I feel like summer is quickly coming to an end. It has been such a great summer. The first summer I have not had to work or go to school since I was 15. Last summer I didn't technically have to go to work or school, but I did give birth to my precious baby boy. My precious baby boy who has been giving us a run for our money these days. He is throwing temper tantrums, and is being ultra clingy to me. Which is nice when he want to cuddle, but not nice when I try to do anything. Plus I think Benny's daddy gets his feelings a little hurt. We feel like there is a fine line between being there for our son when he needs us, and us smothering him. We don't want him to cry every time we leave him, or even the room. I find it especially hard to be consistent with this.
We are currently not on birth control in hopes of having baby number two. Some will be excited to hear this, others probably think we are crazy. Benny just turned one.....but for us we really feel that it is time. Although my timing wasn't completely thought out...My bestie and I are going to Six Flags in two weeks, so if it turns out that I am pregnant I will have to cancel. Which bums me out because I haven't been there in a long time!! Then I feel bad for thinking that because it would be such a blessing for me to get preggers. I am both excited and a little scared for baby number two. I heard is is a crazy change going one to two...your thoughts?
I get they keys back to my classroom on August 13th. Yeah!!! I am super excited for the upcoming school year. I love teaching and I am so excited to try out some new material. Question, I am contemplating what theme to go with the first weeks of school...Campground or zoo??? I usually just do fun stuff the first couple of weeks, before we go into our actual units. Mostly just to make the room look cute and to have the kids feel comfortable in the class.
Oh yeah, and we are going to the Redwoods on Wednesday and Thursday with friends. This will be Ben's second time to the Big Trees. He went the first time when he was 5 days old, I know CRAZY! I am a little worried about the hike, I will be carrying an extra 22lbs on my back. Maybe our friends will help us out! Then on Saturday we leave for Disneyland. Benny will not be joining us, it is an adults only Disneyland trip :) We are going with a great group of friends though, I am super excited, but of course sad to leave Benny.
I never really know how you are supposed to say goodbye on a blog...all the ways I think of just sound dorky...but, it's late and I better get going. Have a great week!!!
