James is enjoying his sweet potato this morning. 💙💜
James and I went to the farmers market little later than we usually do because I was behind in some housework. I grabbed a pineapple-passion fruit aqua fresca and a pork tamale with green sauce before we went to find a shady spot in the grass to hang out. He was loving hanging out on the blanket until he discovered I was eating. He can't crawl yet but he tried hard to get to me and climb my lap to get to my plate. And he was vocal about wanting my tamale too. I ended up giving him a few bites of masa. Then he found a new activity of ripping grass out of the ground. #sweetbabyjames
My cutie of a baby boy is 7 months old now. The time sure does fly! #sweetbabyjames
#repost @missdecarbo said it so perfectly so I am sharing this here: ***** I don’t get a bonus for helping your child learn how to read. I don’t get a bonus for teaching your child how to write so that he or she can communicate with the world. I don’t get a bonus for any of the hugs I give, the tears I wipe away when your child is missing you, or the lesson of love I give when your child’s pet fish dies. ———— I don’t get reimbursed for the boxes of crayons your child needs after winter break. I don’t get reimbursed for the supplies I buy so that we can make applesauce or carve pumpkins. I don’t get reimbursed for the boxes of tissues I buy for our room when cold season has left us empty. ———— I don’t get paid overtime when I stay at school for special meetings to discuss your child’s needs. I don’t get paid overtime for the Family Literacy Night so that we can get our communities involved in our school. I don’t get paid overtime for giving up my planning time to help my students. ———— I’m not asking for a bonus. I’m not asking for reimbursement. I’m not asking for overtime. ———— That’s not why I became a teacher. Your child is why I became a teacher. ———— So please don’t suddenly tell me that I can have a bonus for carrying a weapon into my classroom- a classroom that is built on the foundation of safety, love, acceptance, and security. ———— Keep your bonus, Mr. Trump. Your money is not welcome here. ————— -Miss DeCarbo 💕 @missdecarbo #notonemore
I have been so inspired by the students in #Parkland for turning their pain into action. Their voices give me hope that things might actually change this time. All the talk of arming teachers with guns is insane! #Armmewith some common sense gun laws, provide more time for teaching and less time for standardized testing, and resources to help our kids process their feelings and heal from trauma. We need basic school supplies for our learning and we need the specialty staff like counselors and psychologists to help our students.
When you go to Barnes & Noble and your baby reaches for a book, so you show it to him and he loves it so much that he screams if you try to take it away or show him anything else. There is nothing left to do bhut buy the book!
So much for my dog are my homework... more like my son ate my bills! 🤣🤣 #babyboy #sweetbabyjames
Before I put James to play on the floor, I always put a blanket down. And every single time, he tries to wrap himself up in it. LOL
