You know you're a teacher when....

You haven't blogged in almost two months.
You celebrate the last day before school starts.

You still get your picture taken on the first day of school.

The first weeks of school are so exhausting that you miss the Push Cart Derby to clean house.

You gain 3 pounds from all the stress eating due to piles of paperwork and the daunting task of molding the future.
The basement nows houses Mt. Dirty (an enormous pile of laundry).
Your caffeine intake doubles triples.
You get your daughter's 2 year old pictures taken 2 months before she turns 3.
You start telling your children "OK, smart friends, it's time to ....."
You bemoan doing homework with your own child, but keep assigning it any way.
You start grading papers/making new things/answering emails/do your professional reading at 9:30PM, and surprised when it is already 11:00 PM.
Your school bag is NEVER empty.
School supplies make you smile.
You think you have the best job on earth.
