6 days (but who's counting)

6 more work days and I will be a stay-at-home mommy again ... I am SO ready! I have been making some plans ... potty training, story time, parks, zoos, swimming, ABCs, 123s, sleeping in ... I am beyond excited to really just be home with my boy.

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it or not, but this year has been pretty hard as far as morning drop-offs at my sitter's. "Mommy, no go," "(s)tay home," "No Cinny's house, home," "I don't want this" ... there has been a fit 90% of the days I've gone to drop him off. Now, I know that he is fine (he stops crying a minute after I leave), but it breaks.my.heart.

I remember the first time I ever took Griffin's to my sitter's house, I cried in the driveway and thought I could never leave my baby. That was hard ... this is harder ... times 100! Griffin LOVES our sitter; I love our sitter, but hearing my boy beg me to stay with him is heart-wrenching.

No, I am not writing this in preparation to stay home permanently because I really enjoy my job. I am fortunate that my job allows me to spend my nights, weekends, holidays, and summers at home. I like to be around adults and talk about things other than, "poop goes in the potty." It's just hard to be away from Griffin.

Anyways, I am SO looking forward to the summer break and being home ... so, in 6 more school days, I will be back home.

P.S. - So, you know Griffin will probably WANT to go to Cindy's house and not stay home!!! Ha!

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday

A five minute visit to the potty ... as told by Griffin's face.

I'm Alive ...

Barely ... ha! I am in the final stretch of school and it is majorly kicking my butt! My seniors are done after this week and 70 kids ready to graduate is A LOT to handle. There is some major senioritis going on in my room right now ... and I'm not just talking about the students!

Also, my sister is getting married THIS weekend and I have a lot of packing/organizing to get ready for a weekend away (she lives 2 hours away from me). I'm a big time planner, so I have a packing list, a Friday list, and a wedding day list.
Is it summer yet???

Enough to melt any mommy's heart ...

All together now ... AWH!!! Griffin got his tuxedo for my sister's upcoming wedding and I decided that a little fashion show was in order. Griffin was pretty good about putting the tux on (surprisingly), but as the picture taking interfered with his Super Why time, he wasn't all that cooperative. Oh well, he still looks pretty freaking adorable!!!
