You Know You're a Teacher When...

....you get excited about a trip to the Target Dollar Spot!!!!  Which was a total let down today.  What was I thinking? It was completely picked over.  But I did find a few things for my boys' teachers.  I love giving little "sparkles" here and there to the loves of their lives...yeah, their teachers are goddesses in their little worlds. Mom - I know nothing.  So many times I've said to my boys "I'm a teacher too...I know what I'm talking about...Mrs. _________ isn't the only one who knows how to __________!!!!!!"

But boy do I appreciate all of their hard work and consider my boys to be mighty lucky that they are in their lives and just like I know when one of my first graders accidentally calls me "Mom" it's because they are so comfortable with me {LOVE THAT} I know the same can be said for when my boys call me "Mrs. _________".  {LOVE THAT TOO!}

I've loved reading your "You Know You're a Teacher When"...

Here are some of mine {I could have kept going}...






Not that this has happened to me before, but have you ever been pulled over...for, say...exceeding the speed limit just a wee bit and as the police officer sauntered over you casually swung your teacher ID badge over {or yanked it out from under your winter parka} so he might, ummm, might just see it and for some reason find his soft side and let you off with a warning? I'm not saying that this has ever happened to me....it's all heresay and speculation - but, if you ever were to, say, find yourself in a wee bit of a traffic predicament it may be worth a try. I'll have to remember that one.

Happy Sunday!!!!

  2. HAHA :) I'm not saying that this happened, but it is possible that I may have been pulled over on Halloween (for going a lil too fast, 27 in a 25 is not that fast :) while wearing my Cookie Monster costume from the school parade that day! Talk about embarassing! P.S. My pencil sharpener will be here Monday and I'm sure it will give me goosebumps! I'm so excited! Have a FAB rest of your day :)

  5. I love the Target Dollar Spot! I hope they get some Dr. Seuss stuff in soon! Ours is completely picked over too! Guess what??? It might snow tonight, like really snow. Not the pretend snow that the weather people talk about. And we are under a winter weather advisory, maybe we will have a snow day!!! :) I just cracked open The Small Moments Unit we will be starting this week and I was just smiling because you were so kind to send them to me! I will be sending you something this weekend, because I got your address off the box! Hehe ;)

  6. ok, i might have to disagree with that last one....on the poin of going into a store...lol. I did that for our Polar Express day...I had to go into Chick Fil A to get breakfast since the drive through line was so backed up (it was a gift for my team!)...I thought...no one will be in there, it's 6:30!! WRONG!! The most beautiful mom of this like middle schooler was in there ...all dressed up and looking pretty...I just turned and looked at her and said "I'm a teacher...it's pajama day..lol" wow - did I feel like trash (if you knew our town, you'd get that....lol

    1. Awesome idea, I'll treat - 7 people + 1 dollar spot item = 7 bucks and some change...I know, I know - it's mighty generous of me - but that's the kinda person I am! :)

      CANNOT WAIT!!!!!
