Life is moving so fast.
10 days ago, Isis couldn't pick up a small piece of food & get it into her mouth. She could pick it up, but then she'd drop it continuously in the process to try to get it close to her mouth. She also couldn't fully pull herself up to standing. She was still getting used to crawling.
10 days ago, I was fairly confident in myself as a teacher. I was still in the beginning of my student teaching experience. I wasn't quite to the point of looking for jobs, but I was excited about the possibility.
Now here we are & Isis started putting food in her mouth one day like it was no big deal - like it had never been a struggle. She pulled herself to standing & now will cruise between the ottoman & the couch. She can crawl across the room quicker than I thought possible. 10 days!!
I am still fairly confident in myself as a teacher, although I went to a seminar where I saw an absolutely fabulous teacher & I was pretty much completely intimidated by where I'm headed in my life. This woman was amazing & I really hope that one day I can teach like that. I am suddenly finding myself in dire need to finish my resume because there is a Kindergarten teaching position available mid-year right now that I could apply for & possibly start in January! It's in the county I want to work in & at a school I would love. If I want any chance of even interviewing, I suddenly need my resume finished & my letters of recommendation & portfolio together ASAP.
It's fall break & I feel the need to slow down, but suddenly realized that there isn't much slowing down anymore. In the midst of everything going on with student teaching & all the work I need to do to prepare to fiinish that as well as apply for jobs, I still desperately need to really clean my house & it's hard to fit that all into nap times because now that Isis is just moving & standing & getting around everywhere, I have to focus constantly. Yes, that was one big run-on sentence (hello 4th grade teacher in me), but that's where I'm at right now.
And you know what...
I'm LOVING it.
This kind of craziness is where I really show what I'm made of. It's always been like that for me. When things start to seem crazy, I bear down & get some junk done! So off I go.
Super Mom is on the move!!!
