Every teacher loves books right?  
 


My sweet preschooler is now a 7th grader, but I wanted to share some books that we loved when he was little.

Goodnight Moon, a classic!  I read this every night when my sweet baby boy was growing in my tummy!

Oh, and pass the tissues for this one!  I read it the night before my son's first day of preschool.  I boo-hooed through the whole thing!  

 I know that if I pulled this book out today, my son would start giggling.

Oh, and boy...I'll bet I can recite this one still today!

I have linked up with Kindergarten Smorgasboard to share all the books we love!!!

Do you have a preschooler?  
Are they ready for that all important jump into kindergarten?
Are you a preschool teacher?
Well, if any of these describe you, read on...

I LOVE this fabulous article from Parents Magazine.

It seems that just yesterday my sweet {not so} little boy was in preschool.  I could never seem to find enough resources back then to get him ready for the big jump to kindergarten.  Thankfully, he has always had that intrinsic love of learning.
Thankfully this fabulous Preschool Party bundle has come along for everyone that still has a preschooler at home or teaches preschool.  So...

I stumbled across this very cool blog a little while ago and thought about how much I loved the topics she used and wrapped it all up in a whole lot of fun and called it

http://sunnydaysinsecondgrade.blogspot.com/
(Click on the pic to take you to Sunny Days in Second Grade's blog.)

It IS called My Truth MONDAY, so we'll just call me Tardy to the Party.  LOL!  
But I loved this topic so much that I had to still blog about it.

Do you ever pick a word, just one little word, to sum something up?  So often people pick a word to help them achieve or survive the upcoming year.  Last year my word was "faith" and little did I know how much I would rely on it throughout the year and in my every day life.  Faith will always be my word, but this year I am adding a new word.  This year


Why excel?  Do you ever feel like you have 20 things going on at once and can't seem to do anything well, mostly because you are spread so thin?  That's how I feel most of the time.  So I have decided to pick a few things and do them well...hopefully really well!

First on the list is mommyhood.  That's always a top priority, but if I'm being honest, sometimes mommyhood gets pushed aside by run here and do this.  Back to the top of the list it goes and it's going to stay there.  I mean, look at this sweet boy.  How can I not make him number 1 always?!?!  Besides, I think I blinked my eyes and he went from this
(Insert awwwwws here.)
to this.

Next on the list is all things school-related...my new ALM program that I'm teaching...my TPT store...and my poor, poor neglected blog.

(I also have my finger in another little venture that I will be revealing at a later date...something fun and not school related.)

I also need to do some long overdue excelling in fitness...UGH!  That always seems to be the hardest.  But see that adorable boy up there?  I've hired him to be my personal trainer.  (and I'm so glad he works cheap!)  Better inside will (hopefully) make for better outside and better outside will make for a better inside!

Along the way I plan to do a lot of excelling in laughing, loving, having fun, hanging with friends and family.  I plan to excel at not stressing out and enjoying life more.  I mean you've seen my wonderful kid, but take a look at these amazing women...
 I am so lucky to have them in my life...the greatest of friends...not to mention my fabulous friends that I collaborate with often in the online world. 

 OK, maybe that seems like a lot,  but I will be updating on how I am doing.

So...what's your one little word?  I'd love to hear.  Feel free to leave a comment and tell me what it is.
