the constant delivery of Amazon Prime boxes. (We're not. Not even close.) But I had no idea about some of these tips.
THREE // FOOD
I have lost four pounds just from eating healthier...I haven't even been working out. I do so well at work, but at home, I struggle. These instant oatmeal jars are totally my jam. They're easy, they're healthy, and they help keep me full. #winning
This article reminded me why I teach. There are so many ups and downs and more failures than successes, it feels like sometimes. I was emailing with a parent this week, and it kept coming to my mind how much more I care about my students as PEOPLE than as STUDENTS. Obviously, I want them to learn and succeed, but if they don't have the feeling of love and support, they'll never succeed.
FIVE // QUOTE
This is me today. So tired, so burnt out, but a little Missy Elliot on the way to school helped perk me up a bit!
Have a great weekend! Here's to wine at gymnastics, 50% off at GAP outlets and some warm temps on Sunday.
