I cannot help but notice how many parents are taking to social media to blast their children’s teachers for asking for certain supplies and making accusations about their children’s teachers when, according to Forbes, teachers spent an average last year of $513 on their classrooms last year alone. This does not include what the schools supply as well; however, funding is getting more limited than ever and teachers have to be resourceful, especially when they are trying to create and teach innovative, interactive, and interesting lessons for their students.
Let’s face it, after about the 5th month of pregnancy your life is pretty much consumed by your precious, life sucking children. You know you would not have it any other way, but many marriages and partnerships suffer because of it...
It was Elizabeth Bishop who said “The art of living isn’t hard to master,” but what about moving on, or yet, starting fresh? As the turn of the year commences a new beginning, a fresh start, where we make promises to ourselves that this year, we will lose the weight, or quit smoking, or just try to become a better person.

My daughter, Emmerson, is entering a really fun age.

This simply means we go somewhere that we can sit down, chat, and share a meal together and eventually try to catch a cheap movie.
I love to make lists. I make lists every day at work to make sure that I follow through on all of my tasks, I make lists of goals when cleaning the house (my husband dreads these days), and it is even rubbing off on my five year old daughter...
