Do you remember how I had a baby last June? Baby G is gorgeous and smiling and delightful. I spent all summer playing with her. Then school started again and I went back to teaching. Full time.
Your brain prepares for what you know you have to do. Right now I have to work so I've been mentally preparing to return to teaching even before I got pregnant. I teach every day and little baby G hangs out at home with her nanny.
Her nanny is Elise, my little sister. It is WONDERFUL to have family watch G. I know that Elise loves her and takes good care of her. She reads to her. She plays with her. Not only that, Elise cooks and cleans my house. Elise = pure gold. I wish I could afford to pay her a million dollars a year.
So far me continuing to teach has been an okay thing for my family. Leaving for work every day makes me a little sad but once I get to class and starts teaching I realize how much I love to teach. Having a job you love makes working outside of the home much easier. I do love my job. I think being a choir and German teacher is the best profession in the world. My students are adorable. I get better at teaching every year and I really really enjoy it.
So that is my story. School gets out June 1.
