This grouping of kids are very special to me. They were the grouping that made going back to work worthwhile. I only hope that their new placements will be appropriate. I am so proud of one of my students who is a tiny little peanut who has made tremendous gains. She is going back to her school district and I have no fears for her. I know that what we have given her this year will stay with her for a long time. I am proud of my staff that has assisted with that.
As for me, my future is unclear, I switch off and on between going back and not. Next week I will likely tell everyone I am going back to school to be an lawyer, exotic dancer, ...
Although I haven't written about her in awhile, my own little peanut is doing great. She had a rough weekend last week- a little overstimulated. She is my chatterbox, talking in phrases most of the time now. Toilet training is going well and for the most part isn't having accidents at home. When she is alone with Daddy, she has had some accidents!

I have found that when looking for jobs in school districts they want dual certification and I only have my special education degree. So my thoughts right now are to see if I could get my elementary ed degree and work part time by substituting or doing something else. We could afford it, but the thought of losing money to do this upsets me tremendously! The problem is that change really scares me and in my gut, I think I will just end up accepting my transfer and back with the IU in the fall! But I am seriously going to explore my options. Pete is on board with whatever I do, even if I want to change careers and go back to school. That is sweet, but I am not that brave!! So next week I am going to be busy making many calls.
So I think I need a push to make a change.. Oh and if anyone has suggestions on a good place to take a vacation that includes the beach and is with in 5-6 hrs away, let me know. We need to book some place and I really don't go for the crowded beaches in Delaware/Maryland.

Not Me Monday is back!!
I haven't really been into posting a great deal lately for some reason. I thought that I would get back into by doing a Not Me Monday post.
I certainly did not let my daughter have a cupcake before dinner tonight, no not me. I am the queen of healthy food and would never let her have a cupcake.
I definately didn't spend the time that I could be napping yesterday on Mother's day doing school work, no not me.
I most certainly didn't stop my husband from taking Celia out to eat so that I could sleep a little longer yesterday because I kept thinking about all the things that he would need and finally just ask him to do it on another day, no not me (he certainly didn't wake me up to tell me that he was taking her out instead of letting me sleep and just leaving a note).
I am certainly not counting down each day until I am done with school for the year. I am certainly not extremly bummed out about my possible transfer for the 2nd year in a row.
My husband definately didn't clean 2 bathrooms top to bottom for Mother's Day, therefore proving to me that he is very good at cleaning bathrooms. No he would never do that!
