When people ask me to describe myself, this is what comes to mind:
I’m a little crazy… but it’s the good kind 🙂
First of all, I love being an SLP. I earned my masters degree in 2007 , my C’s the following year, and I’ve been trucking ever since. I have always worked in the schools, which is right where I want to be. My current school is PK-5, but I’ve also worked in middle and high schools. PreK is definitely my fave. And now blogging seems pretty natural to me, as it has become another of my creative outlets. I love making stuff. I will try anything once. And I love to write…alas, Crazy Speech World was born. CSW was born on Blogger, but now I have grown up to my very own, big girl website. I hope to share much more of my life here. Sharing my ideas has become one of my favorite things to do…but I have other favorites…(dot, dot, dot being one of them)
My kid. He’s 13 and almost too cool for me, but I love his charm and sense of humor. He also happens to be a genius and completely gorgeous. I call him E…not so much because I’m protecting his identity, more because that’s what we call him in real life. E is gonna do big things in life with his heart of gold (and garnet). Unfortunately for my anxiety, his current passion is football, so I sweat profusely and say things I shouldn’t in my head during 100 degree August football practice…praying for him not to break when he’s buried at the bottom of a pile of stinky boys . BTW, boys are gross. They are messy and smell funny. No one told me that tidbit when they placed the precious baby boy in my arms. I’m also currently enjoying being taller than him since that is surely to change soon…
This man. He loves me, so he wins all the prizes. Fun fact: We’ve known each other since we were eleven years old. We didn’t realize we couldn’t live without each other until last year. It’s all very ooey, gooey, mushy. I love it.
But I’m sure if you poke around a bit, you will find some of those things here. I hope you stick around for a while!
