Super Mom at Heart

Ok, so I am neglecting my blog a little this month. I have a LOT going on!

The most important things are two little boys added to my household around Easter. They are amazing little men of God, but they are also 3 and 5 years old.

The boys I have taken in have a very loving mother who just needs a little extra support to get things moving in the right direction for their future.

I presented her with an opportunity to go back to school and make a life for herself and her children that God would want for them, and one that she would be proud to live.

So, while I am at work my oldest daughter, who is a stay at home mother of a one year old, also cares for the 3-year-old and the 5-year-old. She is quickly learning that she only wants one child. Lol.

I am still working on getting things in line to register the 5-year-old for Kindergarten. He is so excited. He is very much looking forward to going to school in August.

I have also lined up a summer full of events for us all. The zoo, museum’s, a possible trip to the beach in Galveston for a day, a trip to Oklahoma next month to see family and a cool aquarium, a day trip to the Dinosaur park in Glenrose, and much more.

In addition to the boys and the fun-filled summer, I am hoping to teach 16 hours a week in our Extended School Year program for special needs students.

I had 4 students last summer that I thoroughly enjoyed and the job paid for my husband and I to take an anniversary trip to Las Vegas and Laughlin, NV for 5 days.

I have been asked to co-author a book with a friend of mine who is graduating from college this month and am really looking forward to diving in to that project.

Another friend has a daughter who just made the drill team at the school where I currently teach, and has asked for my input and support on fundraising since she and I were instrumental in raising funds when our older daughters were on another drill team together a few years ago.

I really want to work on another degree, but first I need to finish requirements towards sitting for the test to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (“BCBA“).

I completed the academic portion in December after 4 semesters of course work in Applied Behavior Analysis. I am now lacking the supervised hours of actually using my knowledge.

So, I am looking for a teaching position in behavior support where I will be supervised by a BCBA who is willing to sign off on my hours after a full school year. Believe it or not, this part is much harder that I ever expected it to be.

I really don’t want to change school districts because of insurance, and I need to work in a Title One school so that my TEACH grant doesn’t become a loan.

Throw 5 kids, 2 grand babies, a husband and my parents into the mix and I stay busy, but I love every minute of it.

I just want to be able to do it ALL, and do it well. Is that too much to ask?
