and the sky rained eggs

If you look past the scowl on my face the day was quite lovely.  A little bit of fun with the students, perhaps an egg dropped from the roof of the building and then off to a scorching hot retirement party.  Really, what is there ot so mile about.  Now the next few days call for letting Thea sleep in, putting my feet up and perhaps even having tea with a friend.  


Oh yes there it is again, holy moly


a chapter in slouch

Everything just expands and stretches and pants don’t stay up or can’t come up and I am driven out of my mind.  So on with these fantastic slouchy pants I just picked up from H&M and on with the day.  After all, there is not much time left in the school year and I can’t be worried about whether my pants will slide down during the day.

You know those pants that make you put your hands in your pockets and just make you kind of slink around, these are it for me?  I envision sun, sandals and just a little bit of slow to accompany these pants.  And I swear they give you a good hair day too.



Belly at 27 weeks exactly


a popsicle dream

Oh so casual and feeling fine.  Sunshine and lazy days abound at some point, with popsicle reams for my little girls and more ferocious kicks.   I glanced at this gold top and thought perhaps, perhaps it still fits and sure enough it did.  Now it is all I want to wear.


Necklaces abound, a combination of brown and blue and both pieces given to me by my mother. No tangles, no fuss, just memories.


When you give popsicles, you get a hug, that’s the rule in our house.

it rained school supplies today

Woke up to find I was 26 weeks pregnant, that puts a spring in your step metaphorically speaking.  There truly is no spring in my step and even my students have noticed how slow I am some days.  Oh well, with two in there I figured it is ok to slow down.  So on with sparkles and slouchy pants, so comfortable and about as close to sweats as I will ever get.

Happiness is when students present you with post-it notes and dry erase markers like they are a fine bottle of wine.  Once again brought to tears by my amazing students and their thoughtfulness.  Thea has conquered all of the baby gear, claiming it as her own.  It is particularly interesting too see her try to unstick herself from the Bumbo.  Kisses from husband and help froma father-in-law to try to finish the nursery ranks up there in happy land as well.




when in doubt wrap it up

I am having a bit of a fashion crisis, you see, the beely has gotten rather large and everything seems to be too short.  So the cute penilskirt outfit I had planned fell through when the slit on the back was a bit too revealing.  It doesn’t help that the weather has turned to a glorious 80 degrees and I am trying to figure out if I like the airconditioning or not.

So sometimes we reach for old friends, and this dress counts as one of those; a wrap dress I bought during my last pregnancy.  Not meant for pregnant bellies but it doesn’t seem to mind and off I went, happy that something could wrap my evergrowing shape.
