The Span

You know you have a large age difference between your children when you are buying bras for one and diapers for the other at the same time!

So far Joy is liking daycare and Faith is liking 4th grade. Hopefully, this will continue for both of them beyond the first week of school! It's too soon to really have a good idea about my class this year - everyone is always on best behavior at first.

I'm feeling ok about being back - but it's hard knowing I'm operating at maybe 90% so far. Or maybe I'm at 100% but I'm too used to being at 110% that it feels like I'm slacking. But all I can do is do my best.

Back to School

Well I didn't meet my goal this year of having my room done before inservice started. It's the first time in about 8 years though. Gee, I wonder what was going on nine school years ago that kept me from meeting that goal?

Oh, yeah, the big one was a teeny, tiny baby going to daycare for the first time and I didn't want to stay a minute longer than I had too at work!

The little one had a great first day though - hope it keeps up!

Danger Will Robinson!

Note to self - do not leave the camera out where the 9 yo has access to it. Especially when you're tired.

Rolling over!

Joy rolled from her back to her belly in her crib today! She's done this before with some assistance, but this one was solo because she did it while she was going down for a nap. She was so surprised she started yelling like a banshee! She's growing up so fast.

Growing Up

I've had to face the tough reality that Faith is growing up. She's interested in different things, has ever so fun mood swings, is getting zits, really should be wearing a cami and showing daily, plus so much more.

The latest reality for me was her planning on how she could get a job to earn some money. She's going to ask our neighbor if she can help her in the garden for $0.50/hour. Then again, I guess she is still a kid in some ways!
