Maybe someday I’ll figure out (and keep up) this blog thing.
Why I chose the title I did: I actually said “Don’t put boogers in your neighbor’s cereal” to a preschool student, which is something I would never have imagined having to say. Here is my very first postthat tells this story in more detail. So this blog is an attempt to keep a record of those silly things that happen in my life.
A few facts “about me”:
I’m a 40-something, married mom of 2 teens. I’ve been teaching preschool (4 and 5 year olds) since September 2002 and I was a stay at home mom for several years before that. I’ve also been a nanny and a day care teacher, but that was before I had my own children. I love teaching and I love being a mom. Both things give me the opportunity to dish out unusual advice, answer interesting questions and view life through the eyes of children. “Out of the mouths of babes…”
I’m also an avid reader who appreciates the written word in many forms. I am a lover of many kinds of music, a proud owner of an iPod, a pretty good singer, and I have been known to break into song for no apparent reason. I have a sarcastic sense of humor that leans towards the dark side, but I enjoy anything that can make me smile, or better yet, laugh. I’m a moderate liberal, if there is such a thing. I’m a firm believer in education, and a protector of children’s rights and well-being.
I hope you will enjoy my little corner of the blogging universe. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
