“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World <3
Give each student colored index cards/post-its for their work space. During independent work time or group work, the students use the cards. A teacher I used to work with put red cards on popsicle sticks at the student work centers & prompted them to hold it up when they needed help, rather than calling out. Her classroom was always so quiet!
I believe in displaying family photos all over your home to help your children feel that they are growing up in a loving environment simply because they can actually SEE it all around them. In this post I also show you how easy it is to hang a wall gallery like this. #family #gallery #canvas #harvardhomemaker

Hey mom remember me having this poster in my room when I was a kid?
I like how she has them all on one screen! I got the songs from www.TVtunesonline... I have song clips linked to each one of the buttons, so when I or my class D.J. (one of our daily jobs) clicks on a button, the music plays automatically. This is completely routine now! During stations, my D.J. will signal clean up time with the "clean up chime" (aka NBC chime), wait 15 seconds and then click on "move to new locati...
Being a mom and having them be the center of my world is the best possible feeling ever!! Wouldn't give it up for anything!! Love that I have been able to stay home with my kids in the years they are young enough to still enjoy me spending time with them. <3

Great idea for Stamp Room Punch Storage. "I bought extendable curtain rods for $4 each at Lowe’s and I used a hack saw to cut them down to the size that I needed. I attached them down the side of my storage unit with the brackets and screws that came with the curtain rods. These were super easy to cut down and hang up, I did it all by myself!"
