The hubby and I are expecting a Little Mr this November!!

We are so excited to meet our little man. I am currently 21 weeks and feeling great! The little mr. is due to arrive Nov 30, however, the Dr. expects I'll probably be a little earlier (baby's measuring further than my original due date).  This makes it even more exciting because (regardless of when he decides to show his face) we have a whole bunch of family and close family friends coming into town for Thanksgiving!!  What a special time it will be! :)

Now that the 'cats outta the bag' I can apologize for my absence on this little ol' blog over the past 5 months! You'll forgive me now… right? :)

Since I've been feverishly trying to get all my 'ducks in row' with school before the year starts and things get really crazy, I've been working a lot on getting my Sub Binder all ready to go!  I'll have pictures up as soon as it's all complete.
So in the spirit of this joyous occasion, I'm putting my Long-Term Sub Binder on sale (HALF OFF) for the next 24 hours! :)
Here's a peek:

The new cover option:


I'm slightly OCD and have a problem with relinquishing control (especially over my classroom). Any advice/tips on how to prepare for 3 months off?
I know I'll be busy and in love with baby but until he's here I will be stressing!


  1. just breathe and know that it will be ok. expect that when you come back there will be a reteaching time of classroom procedures (almost like starting the school year again). your kiddos will be in good hands. my first child was born during the summer, so i started that school year 3 weeks late. my second child is due in january so it will be interesting to see how returning from maternity leave goes this time. congrats!!!

  2. Congratulations! I am due in January with my 1st! I want to get everything set up and organized this summer so I'm ready to be out for a few months too. I just bought your binder!

  4. Congrats! I am due November 29th, and I am also a teacher!! It's a little overwhelming preparing for baby and the school year, but I know I can do it! So happy for you!

  5. Thanks ladies!! I am slowly trying to accept the fact that I need to just LEAVE and tell myself they will be fine! :) I think I can, I think I can!!

  6. Congratulations! ... and what a blessing to receive around Thanksgiving. November is also such a beautiful time of year to have a baby...
    God bless your growing family!
