We went to the Children's Museum in Escondido for the first time today. We could spend all day every day there. Gets us out of the house and it means I don't feel guilty about not going to the park. This little guy is obsessed with vaccuum cleaners. for real. He runs to the closet, opens the door, points to the vaccuum and whines in a high pitched voice,"Mom!(x 1000)(not mmommy. not momma. just mom.)until I ackonwledge the vaccuum. So, we wentto this museum with a million gazillion new fun toys, and what does he do for a good 30 minutes? You guessed it... Tongue out. concentrating. very serious about vaccuuming.
I'm blocked right now. paralyzed. lethargic. Finding it hard to make myself finish this journal. or even work on it. reading the artist's way and she talks about needing to be able to make bad art and I think sometimes that fear just paralyzes me... or is it fatigue? the plan is to stay up tonight and make some progress... I'll let you know how it goes...
Okay, that's not fair. January just flew by... where did it go... I have no idea. And now Valentine's Day is upon us. And I love Valentine's Day. Love it. let me explain... I teach kindergarten! And what is thehappiest day in school besides Halloween? Valentine's Day.
It is the sweetest cutest thing because you forget that the kids have never done this before. In their whole life. So they write every student's name on a Valentine (a humongous feat for a kinder) and then they put on their little mailman hats and deliver them to each other. And when they get this huge pile of love notes, they really can't believe it. They are beside themselves. Elisa says, (gasp) "It has my name on it! It's from Shannon. Mrs. B., Shannon gave my a Valentine!!!!" That x 20. So sweet.
May you surprise the people you love with Valentine's today.
