Life is Teaching Me Patience

I find myself not being very patient with waiting for things lately. For example, I'm not the most patient with waiting for Wednesday night. I get my second ultrasound to make sure Little Bean is growing and has a heartbeat. I don't want to wait, I don't want to be patient. But just like all of our journeys, patience paves the way for wonderful blessings and beautiful life experiences. 

I haven't been feeling a whole lot different lately. I'm still bloated even though I tend to drink about 70oz of water on average (each day). I feel like I spend my life in the bathroom. I've been getting sleepy every day like clockwork around 1pm. Weird....

And one of my students is so observant. He says to me, "Mrs. C, why are you always tired anymore during Math?" And then yesterday, just like every day for the past two weeks, I have to take a trip to "The Little Girl's Room." The one-on-one aide for one of my students is on lunch break and she spends it in my room. So she watches my few students while I run to the bathroom. So this same student mentioned above says to me yesterday, "Geez, Mrs. C, you're always tired and you always have to go to the bathroom? What is wrong with you lately!" Okay, this kid is barely 8 years old...is it that obvious that something is different? Then, he asks me if I have kids. Um....no, and I didn't want to add "not quite yet, but soon!" Instead, I said I have him and get to send him home at the end of the day. He got a good laugh out of that. But really? He's been in my classroom since September and now, he's asking me if I have kids? Weird! He's probably going to be the first kid to figure out my little secret...

I thought you would all love that story. Kids are funny.

  1. Awwww! That's a really sweet story about the little student! Children are amazing and they say they can tune into that 6th sense we supposedly all have (but tend to ignore).
