I am a teacher. And also a nerd. And sometimes I do things in public that make others stare at me.
The thoughts and ideas in this blog are my own, unless otherwise stated,and do not represent the views of my employer in any way.

I think quarter two will include teaching Monster. I really didn’t care for Monster, but the kids seem to react well to it and it’s that or Call of the Wild and the last time I tried to teach that, it was a horror. 

SO: Do you guys have any resources for teaching Monster?

Probably my favorite part of Baby Kaaay’s room. I watched Serenity and Firefly twice in binge-watch sessions in my first two trimesters aaaand we almost spelled her middle name Jayne. It’s important to raise your nerdlings right.

Balls.

I have gotten several emails from students and parents and it has become clear that my classroom is in chaos.

Not looking forward to November 3rd at all. Now I have to deal with leaving my baby AND regaining order in the class.

Balls.

True story:

We are going to need more cloth diapers. Which is unfortunate, as I had to order them on line. Newborns poop waaaay too much for the diapers I got.

Definitely doing disposables at night for now. May go cloth tomorrow, if I’m up to doing a load of laundry.

Cloth diapering: that’s totally what you think it is.

Day 1 of cloth diapering

Will report back with the hilarious mishaps that are sure to follow!

First diaper change down. May be a coincidence, but this one was waaaay easier to clean her off.

Also, no one has been stuck by the pins…yet.

Also, Baby Kaaay really doesn’t like the sound of Velcro.

Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.

i want a novel focused around a character with braces during the apocalypse and the entire plot of the story revolves around their search for an orthodontist who is still alive and they sort of accidentally save the world in the process

Titled: Brace for It.

While this does sound like an interesting story, you can pop your brackets off with a pen cap.

I can’t get enough of this wonderful, adorable baby.

mrskaaay this is what is going to be attempted when we come to visit, just so you know.

I am 100% ok with that!

I just lost my glasses.

Aaaaand I can’t find them because I can’t see past about 6 inches. Gah!

Go into kitchen for ice cream…

mrskaaay:

Get distracted and clean the whole kitchen, then move on to the bathroom. At least I only took out the bathroom trash before I realized what I was forgetting?

Don’t worry, unabridged-tomes. I got my ice cream and some sourdough toast and took a nice nap!

I’ve been sleeping holding a pillow to my chest

It’s much more comfortable….until I wake up and think the pillow is Baby Kaaay and I’m smothering her in my sleep.

Obviously co sleeping isn’t going to be on the table for us….

I love my job and I love my students, but why does everyone all the sudden need me when I’m taking time for myself and my family on the other side of the county?! Gosh forbid Miss Improbable have her own life and issues to deal with.

I feel this deeply! From August 4 to September 13, my students stumbled on blindly, accepting whatever grades came their way, not too involved….

I have a baby and I am being FLOODED with emails and edmodo messages about improving grades and can I have extra credit and what’s my missing work from my family trip to Florida 3 weeks ago?

I am feeling a little resentful toward my profession lately. I want to spend all my time cuddling Baby Kaaay and devouring her chubby little cheeks, but I’m getting emails left right and center from students, parents, and occasionally my sub. Ugh.
