Pregnancy=Impatient, Emotional Mess

To brag about my utterly AMAZING husband who never ceases to amaze me. I was teaching my 4th graders about rounding with decimals and our secretary knocked on my door and delivered the most BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers. I'd post a picture, but I don't have a camera here. OH my goodness I almost started crying. Kaleb knew the kind of a morning I was having and sent them to brighten my day! Boy, did they ever. Kaleb Alce Breaux, I love you more than you will EVER know. And not just because you sent me flowers. You are everything I ever dreamt of in a husband and so.much.more. I do not deserve you, but I sure am elated that God gave you to me! I LOVE YOU!!!

So these past couple weeks I have pretty much decided I don't really want to be a teacher anymore. Maybe it's because I'm tired all the time. Maybe it's because I don't like having so much to do outside my teaching hours. Maybe it's because I feel guilty that I can't stay at home with Ella (she cries the entire way to her school every morning telling me she doesn't want to go because she's going to miss me and "but i loooove you!!!"). Maybe it's because I was feeling okay about my students' progress until we got 4 new kids from Ike who have apparently been taught NOTHING at any of their other schools (i.e. adding, subtracting across zeros, place value, rounding). 4th and 5th graders. At any rate, all of these things together makes me greatly desire a change in profession or a lack of any profession.

I've decided my first choice (were we rich enough) would, of course, be to be a stay at home mom. Like that's gonna happen. My second choice, which may be just as good, would be to bake stuff. I love to bake. Why not make a career of it? I could start out like Paula Deen, baking stuff out of my home and selling it to people and then eventually having my own awesome bakery or cake shop or something. I just don't want to teach.

I AM very excited, however, about spending time with Leslie and Justin tonight and going on a date with my amazing husband tomorrow night!!!!!!!!

Aw..that was so sweet of Kaleb! I shed a tear. Don't give up on teaching from what I hear you are awesome at it. You just need to come here and work with us and I bet you would love it. :) But I understand about you want ing to be at home too.
