I was remarking to The Feminist Breeder yesterday that with all the certifications I'm already doing and all the ones I want to do in the future (not too distant, please), it's starting to feel a little like collecting Girl Scout Badges. (How I would love it if some crafty WAHM on etsy came up with placenta encapsulation badges, lactation educator badges, birth doula badges, and a sassy sash to boot!)
So, as I'm focusing on trying to blast through my Childbirth Education certification through CAPPA's distance program, you may have noticed a, shall we say, sluggishness to my posting of late. I have at least a dozen topics I'd like to get to, and absolutely plan on completing them in the future, but developing a solid curriculum and (gulp) lesson plans for each of my 7 (or 8) classes is taking up pretty close to all my available time at the moment. I'd like to be finished by August, so hopefully we'll resume a more normal operating schedule by then. I'll still be posting, just more leisurely-ly, as you've seen of late.
Off to ponder what kind of a catchy name I can give my class . . .
Side note: I went to catalog all my birth and breastfeeding and baby books, in order to give my students a list of my lending library. Turns out I have SEVENTY TITLES on my shelves! Whoa. And the crazy thing? . . . I need even more. Someone may have to stage an intervention.
