Welp, I made it through the first full day back teaching my Montessori class.  I do however feel like I could sleep for the next 3 days straight. Thank goodness (with this pregnancy) that I'm only teaching on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I really don't know how I'd do it 5 days a week - I would, but I'm sure you'd hear grunts and moans.  Props to all the 9-5 working pregnant women. Seriously, this shiz is tiring and hard!  

I have 10 little ones in my class, 6 of which are new students, 4 of which just turned 3, so needless to say, these first few weeks will be all about figuring out routines, following classroom rules and getting acquainted with one another (and me constantly reminding little ones to put their work away and roll up their work mats.) We'll get there though and soon when the days start to run on their own in a seamless sort of way, it's magic.  Until then, I'll be loving these littles and teaching them the ways of the classroom as best I can.... and also taking naps after school every week!



  1. God it wasn't enjoyable teaching the first 20 wks of Nori's preg. I was so glad when I could stop puking in little kid peed and pooped on toilets!!!!! I totally feel ya. Once you hit the honey moon stage you're golden! Then the kids love on your belly and it's so fun! Especially when they give you name suggestions! Haha.

  2. Aw! Good luck with your new students!

  3. haha. yes, mel! thankfully i'm not sick- just super exhausted. it will be interesting to see what they think once my belly starts to really show. they're so funny :)

  4. Enjoy your naps! I work in a jail and worked with both my pregnancies 40 hours a week until my due dates. The beauty of the first pregnancy was that I could go home and sleep. With the second one, I always had a toddler waiting for me. It's all well worth it though.


Thank you for coming by and taking the time to comment. Have a wonderful day!
