Monday morning chaos! 🤪
While it’s hard to admit - there was a time in my life when I used to DREAD the start of a new week. Literally loathed every second!!
I’d roll out of bed with 5 minutes to spare and simply go through the motions.
Fast forward to learning the importance of self care combined with the innocence and fun of kiddos...And it’s amazing how your mindset/perspective can change and make the grind 1000 times better. ♥️
Make it a great week, all!

Besties for the resties and a big ol’ smoochalooch 💗
Some days are hard, I struggle. I wonder if I am, in fact, what they need in life or if I am strong enough to give them what they need. These three, they deserve the world. These three, they are my world.
When I see them holding hands, loving each other and giggling without a care, I know, I’m doing something right. #donahoecircus#myworld#lovetheselittles#candidconfessions#blessedmama

Today was a wonderful day. A student melted down and struggled to keep his anger in check. But he also took himself to our calm down spot. Another student wrote a reflection using a better answer strategy for the FIRST TIME 🤯😍 and I overhead a student teaching their parent about Glyphs and how much information you can learn from one little beetle! I'm stressed all the time, I don't really sleep that well, and my face has never broken out like this before. I've also never felt so fortunate to have these tiny human beans in the classroom. I can't tell if I'm crying from exhaustion or from such a full heart... I'm not sure it really matters though. #teacherlife#stressbreakout#lovetheselittles#selfcare#iteachsecond#thehardestjobyoulleverlove#elementaryteacher#firstyearteacher#worthitall
We took a chance on the forecast and headed to the zoo this morning! 👊🏼 It was a ghost town (seriously we only saw two other families the whole time we were there!), and it sprinkled for about 10 minutes, but it was so. much. fun! 💃 The animals were out and active and came right up to the glass because we were probably the only people they saw all day. 👊🏼 We marched around like we owned the place and decided that rainy days made for the best zoo days. 😍 #lovetheselittles#adventureday ! #coffeeforthebaby#jk#definitelyforme#raberfall2018
