Big Girls...You are Beautiful!

14,306 words written this weekend. Yup, that's right. My progress reports are all drafted.

I can't emphasize enough what a huge undertaking these are, especially at a private school.

My timeline looked like this:
Last Sunday - 3 hours spent on one report that needed to be completed early
Over the course of last week: gathering assessment data, compiling notes, looking through portfolios, and beginning skills checklists
Friday - 3 hours of work after a full school day
Saturday-Monday: worked 5-6 hours per day, only stopping for lunch and pee breaks
Tomorrow: after dildocam in the morning, will edit and proofread all of them
Wednesday: trade reports with teaching partner, making any subsequent changes
Friday: get edits from Head of School

Then, we get to wait for emails and phone calls from parents, questioning each and every statement we wrote about their children. Oy.

To celebrate my victory over my progress reports, I played some Just Dance 2 (which I am starting to prefer to Just Dance 3...yup) on our Wii. Because this is the only exercise I can seem to force myself to do these days, I look pretty spastic trying to break a sweat. But, man is it fun. Somehow I forget while I'm playing about my muffin top and jiggly thighs, for a little while.

For this reason, one of the songs on the soundtrack by Mika gives me a total ego boost, being a big girl myself.

Enjoy this tribute to all us girls with a booty!


  1. Congrats on finishing! As a fellow teacher I can totally relate to those. I hope you don't get too many phone calls from parents!

  2. Woohoo! That's HUGE! Congratulations on finishing all those progress reports! It sucks that you'll be fielding questions from parents. I get that they're paying, but it still amazes me that they assume that paying = automatic "As." Oh well.

    Thanks for the song!

  3. Wow that's a rather large accomplishment. Love the vid at the bottom. Makes me feel better about how chubby I feel with the injections.

  4. This is my favorite dance on 2!!!! I can't wait to jiggle my muffin top with you :)

  5. Congrats on finishing your reports!!!


Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!
