I was touched by your comments! It is great to hear from another mom who has found my online materials to be helpful as you transitioned into your role as a new mom. I'm sure you are so busy now with your young twins, and I am so glad that this blog and my website have helped make your job easier. I am always so appreciative of other teachers who share with me too. I have certainly used many resources created by my peers to make by job easier since having my own kids!
I love the suggestions you offered about balancing motherhood and teaching. Having a structured routine where you have certain tasks you do each day sounds like a great plan. I think it sounds like something that I could do next year to save myself some time and be more efficient. I also totally agree that teaching my students to be organized and responsible for keeping our classroom clean saves me time (and reduces my stress level) as well.
