Snapchat Story: Mean mom!

Steven called me “mean” for the first time, and also tried to deliberately hurt my feelings for the first time. #milestone

Below is a semi-condensed version of how things went down last night.

Sad to say, Steven had another attitude-filled moment later that night. And although we had things resolved by bedtime, I think he needed a little more comfort than usual because he (and Ben!) snuck into our bed in the middle of the night.

He’ll always be my baby.

The Lonely Cushion: A Snapchat Story

After posting my Snapchat story of “Why I am tired,” I dug up an older Snapchat story that I posted last year.

The story behind this is that I was driving one of my high school students back to her house. Along a country road, we suddenly saw a random cushion laying in the middle of the road, and we both burst out laughing at the same time. On my way back, I had a thread of an idea for a story so I may have taken some pictures while driving (before the hands-free law went into effect).

The beginning part of my Snapchat story is heavily inspired by Little Beaver and the Echo, which is a beautifully illustrated book about a lonely beaver who goes out to find a friend.

Without further ado… for public consumption for the first time is the story of The Lonely Cushion. All photos, text, and Snapchat scribbles are by me.
