You may remember that not so long ago, I was working as a part-time class teacher in a local primary school. I wrote a post previously all about the reasons why I left that job after just six months (read it here if you fancy). For the last few months I’ve been desperately trying to decide what to do workwise once the twiglets start school in September. I’ve finally decided to have a go at supply teaching rather than another class teacher role, so I just thought I’d share my reasons for this decision 😊 Just in case anyone’s interested 😜
Quite a while ago I wrote a post about how I was feeling about my mum tum. It was about how, at that time, I wasn’t hugely bothered about my big post-pregnancy jelly belly. I wouldn’t say I was feeling super body positive or anything, but certainly not unhappy enough to do anything about it. But while on holiday last week, I realised that something had changed. But is it ok if you’re not body positive?
I’m currently sat in Costa with a coconut latte and a toastie, enjoying a rare couple of hours of peace and quiet. It’s half term and the twiglets are at a Playball camp for the morning. I’m trying to relax and appreciate the time to myself but I can’t help but think about the fraught, stressful few hours we had before we left the house earlier. Destructive behaviour in toddlers can be so difficult to deal with!!
This post is probably going to be a bit of a ramble so please bear with me! So it’s about me leaving my teaching job! 😱 I actually resigned back in November but couldn’t really say anything until now as the children I teach (and their parents) didn’t know. I have pretty mixed feelings about it to be honest. On one hand, I feel hugely relieved as I wasn’t happy, but on the other, I feel a bit of a failure and like I’ve given up. Throw in a huge amount of anxiety about the future and what I’m going to do with myself, and my head’s a bit all over the place at the moment!
I thought I’d share some funny parenting milestones I’ve experienced. Funny because they’re probably not the moments you might expect – baby’s first smile, baby learning to walk etc. Not those ones. These are probably a little more… silly. But sometimes it’s the silly little things that can make a significant difference to your life and how you feel about this crazy rollercoaster called parenting 🤪
