I'm a Teacher, that's what I do!

Lucky Tessa (or poor Tessa, depending on your outlook)! She has a teacher for a mother. That means every day will be packed with learning experiences! Tuesday was no exception. It was Election Day! Tessa got to hear all about the different offices for which we were voting, and I explained who was running and how I felt about him/her. I also read her the propositions, at least the ones I didn't quite understand myself. I hoped that reading them aloud would help. It didn't. Then, even though I'm a permanent Vote by Mail voter, I still like to go to the polls, so Tessa and I walked to our neighbor's garage to place our vote! (I've been voting either at the County Admin building or a school for the past 10 years, so I just loved going to somebody's home to vote! It made me feel so suburban!) Tessa got her "I Voted" sticker, and she fell asleep on the walk home! Two birds with one stone! I just knew reading her the ballot would get her to finally take a nap!


  1. Thank you for your sweet prayers! My mom was a teacher growing up & it was wonderful. She was always out of school for the summer & Christmas. I think its a fab job to have while having a family.

  2. Thank you for the comment on my blog! As a retired teacher, I know the joy you are having in getting to stay home with your precious baby girl! She is adorable! Enjoy every minute because you never get the chance to "do it over"!!

    I would be honored if you would link up with my blog!

    Blessings to you and your sweet family!
