Snow Day: Take 3

I went back to work today, but yesterday...
Yesterday was a day for play!
Going back to work today after having three snow days was rough.  I really enjoyed my time at home with Lydia Grace.  Sometimes I feel so guilty that I have to work.  She is at an age where she doesn't really understand where mommy goes all day.  It will be nice when I can explain to her and have her understand.  I know that a lot of mommies have to work, but I still can't help feeling guilty when I leave her.  There are so many moments I miss during the day.  There are so many smiles, new words, milestones, and beautiful moments that I will never be able to witness.  Don't get me wrong...I'm passionate about teaching, and I love my 4th graders, but my heart still breaks when I have to say goodbye to L.G. each day.  Before Lydia Grace "graced" me with her presence, I never knew that leaving your child to go to work could be this hard...

  1. I don't have kids quite yet, but wonder how I will feel about leaving them to go back to work also. At least at teachers, we get the benefit of many days off, so hopefully that eases the guilt a little. (Please tell me it does, ha!) :-)


Each and every one of your comments means so much to me. I love to hear from friends both old and new. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the world and thanks for taking the time to let me know you were here.
