so i made it...and only a few tears were shed this morning. i got the major crying out of the way friday morning, i guess. i'm still feeling blue though. i picked her up about 4:15, she fell asleep, and didn't wake up until 5. we took a bath and ate one last time and she was asleep in bed by 7:00. that's only about and hour and a half of awake time with my baby girl. i'm having a hard time adjusting to it. i worry that she will forget who i am. and i'm a little jealous that others are getting all that time with her during the day. this sucks. am i crazy to think that she might forget me? please tell me i am.
school was good. i was so thrilled to see my kids. i had one say, "ms. leslie, i thought i lost you." isn't that precious?! another one gave me a kiss on the cheek! they made me feel so good to be back with them. i was also warmly welcomed by everyone in the building...other teachers giving me hugs telling me welcome back and asking how i was doing. it felt great. it reminded me of why i LOVE where i work so much. it really is so much like a little family.
all in all it was a successful day. i am tired. a different kind of tired. and i miss my little one. i might just watch her sleep tonite. :)
