Five for Friday

Yay!!! It's Friday!!! So, now that I'm on summer break... why am I so excited that it's Friday? Isn't EVERY day Friday? Well, no. My husband gets one day a week off and it's on... you guessed it! Friday!!! I am so excited to have him home today. :)

Today I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday linky party.

1. My daughter Karis is 2 yrs old, almost 3. With the boys, I potty trained them by the time they were 2 1/2 yrs old. But she is my last one so really, what's the rush? Well, Karis was having none of that and decided this week that she wanted to wear big girl underwear and so she basically potty trained herself while I *might* have discouraged it since we have a loooong road trip next week and diapers are just easier - don't judge me.  Then the other day she informed me that she no longer needed a treat for going potty since big girls don't get treats for going potty. WHAT???!! Why is she growing up so fast?? Waaaaaaaa!!!!

Cha, Cha, Cha, Cha, Changes....

Well, it's summertime and things have been changing around here. First off, my daughter Karis has been asking to sleep in a big bed for quite some time now. She is almost 3 and if I had it my way, she would have been in a crib until she was 5. She is my third child and I've noticed that things are just more relaxed when you get to #3. Both my boys were potty trained and out of a crib by 2 1/2 yrs old, but with her???.... naaah... what's the rush, really???  Sometimes we are just happy that she is alive and knows her name. Ha! Yes, there *may* have been times when we've forgotten that we have 3 kids to watch over while in a crowded area. We may have "lost" her for a little bit. This might  have happened to me -----> (taking mental count at the campground) ...child #1. check. child #2. check........ (mins pass)... child #3. WAIT. CHILD #3??!!!!! Ok, so before you call CPS I assure you that the family we found her with was a nice looking family. JUUUUST JOKI…

Hello? Anyone there?


Sorry that I've been MIA for these past few days. It is summer and while my heart has been wanting to write... the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Lol. I've been keeping busy with our garage makeover, creating a new TPT unit that will align my ELA Houghton Mifflin curriculum with the Common Core Standards and thinking maps, and going to an exciting training today and tomorrow.

Today I went to a depth and complexity training at USC.  This training will not only help me teach gifted students but all students as well. It's been so good but total information overload! I'm serious... at one point I thought that I saw smoke coming from my head. I'm already thinking of creating a depth and complexity unit for TPT this summer.  My mind was spinning from so many ideas and my brain was exhausted by the end of the day. We go back tomorrow for one last session so I'm *hoping* to get good sleep tonight so that my mind can be clear. I say *hoping* because, w…

Currently and My Blog Got a FACE LIFT!!!!! :)

Yay!!!! My blog finally got a face lift!!!! One thing that it means is that I will not be needing my first post found here. I LOVE LOVE my new design from Honey Bunches! They were so easy to work with and totally accommodating to me. I mean I am high maintenance like to have things done a certain way and they were GREAT with all my requests. If you or anybody you know are thinking about giving your blog a fresh new look, I highly recommend them. You will not be sorry. :)

I am linking up with Farley at  Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for her May Currently.

- I love my kiddos but let's be honest... I also LOVE it when they are asleep. That is the time I get to reconnect with my honey and just have some time for myself without having to break up any arguments or wipe snotty noses. Right now though, my hubby is painting our garage.... which I will be joining him once I finish this post. This is the "Me" time I'm talking about right here. :)
