Busy, busy, busy....

January has been a crazy month.   You would think that with all the snow and being stuck indoors I would have some more time but I think it is the opposite.  I am always trying to come up with things to to keep us "busy".  Well anyway here is a little of what I have been up to (*gasp*, I am talking about myself). 
I am watching a little girl that is a couple months younger than Jack and Bella 3 days a week.  She is a sweet little girl and it is nice for the kids to have someone to play with.  Her and Jack have really hit it off and I can see his excitement when her mom drops her off in the morning.
I also got a job as a "Parenting Specialist".  I have to laugh at the title because I am not an expert but I have read the books and can teach about what "should" be done.  Some of the classes I have been teaching are "Parenting Solutions" which offers basic tips and ideas when dealing with kids.  It was eye opening for me and I am glad that I have all that material to reference for myself.  I am also teaching "Parenting Your Infant" which right now has all teen moms.  It helps that I am fresh from the infant phase and so far this is my favorite class to teach.  Eventually I will also be teaching classes for parents on how to communicate and put their children first when going through a divorce... not as fun as the others, but I also really liked the ones that I have shadowed so far.
Then in my free time I am still making shirts and now I am crocheting hats as well.  I have been selling quite a bit lately and have about 8 orders that I am working on....  here is some of the stuff I have been selling

So anyway that is what I have been up to so if I don't update that much or if I don't call this is why.  I think of all you NJ folk quite often but by the time I think to call I am either in the shower, or on my way to class, or changing a diaper .... basically when it is most inconvenient.
