I have asked for a horse for every birthday and Christmas for almost 40 years. I recently started riding again because my 2 year old fell in love with horses and had the confidence to start riding. I'd love to be able to let my TPT funds help both of us live a dream once I go back into the classroom.
I believe that what happens outside of the classroom is just as important as what happens in the classroom. I want my children to explore interests and I love that Teachers Pay Teachers allows for me to be a stay-at-home mom and pay for them to ride horses, take gymnastics, and learn music. I love that I can pay for these things and it not put any further burden on my husband being the main income. I've been able to pay for babysitting and small vacations, and my dog's trips to the groomer.
Having two babies 17 months apart has meant that I spent a lot of my time in yoga pants. Yoga pants are wonderful for playing on the floors, being covered in drool and spit up and the hours spent potty training. As much as I love my yoga pants I am ready to either A. get better yoga pants or B. venture to buying clothes that will withstand the minor hurricanes that toddlers bring. I want to be able to buy something every now and then that reminds me that I am me and not just a stay-at-home mom.
