I survived my first week of school…barely! I can’t wait until our building is gutted and remodeled because then we’ll have air conditioning! If you follow me on instagram, you already saw this picture.
What a difference a year makes. This year I have 23 students, plus a stowaway 😉
Three weeks from today I’ll officially be on maternity leave, and I’m already behind. I forgot how much time practicing rules and procedures, and setting up notebooks and journals takes. So my 5 weeks worth of plans is more like 6. At least my sub will be happy 🙂
Before I doze off, (and then wake up 8 times with preggo insomnia), I have 2 exciting things to share:
1) another sneak peek at our maternity session is up on my photog’s facebook page (I’m DYING to see the rest!)
2) My second Preggie Pals post is up! Check it out!
Phew, I’ve had a whirlwind weekend. Saturday morning I attended the 3rd annual Breastfeeding walk in downtown Spokane. I didn’t see a distance anywhere, but assumed it would be a 5K. Or at least a mile….eh, not so much. It wound up being a walk from the big red wagon to the clock tour. If you’re not a Spokane native, that is roughly a quarter of a mile. Ha!
My sister-in-law Kimberly joined me, and we met up with Haily and her baby Liam. Hailey and I met via The Knot, way back in the day when we were planning our weddings. So even though it wasn’t the work out I thought I’d be getting, I was able to chat quite a bit about cloth diapering, daycare, breastfeeding, and pediatricians. Ahhh, I’m getting so close to learning “on the job,” rather than just speaking hypothetically about what I’ll do. Crazy.
Once I got home I decided I needed to put my workout clothes to good use and grabbed Rilo for a 2-mile walk around Audubon park. My favorite thing about walking? Pregnancy podcasts! I’ve been listening to the Pregtastic podcasts since I learned about them from Kath. Once they went on hiatus I was sad, but had quite the backlog to get caught up on. But lately the Pregtastic predesessor has taken over my iTunes: Preggie Pals.
Preggie Pals celebrates all things pregnancy and regularly hosts experts like lactation consultants, OBGYN’s, doulas, midwifes, and even Ina May Gaskin! My excitement for the podcast led to me becoming one of their featured bloggers! And today my first post, revolving around my past eating disorder and fears of gaining weight while pregnant, went live this morning! Check it out!
