Working Mom: Part 1 (week one)

Friday, August 23, 2013

Overwhelmed.

That pretty much sums it up.  This week was packed with meetings and trainings and unpacking boxes and setting up my classroom.  Being back at school after a year off, new curriculum, new classroom, new building, new routines, it's a lot of new.   I'm trying to maintain my sanity.  In past years I would stay for hours after school and arrive super early to prepare.  But not this year.  I have this other priority.

And I rush out to get to him everyday and don't want to leave him one minute longer than I need to.

The week started off ok.  Monday and Tuesday were fine, but then by Wednesday night I felt sad to have missed him for 3 days in a row.

I know it will take time to adjust and we'll get used to our routine.  He's doing great, really.  Even though his whole world has been turned upside-down.

As far as weaning, on Wednesday we left the house without any sort of request demand to nurse.  I couldn't believe it.  But with all the major changes going on, I didn't push it on Thursday or Friday.  It will happen when we're ready.   

Now we prepare for next week, when not only will I have 1 little face looking up at me, needing my attention, there will be 22 others.   And it will all work out.
