Subbing and Oral Fixations

Hey all I haven't been around this week really, been busy. So, not that any of you care, but we FINALLY got internet and a home phone here - we were stealing internet from the neighbors and it hardly ever worked properly. It took me forever to upload pics, download songs, and do pretty much anything. So, now we're like a normal household! WOW!

Oh, and guess what?! I am so happy, I am going to substitute teach for Albuquerque Public Schools! I applied in hopes I would get the job, but didn't really have my heart set on it because APS is a HUGE district, and there are a LOT of teachers, so it would have been easy for me to fall through the cracks. However, something must have caught their eye because I'm going in for orientation next week! It's a great gig because I can do do it part time - but now I am looking for day care for L. There's always this issue of how expensive it is and if it's worth it...but I am going to see a place this morning where the girl gave me a reasonable price and she sounded nice. So we'll go check it all out and see if it's doable. After numerous calculations I have concluded that I will indeed be making money and not putting ourselves in the hole (like I hear what happens to many moms who go back to work...) So that's good right? Maybe some money to actually DO stuff with, and buy myself some new jeans considering I wear the same pair every day. Jeans with a hole in the crotch probably aren't acceptable dress code...

Alright, time to get on the wagon for the day. Logan is sitting in his infant chair watching me, with his fingers/hands/fists shoved down his throat. I swear to god, this kid maybe goes 5 minutes a day with his hands out of his mouth. The rest of the time it's this weird and ridiculous oral fixation. He basically doesn't use the binkie any more. Any one else have experience with this? I guess it's normal, but it's still odd.

Have a great Thursday. Get decorating for Thanksgiving! I kind of skip all that and go straight to Christmas...what? I like it.


  1. That's great, Lisbet. I think you will enjoy getting out of the house. And it is good for little guy to bond with another caretaker, too. Little man will get his hands out of his mouth eventually. And you'll be glad he ditched the binky. Remember your brother's addiction?

  2. How could I forget? It was a sad day when he had to throw that thing away...

  3. bahaha...eric with a binky...that's a hilarious image!!

    congrats on the job prospect! Ryan (Jay's friend) quit accounting and has been subbing in Pittsfield and LOVES it! Even if you aren't making out ahead $$ wise it will be nice to get a break from the house and to meet some new people! good luck!

  4. oooh thank you! I'm super duper excited, and actually will make enough $$ for it to be alright. And yeah, I am so done with being in the house (or wherever I go to get AWAY from the house...) alone with baby. I love him, but I need adult talk.
