Part of me feels good about the fact that she is starting to understand where I go each morning, because for the longest time I felt guilty (damn mom guilt) that I would just disapear & she didn’t know why. And then of course the other part of me wants to cry my entire drive to school. I strongly believe that being a mom is hard no matter what your situation, it’s obviously moments like these that for us working mamas, are the absolute hardest.
On the plus side, I really do love my job. This time of year is obviously always exciting but also a little difficult, most of my students are senior girls who I really do connect to, & since I teach Advanced Fashion, that I have had for two years in a row. I always give them a congrats letter & a “good luck” talk on the last day I see them. I’m not sure if it was Waverly’s new phrase that got me extra emotional during it this week, but in my ten years of teaching, I don’t think it was ever that hard. These kids really are the sweetest, they always ask about Waverly & genuinely care. Though there isn’t a day I don’t miss her, they really make leaving her so much easier. I truly feel fortunate & am thankful for them. 🙂
AND because I can’t leave off a few more fun pictures, Waverly Maye had the best time ever at the waterpark this weekend. She discovered that she could do the slide on her own & must have gone down about 50 times in a row, laughing equally as hard every single time. She is a true water baby with no fear at all, totally her father’s daughter!
