Master's degree blues

I'm taking my first grad. class toward my Master's degree. I had no idea how hard it would be. Coursework + teacher work + being a mom + being a wife (neglecting this big time!) = MISERABLE!!!!!

Yep, I'm guilty...

I'm a teacher and did a horrible job of keeping my own child reading every day over the summer. :( I know I should have done a better job. I see how it can be difficult for parents because life can...

Every Sat. night...

My DH, DD and I have family night every Sat. night. We take turns choosing the activity. Tonight's my DD's night. I think she is choosing either build a campfire, or play a board game.

Call a taxi!

She IS a bad influence. :)

My mom, too, is a bad influence in a different way. I eat a lot of junk food at her house. Probably emotional eating.

We had considered naming her Disney, but my DD really liked Molly!

Molly is super sweet and having a great time. We are trying to get our dog use to her!
