Back To Work

Oh you guys, it’s so nice to be working again, granted it’s only been two days but it’s been nice.

It’s nice to have a reason to take a shower in the morning. It’s nice to not wonder if I am providing  enough stimulation for K’s little brain.It’s nice to have some time away from Kaili and out of the house. It’s nice to not feel guilty for letting her watch cartoons since I know she will be busy learning and playing most of the day. It’s nice to not change diapers for a few hours. It’s nice to focus on something other than “what in the hell am I going to do today?” And it’s nice to be busy doing what I love.

Teaching is like second nature, what is interesting is doing it all again but this time with a 2 year old. This was my classroom back in 2007, before she was even a thought. Now she is painting in it, it’s surreal.

I was worried it would be hard for both Kaili and I to be away from each other but it’s not, it’s fine. She whimpers a bit when I say goodbye to her in the morning but that’s the extent of it. I was worried that when she saw me during the day, either walking by her classroom or outside that she would want to be with me, not the case so far.

I was worried that she wouldn’t nap and the teachers would have a hell of a time keeping her on her cot. This part is true. She hasn’t napped and isn’t showing any signs of doing so. They have to sit with her to keep her quiet but they say she is doing fine. One day it will take a toll on her and she will just crash…right? one day?

Luckily these non-nap days aren’t a cause for meltdown city in the afternoon, she seems to handle it pretty well. I got to say things went as well as I could have hoped for. We’ll see how it goes from here.
