First, I wanted to thank those of you who sent me fb messages, texts, and emails to help me get through the day. It was REALLY appreciated!!
As you can see, I made it through the day. I had to wake up at 4:45 am to make sure I could get myself ready, make my coffee, and feed the baby and put her back to sleep before I left for school at 6:15. But, I did it and I got to school on time (early actually!).
I did cry a little this morning while I fed my baby, and then a little more in the car, but I was able to keep my composure all day. It was very strange being back at work. I felt like I was in a fog. The last time I was at school I was waiting for my baby to arrive and now I’m a full time mom!!
I have to say that I originally never considered myself the type to stay at home with my child. But, the last 14 weeks with my daughter seemed so natural that it almost felt like I had never been anything but a mom. I felt a little out of place at school today. Fortunately for me, I have the best job you can have and be a full time mom. Jamie and I will always have entire summer’s together and once she starts school she won’t be able to tell the difference that I’m also a full time working mom.
Jamie also has the care of her daddy while I’m at work and that’s a special time for her and Matt. I know they will both cherish this time forever.
With all that said, let it be known that I will be counting down the minutes until summer starts so I can be with my baby full time again. But, what else knew- didn’t I already do that?
PS- my students were very sweet and loving today. Except 6th period. They still drive me crazy. Some things never change. 🙂
PPS- Matt did an awesome job with Jamie today! He fed her, changed her diaper, and even put the clothes on her that I had put aside for her. His only mishap was that he put her shirt on backwards. LOL! At least her arms weren’t pinned back or anything- no harm, no foul! Matt still gets his man points for the day. Cha–ching!
