Some things I've learned this week:
Lacrosse gear is expensive. I don't get it. Kid gear shouldn't be so expensive. They are tiny people. Thankfully he's borrowing a helmet from the league, because that alone ranges from $100-250+. Crazy. Hopefully he get gets some good use from the gear, or maybe I'll just have him wear it...every day.
Interviews never get less nerve racking. Not like I've had a ton of interviews, but I've had two in the past year and both times I've been so nervous I want to throw up. This time around I talked to a friend right before and she took my mind off of it. Then when I went to the school, I chatted up the secretary until the principal came out. The secretary and I are total BFFs. Luckily I only had to interview with the principal and the assistant principal and didn't have an office full of people asking me questions. The interview itself lasted an hour and a half! I ended the day with getting the job offer from the principal, and Tuesday morning I got the official job offer from the district!! I accepted and did a happy dance. I really lucked out, because school has been going on for over a month. I'm going to be working at an amazing school. Ah-mazing.
Just because something is more expensive doesn't mean it's better. I checked out daycares Tuesday with Emma and one is a hop and skip away from the school. It's also the most expensive, and the least impressive. Sad face. Total bummer, but I did see 2 really great ones. I'm excited for Emma to be around kiddos her age and get back into the classroom setting. One of the places even has a little cafeteria for the kids to eat snack and meals. I died over the cuteness. (We saw 2 not impressive daycares on Wednesday as well...)
NBC puts out some great shows. I loved Parenthood and was so sad when it ended. I watched This Is Us this morning on Hulu. Guys, it's so good. SO GOOD. I laughed, I cried, I had all the feels. I'm excited to see where this show goes. All the heart eye emojis. You need to watch it.
