Dinosaur Babies

Last week, in the middle of class, a student thought out loud to herself, “I can’t wait until Miss T is pregnant with a baby.” After taking a few moments to fully acknowledge exactly what she just said, the only response I could come up with was, “as opposed to pregnant with a dinosaur?” The relationships I form with my kids are complicated to say the least; I have to simultaneously fill the role of teacher, parent, friend, mentor, and disciplinarian, but I’m having a hard time finding under which role this dizzy daydream of a pregnant teacher falls. If you have any suggestions, please share.

On another note, I’m back!!! After a long (and unexpected) blogging hiatus, I am happy to be back sharing my pointless  scattered quirky thoughts and findings from around the world and its wide web. Additionally, I have wandered into a nice little apartment, with a few nice little roommates in one nice big city…New York! I am a firm believer/practicer of bucket lists, but what good is having a list of things to do without ever actually doing them? Checking off living in NYC was one heck of an experience 🙂 It’s funny how quickly the “awe” wears off and you find yourself becoming a little less impressed and a little more annoyed, but I’ve made it a point to remember that I’m living in “the city that never sleeps,” “the concrete jungle where dreams are made of,” “the city so nice they named it twice,” “the big apple,” “the place where you ride subways that smell like morning breath and pee and you don’t care because it’s New York.” OK, I made that last one up, but it’s still true!

So before I bid you farewell on this wintery Wednesday, (there is such a thing as too cold!) I want to share a few nifties from the past few weeks. It feels good to be back!

A quote for some creative motivation.

That awkward moment someone sings your song better than you. I’m lookin at you T. Swift.

Just some inspiration for your morning: here, here, and here.

This would be very useful information if Cash Cab was still on…(I love you Ben Bailey)

That’s all for now! Happy hump day 😉
