Juggling my life...linky party!

I'm linking up with Katie Mense from Little Warriors for tonight's blog post....all about juggling everything life throws at you!
I think you all know by now that I LOVE my job!  But I love my family even more!
I have 2 children that keep me very, very, VERY busy!
Here's one example...I wanted to take a recent picture of my 2 little ones (I swear, the last decent picture I had of them, without one screaming, the other crying or both pouting was from October).  To take this picture tonight took me about 10 minutes....and....4 pictures later, an ice cream cone with sprinkles each and a movie popped into the TV....voila (this is the best I could get!)...  My kids!
My daughter (Chiara) is 4.5 years old and my little guy (Luca) is 2.5 years old.  Having children so close in age (they are exactly 2 years and 2 weeks apart) is wonderful but ever so busy!
Life in my house is constantly on the go.
During my free time...okay, stop, it's not really free time....it's everyone else's sleeping time!...I work on my units for TpT and school.  But I can't imagine leaving that world!
I started blogging 2 years ago in April.  I was actually on my maternity leave at the time and discovered so many wonderful bloggers out there.  I knew I wanted in even though at that time I didn't have anything much to share since I didn't have my class!  Well, I jumped right on it and it's been addicting ever since.
I think the best part of being connected to the world of teacher-blogs is the amazing, wonderful friends I have made.  Some I have met this past summer and others I haven't met (yet!) but feel as though I've known them for years!
I don't really know how to juggle everything.  As I said, my world is a constant go!  But that's me, too.  I love my life and wouldn't change anything about it!  I just say that you should enjoy every minute with everyone you meet in life and cherish every day. 
And with that I am leaving to spend another half an hour before their bedtime with my screaming little ones downstairs!


  1. Chiara and Luca are utterly adorable, Alessia! Even if it took 10 minutes and an ice cream cone with sprinkles and a movie popped into the TV! LOL!

  2. I had to laugh....I haven't been able to get a decent picture of all three of my kids together in YEARS! Everyone giggles at our xmas cards each year because someone is always doing something they shouldn't be or making a face. =) My kids are now 16,14 and 12. I thought it was crazy busy when they were little....but we've only gotten busier! I've found being somewhat organized,taking breaks when possible and not sweating the small stuff has helped with all of our insane schedules over the years. I enjoyed reading your post...thanks for sharing!

I LOVE that you had to bribe them with ice cream cones with sprinkles on top to get this picture!!!!! I can soooo totally relate to that! LOL!!! My oldest two are 23 1/2 months apart-so, I can definitely relate to almost everything you posted!! LOL!! You seem like one happy and upbeat Momma!! I think that's the key! I hope we meet some day, my friend:)
