Having a baby changes everything!! ( A tribute to Kimmy)

Dear Diary,

Let me start out by saying this," I'm not having a baby!!!"
Now: This week goes down in history as the day I lost one (glad your still here bags!!)of my best school friends. I am hardly even to where I can talk about it but I will try to fight through the pain.

This is Kimmy. Kimmy has been my thick and thin friend for the past 3 years. We started teaching at the same time. She has been my shoulder to cry on, my friend to laugh with (or at occasionally), basically my Dee-ay-double-you-gee, dawg!! I knew that the day was coming when she would have to abandon me, but I really thought we would be able to finish out the year. But something came between us. What you might ask?? A boy!!! I know, I'll let you catch your breath for a second...
I used to be able to e-mail her at any point during the day, mostly to talk about some crazy student, or an even CRAZIER parent. But there will be no more of that. Monday, something happened in class and the first thing I thought about was telling Kimmy. Well, 3 text messages, and 2 sore thumbs later, I decided that this just wasn't going to work. A story that used to take one quick e-mail is now a never ending text message. I don't think I can keep that up.

Mama always said, "Killer, never let a boy come between two friends. Boys come and go, but friends...they're forever." Well, mama must have never seen a cute thang like this before (or had some of the crazy friends I've had!!)

Maddox's outfit is a courtesy of K.O. (killer's orignals)

Kimmy, you can let this angel come between us any time!! I will truly miss you next year!

Love and Hugs,

Twinkie (Take Two)

So, if you saw my post several weeks ago, you remember that one day I was visiting Weeze in the mail room, and my brother walked by in the same outfit as me.

(here we are)

Saturday, my mom brought my sister to spend a few days with me. You would not believe that when she pulled up in the car, we had on the exact same outfit!! I guess it's true what they say..."Birds of a feather, flock together"!!

Missing Mom

Dear Diary,
Today is my mom's birthday, and I am so sad that I can't spend it with her. Not only am I going to miss her birthday, but Mother's day is on Sunday, and she is going out of town. I mean seriously, who goes to hang out with a long lost friend, whom she rarely ever gets to see ;) on Mother's Day. She is trying to justify it by saying that she will see us all periodically throughout the day, but I just don't know. I should just be glad that she is going to stop by and see me on her way back home! Honestly though, I know that she hasn't seen this friend in ages, and she deserves a vacation as much as anyone. Anyways, I love you mom, and I hope you enjoy your day!!
Love and Hugs,

"Raising The Bar" in Geometry

Nothing really exciting happened today at school. I stumbled across this picture from a few months ago. Some of the girls thought it would be fun to do our own 'raising the bar'. I decided that it was cute enough to share. None of these boys are squatting or standing on tip toes. The tallest one is like 6'7!

Crazy Days In Geometry

So, a few days ago in after lunch I learned that apparently everyone doesn't possess the same love for egg salad sandwiches as I do. Everyone started gagging when they came into the classroom and told me it smelled like...well it just smelled bad. One of my male student's proceeded tell me that I was gross. I had to remind him of something that he did earlier this year. It made us laugh so hard that I decided it was funny enough to write in my blog. I am just copying and pasting this from the e-mail that I sent Kim after it happened that day. The first event is the one I mentioned earlier. The second happened later in that class period. Let me just say that this kid is one of those that would be so fun if you only had to hang out with him and not try to teach him...He is a character.

(All names have been changed to protect the innocence of these precious students)
First: L get up and walks over to another row, and next thing you know we hear this tremendous noise come from his rear. That alone was hilarious. But to make things worse. He did it right in front of Basketball Player and Cheerleader's face and I thought seriously that Cheerleader was going to pass out. B.P. got up and walked to the other side of the classroom. I almost cried, it was so funny! So then L comes over to my desk and whispers to me what he was trying to do. Apparently he calls it crop dusting. He said it's when you go to another side of the room and rotate while you 'you know what' so you can get everyone. Then after you walk away you get to laugh at everyone's reaction. The only problem was...he did it VERY loudly.

Second: I don't know if you have ever listened to the Steve Harvey morning show, but any time he's talking about getting to know one another biblically , he always refers to it as the cookie. "Don't break off the cookie before your married.", "All men want is a piece of the cookie" etc. He says this all the time. So today I had a cookie on my desk from a few of my cheerleaders, and L really wanted it. He kept making comments like, "Miss McCants please let me get a piece of that cookie", "Miss McCants, you know you want to give me that cookie". I could hardly contain myself. Thankfully, no one in my 5th period class listens to Steve Harvey. Seriously I was getting so embarrassed.

There is one more story that I would love to share about L but there are a couple reasons I won't. 1)You really need to see the gesture he was making to truly understand the humor. 2) I really don't think I can tell the story without sounding inappropriate. Needless to say, L did get detention for this one. He is so much fun, but he really has no censor. I will miss him next year when he's not in my class!

Hanging with the fellas!

Dear Diary,

Last night I was able to have a slumber party with two of the most amazing adorable guys on this planet.

While the parents treated themselves to a fun concert in Atlanta, I was able to spend some quality time with the boys. After school, we hung out in my classroom for a bit while a few students finished a quiz. Cam had a ball playing webkinz (I had to drag him away from the computer!), while Pork Chop and I took turns writing our names on the dry erase board. Sometimes I'm amazed by the little things that entertain children. After that we had some down time at my house watching Lady and the Tramp...Chop LOVES Lady and the Tramp. Then it was off to supper at McD's and later to church. The entire evening was such a blast. I really enjoy the time I can spend with them, especially knowing that these sweet precious little angels, will eventually grow up into big boys that don't love to snuggle!!
Before we went to bed Chop said,"Killer, I wish you could spend the night every night...I love you". I can't say enough how much I love these boys!!

Love and Hugs,
