I know you anxiously head to your computer each day to see what's new with the Mohr's and I've left you waiting. I wish it were just a lesson in delayed gratification but it's more on account of my schedule. As previously mentioned, I'm subbing at the school I worked at years ago. The good news is that I have confirmed that I don't want to go back to teaching yet!

I really have to hand it to the working moms. Truly, I don't know how they do it. While at dinner last night we were singing kid songs with E along with his cute little motions. We went through our standard few that are his favorites when Russ went into Patty-Cake and Eliot did all the motions right along with him. I've never seen him do that before. Russ mentioned that they've been working on it (while I'm at work.) Not that I need to be the one and only giver of new information/skills/cute stuff to my son, but this compounds my disdain for working. This also compounds my appreciation for my time in Guatemala and makes me more motivated than ever to get my business back to where it was at it's prime.

For those that have been curious about my subbing days, that could be a whole extra blog. "Secret Confessions of a Substitute Teacher" or "How to eat an unhealthy lunch in 15 minutes or less" might be options for the title. For the last several weeks, I've actually been in the same position each day working one-on-one with a severely autistic third grader. Hence, the lack of energy to blog. or clean. or eat well. or call anyone back. You get the picture. All leftover energy at the end of the day gets divided between Eliot and Arbonne.

Speaking of Eliot and Arbonne:

Arbonne's "Test Drive a Mercedes" Day! Can you imagine? =)

Play-doh fun! We'd put the "glasses" on him and he'd get really serious, then make them fall off and crack up and ask for more. Then we'd start all over again with the serious face, etc.

I love the picture of El with the glasses, his look *underneath* the glasses is priceless.....PLEASE kiss him for me, I can't tell you how much I miss him...and you my dear friend!

Cute mustache!!! I used to be an autism specialist, and being a sub for a kid with autism would not be fun. It is MUCH easier when you know each other (as it would be with any student, but more magnified if the child has autism.) Have a relaxing play-doh filled weekend.

I think you'd look good in a Mercedes!

Still enjoying your blog....and pics of Eliot. Going down to Antigua on Friday. Looking very forward to it! Hope the traffic isn't too bad going into Antigua...wishful thinking. Will definitely think of you guys when I'm there. What was that coffee shop that was your favorite?? And has Lee Anne met Melissa yet?? I'll have to ask her.

Love the mustache! I'm in charge of subs at BSHS... I guess there's no chance of you subbing for us! :)

Go Arbonne! Love the car pic!

Don't forget Russ when dividing that left over time from subbing. I'm sure you meant to say you divide your left over time from subbing to Eliot, Russ, and Arbonne.

Have good week.
