Having the opportunity to tell some stories from my teaching days and giving some tips to teachers to try to make their days more enjoyable with their children is the best way to spend a Monday ever!

Boy, that’s a long sentence!

Earlier I mentioned I can make cereal - well, I found this earlier this week and thought I has stumbled into heaven.  It’s like pop rocks… for BREAKFAST!  Best. Thing. Ever.

So happy to be returning to the Ventress Memorial Library today at 1:00pm.  I hope to see familiar faces and new ones as well!  Make sure you come up to me at the end of the show and say Tucker’s famous phrase “What’s that?  What’s it do?” and you will get an extra surprise!

As a first time parent that is experiencing April vacation for the first time I am curious on what to expect.  My daughter enjoys school so much I have a feeling she is going to ask me if it’s time to go back to school about a hundred times.  I will have to disappoint her a hundred times by telling her, “No, you get to spend another day with me!”

This week continues to keep me moving with teacher trainings and library shows!  Make sure to check the schedule so you can make it to one… or ALL!  If anyone is crazy enough to meet me at every show I will promise a new show each time!

By the way, thank you to all who came out for the Week of the Young Child Fair!  Those of you who approached me and told me that you were there just to see me - well, that made my whole day, so thank you!

I can cook like a little 8 year old chef.  I make hotdogs like nobody’s business!  Spaghetti?  Yup, I can make a sweet bowl of pasta for you!  That’s about it… no wait!  Cereal!  That’s cooking because you’re mixing two ingredients together!

this week

Just as I thought - last week lived up to all expectations!  I was so happy to see old friends and catch up with all of the people I see annually who is part of the Bridgewater Schools.  I can’t tell you how nice it was to not only see everyone but also to notice how happy everyone was.  Not sure if you out there heard but the George Mitchell school suffered a roof collapse with all the snow piling on it’s roof this winter.  Everyone I talked to said how impressed they were on how the superintendent handled the transition to the middle school.  It was like clockwork - and made as easy as possible.

As for me, I am beginning another super busy week full of shows!  I even see some spring weather ahead for the week so I am all that more excited to be out and about!

    this week

    While I enjoy the lazy days with my son - there aren’t too many - my week is filled with shows, workshops and trainings!  My teacher trainings are especially fun because it’s a time that I get to really talk with the teachers and re-live the great days of when I had my own classroom.  I was just at a school recently of a teacher who had taken my training - she told me that it was the best and most useful training she’d ever been to.  She said “rarely do you go to a training and use what you learned the very next day.”  It was so fantastic to hear!

    Final Preschool Building Stories in Kingston is happening this week!  Come on out and check out Wordless Picture Books with me. I have been told that the workshop is chockful of fantastic ideas and at the same time is a blast to attend!

    This is hands down my sister’s favorite cartoon.  I created it so of course I think it’s funny - but she thinks this is REALLY funny!
