Baby Fever


Me @ work

Me @ work

Ever since I stopped working as a pre-school teacher, my “baby fever” seems to have grown exponentially. Almost every day at my new job, which has nothing to do with childhood education, I think about the kids I used to work with and how much fun we had together. I imagine how much fun my own future child(ren) and I will have. My goal right now is to save up some money, purchase my own home, and run a small pre-school group 3-4 days a week. (PS. Constantly reading ‘mommy blogs’ doesn’t help my situation either.)

This customer service job I am doing is so soul crushing sometimes I can’t even fathom having to get up the next day and do it all over again. It’s not the customers that make it this way, but mostly the fact that I feel my training was rushed and I didn’t retain all the information that I should have. I don’t feel equipped to properly help people with certain issues. Some of the tasks I have learned quickly and have no issue with, but some things are very complicated and I feel like I’m constantly having to ask for help. The fact that I get to work from home is the only thing keeping me from leaving the job at this point. Oh well. It’s all a means to an end, right?

Dedicated to Sandy Hook Elementary Victims


Last night my boyfriend and I were decorating a little gingerbread house village. While we were doing it I was silently thinking about the little one’s who were sadly taken away from the world last Friday. Did they get to make a gingerbread house this year before Friday happened? I’m sure the teacher’s who were killed enjoyed doing fun Christmas activities like this with the kids at school, too. I know as a preschool teacher, Christmas was one of the times I had the most fun at work with the kids. When Sandy Hook happened, I thought of my old preschool students and imagined them in that situation. Horrible.

I’ve decided my Gingerbread town will be dedicated in memory of all the Sandy Hook victims, students and teachers alike. Your lives have meaning, and your memory will live forever in so many hearts and minds around the world.

Whenever I eat a piece of this Gingerbread I will think about you, and hope that you are at peace wherever you are now.
