Slacko checks in ...

Ok, my bad. I have been MIA, but I have a good excuse ... truly. My year 12s had their final exam last Thursday, so we ( my beautiful students and I) have been preparing like crazy. Essay and essay after never-ending essay. We find out final results on December the 15th, so it's fingers crossed until then.

Secondly, I am just wrapping up hell month. AKA 6 weeks of toddler birthday parties. At least one party every weekend for the past 6 weeks, sometimes two - aaaaahhhhhhh. It ends on the 21st with my darling little girl's party, but tomorrow is her actual birthday. She turns three. Like any dutiful, modern-day, Generation X parent I have created a photo montage for her, and will share it with you (please keep comments suitably sucky, of course she is gorgeous, wonderful, the smartest kid out etc, etc).

I am currently drafting a poem for her. The poem focuses on the close bond that we have, and I hope for it to be a poem that she can look to forever and ever and then a little bit more. Meanwhile, I would like to remind you all about the poem I wrote for her many months ago. This poem describes the impact she was had on my life. She is a true gift and I am so happy to have been allowed into her life.

Lastly, I would like to thank Steph Damore for nominating me for a Kreativ Blogger award. I am so very glad that you like my musings, and hope to be back in action very soon, so that disappointment no longer abounds.
