my favorite Monday

I decided to do a favorites today, but we will see if I do it every week. Keep you on your toes. My favorite thing lately is this: Sometimes I wear dangly earrings which makes me a little nervous around the baby, but when he is leaning on my shoulder he will gently put my earring in his mouth to check it out. He doesn't pull hard and I love to hear him breathing in my ear. An odd favorite, but I know it won't last.

Of course, to balance the favorite with the not so favorite, I just got back from picking Ella up at the high school. She was a little late coming out so I had the opportunity to observe some of the students as they left the school. The boys waddled by spitting as their pants slid way past what I consider appropriate and girls were throwing their gum down on the sidewalk. What are they all thinking? Sometimes I feel like I am still fourteen, but when I am wondering what their mothers would think if they saw them, I realize that I have become an old fuddy-duddy

I'm a fuddy-duddy too. I fully expected that on Sunday, since I am THE TEACHER that when I asked someone to stop texting, she would comply. Boy, am I old and uptight or what? I've spent the last 24 hours trying to stop being offended.

I guess you are just going to have to start texting the lessons. There really is no other alternative that I can see.

I love the baby nibbling on your earrings. And, it is strange, yet so endearing. I love that my 2 year old is still so cuddly. He is also so wild, but I my favorite thing about my not-so-baby, baby is that he will still lay on my shoulder for a decent amount of time.
And, the high school stuff, no way are you a fuddy- duddy that bugged me way back in the day, yes our day, my cherished high school friend! No one in our circle of sophisticated friends did that!
