So the students have had a HORRID day which has made my day not so great as well. However, there have been some people to make this day brighter for me so I wanted to share it. My wonderful husband brought me my favorite holiday drink from Starbuck's...decaf chocolate peppermint mocha with soy in case you were wondering...and bought me my favorite kind of chapstick. In case you do not know, I HAVE to have chapstick on my person at all times and today I did not. So, he used his valued free period to go to Ingles since we had no lunch food and bought these extras just because he is that wonderful. That made me happy.

Then, there is another cutie pie who brightens up my day. He is a second grader who comes for tutoring. Today, it was noisy in our classroom due to chapel music going on in the next room. He told me he was "vewy distwacted." So, he grabs two tissues, puts them in his ears and says "Okay, now I am weady." I wish I had a picture.

It is nice that even on bad days, there are people there to make it brighter. Thank the Lord!

Not in any order

Okay so to clear up any confusion....
my children's book list is in no particular order. I just jot them down as I think of them.
Thanks for the suggestions you've given so far!

I Heart Children's Books

Well, as some of you know and some of you may not know, I LOVE children's books!!! I took a children's literature class in college, and our professor would read children's books to us in class, give recommendations, etc. It was fabulous! So, my love for kiddie books grew. Now my wonderful friend, Leah is having a baby soon so my children's book fetish has finally come in handy. So, she recommended that I create a list of kiddie books I would recommend. If you would like to see it, scroll down. It is down there. I have not listed ALL the books I enjoy because that would take me a long time, it would be lengthy and then I would not have more to post. But--please give me more recommendations. Obviously, I do not know of all the fantastic new books out there and I know there are oldies I may not know about so tell me what you like!

If you go to Barnes and Noble, go to the back...I am with the kids, reading. The End.

My hair

So, I was not thrilled about my hair being highlighted the first time, so I went back to my fabulous hair dresser and she did it again at no cost. It is now a vibrant red, dark brown and blonde. I think it is fun. I have decided that I only live once, and while I am here I am going to have a good time with my hair. The End.

Haven't posted in a while...

I have not posted in a while, I know. My problem is that when I come home from work, I am exhausted. All I want to do is brainless activity which usually means that sadly, I am watching TV, and going to sleep. So, this is a boring post just informing you that I have nothing exciting to post about. I will work on it. Maybe I could just make Leah write some bloggy stuff for me. How about you let me know what you think I should blog about and I will.
