My son had some health issues and he was still nursing at the time of his first birthday. We definitely both needed to stay at home for a little while longer. He wasn't even close to sleeping through the night yet for one thing. No need to talk about the effects of sleep deprivation to any other parent reading this. His father and I like to refer to those two first years as "the dark times".

Boy, was I ever wrong about that.
Although becoming a mother changed my priorities, it also helped me realize how much I love my job. On the first day of school I always tell my students that we will be like a family for the next 10 months and that we really need to take care of each other. I am so happy to be off for the summer but I also can't wait to meet my new bunch of students in September!
Until then, I'm soaking up being a full time Mom again and having the best time with my almost Grade One cutie. #timeflies
