five question friday

1. How close to your childhood dreams is your life now?
i would love to say that i'm living the fairy tale dream, but honestly thats not true. except for my baby girl! i always dreamed i would have this beautiful little girl, and that part came true.  as "wild" as she is, i wouldnt change her for the world, and am so blessed and honored to be her mommy
2. What is one must have item for the summer?
AIR CONDITIONER!!! Last summer it went out and that was a hot mess! literally! a HOT mess!

3. Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don't have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?)
my parents made me read during the summer. what ever was on the suggested list, like i had to read all of them!!! ugh! i don't think it helped at all by the way, and im a teacher

4. Do you can or freeze fresh produce?
i dont! but i guess you could.  i by frozen fruits and veggies all the time

5. Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning?
yes! i cant function the night before, because i'm too tired from that day, so i get up at 5:30 and make lani's breakfast lunch, shower, pack her diaper bag, may be a load of dishes or put some dinner in the crock pot! i'm very efficient between the hours of 5 and 7 am... but dont even think to ask me to do anything after 10 pm... you're SOL

Today  Lani went to the Celebration spray park in Allen with her bff Addison.  She loved it! 

The mommies were a bit nervous, with all the big kids running around!!! If you want to take your kiddos out there, the link gives all the info.. Great place for kids age 1-10.

The rest of the gang!

5 Question Friday!!!! (a day late... as always)

1. If you had to choose, how would you prefer to choose to spend money...on landscaping or a pool? 
pool... all the way... its a 100+ degrees in the texas summer and a pool would be a very nice addition to the heat

2. (Scott likes to get things stirred up...) Death penalty, yay or nay?
i'm pretty torn on this one.  as a tax payer, i personally don't want to pay for them to live; but i also feel like, its the easy way out! if a victims family has to live everyday dealing with the consequences, then so should the criminal 

3. What's the worst thing your kid has gotten into when you turned your back/blogged/showered/blinked?
so far climbing out the crib and giving herself a black eye... bu then again she is only 1

4. How often do you REALLY go to the dentist?
at least twice a year

5. What is your favorite animal (doesn't have to be a pet-type animal)?
 a butterfly... i know technically its a bug! but that is still a living thing, therefore an animal!


My AP gave us an assignment to find out if our kids could tell us one thing about them that would make us a better teacher, what would it be???

these are just a few...
~my parents are divorced
~i'm very forgetful
~1 speak 3 lanuages
~i'm very impatient
~i was in special ed
~ i need more reminders
~ i like to write poetry

... so what is the one thing you wish your teachers knew about you?

(Note: if you're reading from facebook, go to to comment)
