I have about 5 weeks left of maternity leave and I am so excited AND so sad to go back to school! My son was born in July and I took the first quarter off of school to stay home with him (he's our first)! We still aren't entirely sure of what to do for childcare when I go back... we are hoping that my DH is able to find a new job working nights. I just don't know how people can afford child care. Anyway... this is the 4th year at my school and I miss everyone terribly. Especially when school started and all the school supplies were in the stores- I love back to school time!! I've stopped in with the baby a few times to tide me over. Teaching was my "baby" for so long but now my priorities are changing. I can't imagine leaving my little one every day all week... he's the love of my life! I realize I am rambling like an idiot... but I just had to get it all out! I'm so blessed to have a job I love and a son I love even more!!
