A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

Fly on the Wall

August 2015

After 3 days of it, I think it's official now- Charlotte sleeps in a "big-girl" bed!

I told Sam to come help me empty the dishwasher. She literally fell to the floor, howling in pain that her legs huuuuuuuuuuuuurt. *eyeroll*

Charlotte's answer to everything in the affirmative is now, "Yes I do." 
Do you want to get down? "Yes I do"
Did you get your book? "Yes I do"
Are you all done? "Yes I do"


July 2015

Sam wants the toothfairy to come again but doesn't want me to pull the (very loose) teeth she has...so she said, "Ok, mom, how about this- I've got a great idea- all we got to do is get some cardboard, cut it in the shape of a tooth, get a white crayon..."
Ok, seriously, how am I supposed to parent this child with a straight face?!?

"Mommy can you put my hair up?"
"Sure, go get a hair tie."
"Ok!" Gets down from the table, runs off, comes back and says, "I'm ready now!"
"Ok, where's the hair tie?"
"Oh, shoot, I forgot to grab one!"
-Most absent minded child EVER
"Did they write 'Kim' or 'Mom' on your nametag?"
-Sam when she saw my Family Feud picture with Amanda
"He's not even looking...it's right there on the floor in front of him."
"I KNOW. You do the SAME THING."
"Oh. Well I was looking exactly where YOU were pointing!"

"You're ruining my LIFE!" -Sam

reason my toddler is throwing a tantrum- she did NOT want the raspberries that I ate.

June 2015

"Samantha, why are you holding avocado on your foot?"
-something I actually said this morning
The answer? Her toe hurt...she needed something cold to put on it.
"Weird! The whole world is made from China!"

The church here in Arkansas in the middle of nowhere had a good 15 wasps flying around, landing in hair and on shirts. I managed to kill one after it landed in my hair. Kept the whole congregation wiiiiide awake.

May 2015

Charlotte has discovered my first name...
Sam was planning for her b-day party. 
"What should we have to drink?"
"For the kids or the adults?"
JackieNadean- WHAT is she doing with you guys after school?!?

April 2015

A rough morning this morning. Lots of tears all around. In the midst of it all I slapped down her pancake and said, "Here's your damn pancake." Which, of course, started tantrum #48 with a wail of "NOOOOOOO!!!! I don't want a DAMNED one!!!!!"

March 2015

"I gave up social media for Lent."
Teen at Godteens, "What does that mean for you people?"
"You people? What social media do us old people use?"
Teen, "Um...yeeeaaah...I mean, besides facebook."

Love the Beauty in Innocence: Lucy, "Addie and I almost said the "a" word twice at school today!". Me, "The "a" word...you mean, a-s-s?" Lucy, with an appalled look on her face, "NO! The "a" word that you're not supposed to say during lent!"

February 2015

Gabe has been with us this weekend. Boy, you want to annoy Jeremy and Samantha? Call Charlotte "he" and use all male pronouns. Good grief!
In the very touching "thank you" letters from students they all described me as "nice" over and over. Jeremy's response was "Well, you are...in a french way."

January 2015
"Dress like a teacher" day today. So far I've seen two who are me. The outfit? A maxi-skirt, tall boots and a grey scarf.
I just want to brag on Jeremy- I'm SO proud of him for being successful in his new career. He's been hired on by Nelnet! Yay for benefits and sick-days again!

"We're NOT supposed to talk about birthday parties at school!"
(Me agreeing) "And who told you that?"
"My boss!" 
"Your boss?"
"Yes! My boss! Sr. Mary Michael!"
"You mean your principal?"


So...Sam passed out from seeing her blood today and will now have a splint on her finger to try and avoid stitches for a couple of weeks. She also (hopefully) learned NOT to touch broken class.
"If Mimi (Jackie) picks me up but she's really exhausted, then she can just take me to Rogene's." 
Looking at the calendar for this coming semester with Sam and talking about days she'll be at someone's house. She's covering all her bases
