Is it...

...a good thing to drink too much wine the night before you meet your only babies' very first 'real' school teachers? You know, the ones who will be spending more waking hours MY babies than myself? The ones who may very well have more influence and more impact on MY babies than I do myself? The ones they may have a crush on? The ones they may say they are in love with?

Teachers. I do love them. All of them. Yes, every single one. For all the reasons that we all know, and that my brain is currently too fuzzy to write about properly, in the fashion they deserve. (I just typed desevred). See? Thank God for teachers.

But I love my babies more. And I wanna make sure they feel the same. But I won't say it out loud, not until they are at least 10 years old, cause at that point, that's just too creepy.

My brother loved his grade 2 teacher so much he cried all day on that last day of grade 2. I was in grade 4. They came and got me to ask me to try to get him out of the boys bathroom. I couldn't, he was crying too much. She let him bring home the class hamster for the whole summer. It made him feel better, that made him feel good. That's what teachers do.

But I love them more.

So, how much Chardonnay is too much the night before you let them go? I am not (I just typed snot) sure.

I'll let you know.

Hugs and YOU CAN DO IT.
As for how much is too much. I need to make my own to keep up with all the things like that.

Your doing fine. Let us know how happy they are and how heartbroken you are. (I still am at times)

Love and BIG HUGS

Wishing you all the best this morning. I hope your head doesn't hurt too much and that you actually find stuff to fill your day. Please be sure to post some photos, and include a self portrait of you crying, I know you will do it ;).

I bet those teachers are used to meeting Chardonay'ed mamas on the first day of school.

Good luck.

I’ve been reading and enjoying your blog for sometime now. I love how your posts truly connect to your readership. I’m interested to have an interactive/link-up/post with you. I’ve written a book that you and your audience might enjoy and am preparing to do a virtual blog tour and would love an opportunity to participate on your blog.

However, my young adult book ‘Turtle Feet, Surfer’s Beat’ is only a small part of what I’m trying to build. The book itself revolves around a typical suburban teen girl, Penelope, from the States that is forced to go to Costa Rica with her parents for her father’s job assignment. Involuntarily, her parents sign up Penelope and her little brother to spend two weeks at the Leatherback turtle biological station (for ‘their own good’). Penelope, obviously isn’t pleased but forgives the horrid accommodations and the never ending bug brigade as she sees the turtle and instantly pledges to do all she can to help it from extinction. But hang ten, dudes! Penelope is about to get help. One lonely night, as she’s patrolling the beach for turtle poachers she stumbles and falls directly into the arms of the local surf champ. Together they dive into the world of surfing and marine preservation.

These days, we are constantly facing global problems that seem to be getting worse and worse daily. Living in Costa Rica, I’ve been inspired to take action. I started by writing this book and am now developing a community of teens, surfers, artists, scientist, and everyone else who is interested in working together to have fun while helping out.

I would love to join forces with you and your readers in a fun, interactive way. I will gladly write a post about your blog (and whatever you will like to plug:), plus a link with your blog to my website and blog, in return for a short interview and mention on your blog.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon. To start we can link up!
Thanks so much,
