I had a GREAT reason to take a break from blogging! Lydia was born right after Thanksgiving. I have enjoyed three months off of teaching kindergarten but all good things must come to an end.. I am going back to work Friday, March 2nd. During my maternity leave I ignored all of the teacher blogs I follow- the only school related "stuff" I did was read my school email. I have just spent the last hour digging up ideas for Dr. Seuss to use on Friday. Part of me is excited to go back to teaching to see my friends and see how my kindy kids have changed. Most of me is absolutely dreading it. I have yet to successfully get Lydia to take a bottle and I will have to drag the pump with me and spend my lunch and planning time holed up in the bathroom. Not to mention that I am going to miss my little meatloaf BIG TIME! The pressure is on with a new evaluation system and I am just not feeling up to it all.. I have 2 more days to squeeze every moment of being home and then it is back to work. I have 18 kids waiting for me!
