Double Digits

My oldest daughter turned 10 today - double digits!  Eeek!  I'm not sure why it's so scary for me - I teach this age level ... OK - maybe that's why it's scary.  I know what my students know, and I hear what my students say (especially when they don't want me to) ... and I'm having a hard time coming to the realization that my little girl is now that age.

Elizabeth is such a mommy's girl (even though she's the spitting image of her dad), and LOVES everything I LOVE.  So I gave her a little of that love tonight with two of her gifts:  an Erin Condren writing journal and a custom print from Melonheadz (is it wrong that I want one of these for myself?).  Watch out - I think we have a future teacher in our midst.


And because I'm still in the giving mood, I wanted to share that mood with you.  Elizabeth was the inspiration behind one of my resources in my TPT store.  I got the idea watching her one day, and ran with it.  Can you guess which resource?  Leave a comment with your email address below, and I'll send a copy to the first 10 people who guess right (10 because she's 10).  Need a hint???  It's on the first page of my TPT store. Happy Guessing!!!

Update:  And that's 10 - it was the comprehension cootie catchers - she came home with a cootie catcher one day and I thought ... there has to be a way to use these "for good" in the classroom.  ;)  I'll send them out shortly.  Thanks for playing my little party game!  :)
