Slice of LIfe Challenge #1 2013

Oh my goodness! I’ve been so busy today I almost forgot today was March 1st and the very first day of the month long Slice of Life Writing Challenge. I have been waiting for this day for the entire month of February. It would be horrible if I missed the very first day!
For those of you that don’t know what the Slice of Life Writing Challenge is pop over to Ruth and Stacy’s site The Two Writing Teachers to learn all about it. It is a great exercise for your writing muscles and we all know how important writing is with the big ol CCS lurking around the corner.
Today I had baby shower for our sweet third grade teacher. She was my student teacher a few years ago, and since then has become part of my family. She is so sweet and cute, even more so since she’s preggers. I love listening to her talk about this pregnancy and baby.
I had the guests (ok teachers) write their words of wisdom for late night diaper changes a diaper and then hang them up. She had quite an array of advice by the time everyone arrived. Besides baby gifts I asked everyone to bring a favorite book to get this little guy started on his literacy life. He should have a great start with some of titles she received.  
I love baby showers. I can hardly wait to meet the baby!



  1. HI Tammy,
    Hey I'm with you, I almost missed today and I've been waiting as well to get going.
    Looks like a great shower that she must have loved

  2. What fun to share in the excitement of a new baby! The teachers at my school also each gave me a book at my baby shower -- my favorite gifts of all! And we are still reading them over and over and over again today.

    Happy writing -- and looking forward to another March together!

  3. What a creative way to give a new mom advice. I'm sure that she'll treasure each wise word as much as each special book. We are still enjoying the baby shower books received from my first child. The gift that keeps on giving. Sounds like the perfect baby shower.

  4. We were supposed to have a baby shower today, but the baby decided otherwise, & showed up Wednesday! Soon! Your shower sounds wonderful, so nice to do & such happiness too! Great to see you here, Tammy!
