Today’s Random Snappy: My Crazy Joe

Don’t be fooled by this innocent face, I tell ya!!!

I do love this crazy, kooky little boy of mine but unlike his older brother, it has been very difficult to train him. He still isn’t completely housebroken (okay, okay, I will admit, he barely is!!!). He loves chewing on everything…my shoes, my clothes, the furniture, and even the Table top displays in our living room. Oh noes. I buy him chew toys, mind you, but he doesn’t like them. But like I said, despite the difficulty I am having training him, I love him to bits :) He makes me smile :)

Something to Look Forward To!

Yesterday I was just saying that I miss being a preschool teacher…

Today I saw a post on Facebook from a friend of mine asking if anyone had an early childhood education background and I so I said I did and asked why…maybe this is the project I was praying for :) Let’s see :)

Then I checked my email and I was reminded of an invitation I received from a local foundation to be their plenary speaker for a preschool teacher training this coming October. It dawned on me that’s just about a month away :) Apparently I still have my toes in the preschool waters, so to speak! That realization suddenly brought so much lightness in my heart and I was reminded that I may have changed classrooms, but yes, Teacher Ria is still in there somewhere :)

Today’s Random Snappy: It’s Missing!!!

I was cleaning my room today and for some reason, I had this urge to take a random snapshot of this giant bar of natural/organic mango-melon soap I had received some time ago. So I got my camera ready and headed off to the closet where I knew it was kept and surprise, surprise….it wasn’t there anymore!!!

Anyway, I found a photo of it from my friend’s Facebook page and so here it is:

Talk about a big bar of soap right? This was a prize courtesy of Body Flavors, a local organic soap company in the Philippines. I never got to use this bar of soap (haha!) mainly because I was too lazy to cut it up and then I forgot all about it :( I did try their other variants though, such as the one with tea tree oil and it was nice :) I don’t know what other kinds they make since I never really had a chance to go and get some and whether or not they carry those african black soaps I’ve heard about.

Anyway, like I said, today this giant bar of soap came to mind and I really wish I can figure out what I did to it!!! Hehe. I can’t have misplaced something this huge, right????

Teacher, Teacher…

These past few weeks have been, to say the least, quite rough and rocky. It’s hard being all grown up after all. Haha. Seriously though, last week a friend and I were talking and I said that since I gave up the preschool, I suddenly feel like I’m a million years older. Yes, I kinda feel like since March, it’s been a million years and so I feel tired and all worn out.

Maybe I need to figure out how to work with kids again, yes? There’s really something magical that happens around them. I guess it’s their wide-eyed innocence. Or perhaps their ability to just be. And I guess it’s also because with them, what you see is what you get, no complications and whatnot.

I do know, however, I cannot go back to the preschool classroom. I feel to old for the routine of it all. Perhaps I should explore projects that allow me to work with kids instead…hmmmm….let’s see where this takes me.

The Downside to Hi-Tech Classrooms

Today technology failed me terribly….hehe. I love how my classrooms have become all hi-tech and stuff but on occasion, things happen and my classes get derailed. Today for example, the LCD projector wouldn’t work and the speakers connection was broken so I had to run all the way down to the library to get another projector and the portable speakers. I ended up wasting a good chunk of the class period. Sigh. That definitely is the downside to my hi-tech classroom :(
