I love the 80s

We celebrated the decade our Teacher of the Year began teaching last week. Thus, an entertaining day! First graders asked, "What's the 80s?" My brief explanation included side pony tails, neon colors, leg warmers, and bangle bracelets. For boys...well, I was stumped. Either way, I had a great time dressing up and decided to go with a more "Dynasty" kind of look than "Flashdance". :o)

Seriously though, first graders, what a riot!

Every. Single. Day. Without. Fail. When coming in from recess, there are a minimum of 2 tattles. Usually more... either way, here is a rundown from today:

Kid in high-pitched super whiney voice: "He put my coat in POOOOOOP!"
Me in a calm non-yelling voice: "He what? I'm sorry that happened. Are you sure he did it on purpose?"
Again with the super whiney: "Yeeeesssss! He put it in POOOOP!"

By the time we get inside, the story has been told by at least 4 different children and the adult who was on duty. And then...the real comedy gold begins.

I call the darlings over who are involved and talk calmly.
"I've had several reports from students you put her coat in poop. I'd like to give you a chance to explain. What happened?"
"Well, I saw her coat in the trashcan and I took it out. And then"
"NU-UH! He put my coat in poop and then he put it on his wiener"
(looking appalled...) "I DID NOT DO THAT! I DID NOT PUT YOUR COAT ON MY WIENER. I did put it on poop. I'm sorry."

During this exchange, it was quite difficult to maintain my professional demeanor. I had to cover my face to keep from busting a gut. Ah, the life of a first grade teacher. I wish you could have seen the dramatic facial expressions and heard the exceedingly emphatic twang about "pooooop".

And now, Ways to know your teacher loves you:
If you buy her a medium shirt from Abercrombie & Fitch for Christmas and she is wracking her brain trying to figure out how to wear it and not look like a giganto pink puffle. She probably thinks you're great, especially if she's lucky to fit an extra large from Abercrombie & Fitch. Does A&F actually even make XLs? I think they might be "size-ists".

Enjoy your day. I hope you got a little laugh.

Drama Queen

Dramatic, Emphatic, Completely erratic
This is me to a "t"
Unique from the moment created
Tryin' not to be hateful
Can you capture it with your camera?
Psh. I'm too fast.
The moment has passed
Arms like a marionette
Legs like a spider
Theatrical expression
Each day is a show
No two in a row
Bless the Savior
for my crazy behavior
Saved me from my silly
But lets me be me <3

Jesus > Religion

Beautiful. Brings tears to my eyes because of its truth... Thank you, Jesus.

How can you say you love a God so real
And then hurt people with things you feel?
With hard words you're willing to condemn
And leave them helpless & drowning in their sin
Jesus called us to love them & show them His mercy
To reach out and touch them until His truth they see
Be fervent in prayer and patience
Wait His will out until things make sense

Every day may be your runway... but what are you showing? Love Jesus. Love others.

Thrifty thrifterson

Oooooh! I am so excited! My momma and I are going to go thrifting on Saturday. I am so fortunate because I have a momma who is my friend.

I've been having so much fun all week taking pictures and uploading them to chictopia.

Precious husband took a picture of me for my chictopia page. I sure love that guy!


Today, school had it's ups and downs but I will say this, dadgummit, those kids are learning how to read and THAT makes me happy! It's the best part of teaching and why I love my job.

There was a good turnout of parents at the Awards Assembly too and that always makes my heart smile and makes my nerves act up. Being in front of that many people makes me a tad nerve-y.

Hope you have a fabulous day and as always...
Get your fashion on!

I'm not crazy.

I've found a haven. Wanna know where it is??? http://www.chictopia.com . I never feel like I can adequately express how I feel about clothing. I've never encountered a person who gets as jazzied up as I do. My Joe explained it best when he said, "I feel like if I can adequately explain it, people will be as excited as I am about it." Except when he said that, he said it about music. We're both extremely passionate about things we love. If you've never checked it out, please go look at chictopia. I'm absolutely in love with it. Truly. I know it's ridiculous. It's such a fun way for me to relax and veg on fashion. *sigh* Happiness. Maybe someday....
