Maternity Leave Advice Giveaway!

Hey guys!  Happy Monday!  Normally I would be doing a Monday Made it but I have been so busy with this annoying Stats class, I did not have time to get all my made-its together!

Anyway, I am going to keep this short today!  For those of you who do not know, I have a daughter who just turned 13 (OMG I still cannot believe that!).  Isn't she adorable?

So yes, this was our life.  Then I (obviously) got married ...just this past April and SURPRISE!  Baby #2 coming in January!

I never thought I would have another child and especially 13 years later but it's happening and we are super excited!

I am also really nervous!

When I had my daughter, I was not a teacher yet.  I am really a control freak in my classroom... like to the point where I hate to even be out for one day!  So, now that I will have to take maternity leave and be out for a couple months, I am getting really freaked out!  
I also use Whole Brain Teaching (if you didn't already know) so I am scared about that too!  If I get my kids where I want them but then they go 2 months or more without WBT, I am not sure what will happen!  So far, I do not know of any good long-term subs who would be willing to learn about WBT.

I have been the only one doing WBT in my area for 2 years but trying to spread the word!  We finally had a conference here in July and we had a good turn out!  However, none of the people that came were subs :)

Besides the WBT thing, I also need to know how else to prepare?!  I am trying to get my monthly curriculum in order and found this awesome FREEBIE from First Grade Made so I plan to have that ready! (Even though I don't even have September done yet!)

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!  You can leave a comment below & then enter the Rafflecopter for a $10 TpT Store Credit to my store Fab in First!

One more thing!

My city always runs the "Best of" competition every year.  Last year I came in 2nd place for teachers!  I would love to place again this year!
