the1stdaughter This sweet girl and her equally sweet teacher. Littlebug and her brother love this spectacular teacher who goes above and beyond despite all the odds against her. This is one of the huge reasons why I'll do whatever it takes to make a change for the better. So much love for them!! #teachers #supportourteachers #supportourkiddos 3w

the1stdaughter It's four o'clock and I'm already in need of this bowl of rocky road. This week it was Littlebug's "turn" to be on the receiving end of another student's fist and I've had it. The superintendent is now involved and this may get into a bigger legal battle, but at least for now my sweet little girl is healthy and happy at home. #bulliessuck #bullying #icecream #lovemykiddos 3w
