And I Think That It's Enough . . . For NowHello friends! I have my degree in teaching - BA in Elementary Education certified to teach grades K-8. Unfortunately, I graduated in December of 2008 and there is not an abundance of teaching careers open near me right now. We are super poor - like less than 25K last year was our income and we are a family of 4. Therefore, everybody (my husband, my parents, his parents, my grandparents, my aunt, etc.) feels that I should be working somehow to support this family. I have tried to get a job - both in the teaching field as well as out. Nobody has hired me, and frankly - I'm kinda glad. My oldest son just turned 8 and is in 2nd grade. He was also born with a cleft lip and palate and was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrom last year. He is a wonderful, brilliant child, with some special needs. My youngest son is 4 and a half. Next year he (my baby) will start Kindergarten and we will begin a whole new chapter of our lives!
For now though, these are just some of the things I do on a regular basis: clip coupons, plan meals, grocery shop, prepare meals, wash dishes, do laundry for everyone in the household, plan - doctors, dentists, and other necessary appointments; you get the picture, right?! I also read to my kids every night at bedtime, try to sit down as a family for dinner at the table every night, stop what I'm doing to play with them, and I certainly tell them at least once everyday, that I love them!
A lot of people in my life think that I don't do a whole lot. But I think that I do enough, for now. Anyways, I'm doing the best that I can, what more can you expect?
Thank you for reading my story ♥
