Tate and I both survived our first day away from each other. Tate knew something was up this morning when I got her ready and out the door way earlier than her normal. She happily went to Lindsay but turned and wanted me back. I told Lindsay I did not know what to do. Her good advice, "Hug her and leave".... So I did.
Tate did as well as expected. Cried for 10 minutes before her first nap, wanted to feed herself (she prefers me to feed her) but LOVED having the other kids to watch and learn from. I swear she seems older after eight hours!
ME??? I could not stop thinking of her. My arms craved her. Her sweet little smile just lite up when she saw me. My heart skipped a beat and then it BURST. I swear, I kissed her so many times her cheeks are now chapped.... Dang it if she is napping now .... I'm hoping this will be a quick nap!
Job??? I will be teaching special education part-time in an elementary school. Exciting and scary change, but such an amazing job when you are a single momma.
