I have been back to teaching for two days now - I think there are only about 52 days left til summer! The hardest part was leaving her for the first time. The night before when I did our little night time routine and put her to bed, I came out of the nursery just sobbing! I did not expect to feel quite so sad! I never thought I could love a little person so much! The next morning was a little tough too, but I was surprised how well it actually has gone at school. Fortunately, I was so busy during the day, that I did miss her as much during the "thick of the day". And I am getting to leave right at 3:30p.m. So I am getting home right around 4:30p.m.
As far as getting into teaching the kids again, I was nervous that I would feel like a sub and would have to really work to get the kids to fall back into line(and the way I like the line :) But they actually wowed me and jumped right back into things. We have enjoyed catching up on things together. But of course, I have had to show them right away that it cannot be all fun and games- I let them know pretty quickly that I mean business! So far, so good. I am so thankful to the Lord for the smooth transition! I am sure that there will definitely be days that I am ready to pull my hair out, but I hopefully, the thrill of Summer almost being here will outweigh those times! Thank you so much to all of those who have been thinking of me and praying for me in this transition. You are such a blessing!
Tim has been taking care of Maddy for us as he is home working on Church work and schoolwork.
He has been doing a fabulous job! I have loved seeing them together - so sweet! I am glad that they get this father daughter time together. He loves her as crazy much as I do - and he has enjoyed these special moments with her. I am so thankful for his love, care, and concern for our family. He is such a sweet husband.
As you can see - he has found his own way of doing things :) This is how I found them when I arrived home after work one day!
Oh and I almost forgot! I came into Maddy's crib the other day to pick her up - and she had ROLLED OVER!! She hasn't done it since, but I was so excited that she did it for the first time - I can't wait to actually see her do it at some point :) She is growing up soo fast!
