The Wonderful World of Middle School

Well, it has almost been a full week of school and let me tell you it has been crazy. I anticipated that the first day of school would be chaotic but nothing prepared me for what I experienced on Monday. It was crazy town. I know one thing I; I went into the right profession and age group. I love those kids already. They are so funny and just wonderful to be around. I really like all of the teachers I am working with. It has been crazy but has settled down just a little bit since Monday. Right now I am in charge of two sixth grade boys who have Aspbergers, a form of Autism. They are wonderful but sometimes a little hard to control. They pretty much do and say whatever they want which can be funny. I did experience a small meltdown with one of them and that wasn't too fun. I hope the rest of the school year goes wonderful and I love my job! I can't wait to be in a school as a full time teacher!!!

Last Day

Today was officially my last day working for Wal-Mart. Kind of sad but I believe I'll get over it. I'm looking forward to getting my teaching career going. Everyone brought food and did a lot of nice stuff for me. Can't wait until Monday.

My Pretty Girl!

Just thought I would post a picture of my beautiful girl. She finds excitement in playing with anything and everything that is lying on the counter. Right now her favorite toy is our bag of Splenda. I can't believe how big she is getting! She came back yesterday from a visit with her grandparents in De Queen and she seemed to have had a great time. Too bad she has a pretty bad cold and isn't feeling too well, :(. Keep my little angel in your thoughts so she can start feeling well!

Missing Parker!

Parker is away from home for only the second time this weekend. She is staying with my parents until tomorrow afternoon. It has been nice to have a little break. I indulged in a mani/pedi and a haircut! I miss her terribly but I know every mommy and daddy needs a small break to compose themselves and recharge!! I def needed this before starting my job at McNair. I can't wait to see my beautiful little girl tomorrow.

I got the job!

I'm just super excited that I got the Special Education position at McNair Middle School. I can't wait to start. I'm so happy that I'm finally in a school and on my way to teaching! I just hope that I'm up to the task. Keep me in your thoughts. Parker is still growing like a weed and Jeff is still as wonderful as ever. I love them tremendously!!!

Four Month Check Up

Parker had her four month check up today even though she will be 5 months a week from today. We have such an awesome pediatrician that she stays booked up. The check up went well except for those dreaded shots. Thank goodness there were only three this time instead of the five we had before. Parker still WAS NOT happy about the shots at all. She screamed and screamed. I felt awful and useless.

The rest of the check up went well. She now weighs 14 lbs and 6 oz and she is 27 inches long. She just keeps growing and growing. Our pediatrician said she is just perfect. Which I very much agree with.

Keep me in your thoughts as I have a job interview at a middle school in Fayetteville tomorrow morning and I am super nervous. I sure hope I get it so I can say good bye to Wal-Mart for good. Well not for good I still have to shop there!
