Finding Balance



This is my sweet girl after a long day away from me! Every day it is just my favorite to come home & see her! While I didn't need absence to make me grow fonder of her, it's definitely made those moments we get together that much sweeter! She's growing up so fast! Two weeks ago, she was trying to pull herself up a little, but couldn't move around or crawl at all. Now she can crawl backwards & can get herself where she wants to go in this funny sit, bend & scoot kind of way. I'll have to get a video of that because it's hilarious!

I thought I would feel more like I was missing out on a lot, but surprisingly it doesn't feel like that! I know she is loving her babysitter & I'm enjoying student teaching! I get plenty of time with her & I love the weekends just me & her & Lewis! In my class, I helped a few kids one-on-one with math the other day & then today they were doing their homework & they really got it! Their work & their answers were perfect & I didn't have to help them at all! Seeing the light come on like that is so rewarding & I can't wait for this to be my job!

I think working moms learn to find a balance & I feel like I'm getting there! I've been reading everything in my Google Reader, so maybe Friday I'll have some links to share for weekend reading!!

Thanks for this insight Cameron! It seems like sometimes I feel guilty for "enjoying work" and not wanting to quit when Andy and I have kids some day. It's good to know that a mom can work and feel like she's not missing out on everything. :)

Aw nice post! I'm glad you're right where you're supposed to be - isn't it a great feeling??

No related - are you receiving my feeds in your "blogs I'm following" page? I'm having problems with my feed, so I'm wondering what people can see.

She is SO cute! So glad to hear your student teaching is going so well. It's nice to be passionate about something, like teaching is for you, and be able to do it! Your students and your family are super lucky :)

so glad it's going well! one of the things this world needs more is good teachers who care about their job and their students. yay for adding another one to our ranks. and what do you mean "when it's your job"? it IS your job... student or not, salary or not. :) well done mama. and of course, adorable little video of isis!

hahahaha. love that video. I use to do that to sabrina when she was little too. never worked with the rest of the kids . . .

by the way, it's so weird, all i see is your background and the video. Not the post or the comments.

How adorable, what a cutie! I remember those days of coming home to my first sweet daughter after a days work. It was hard but at the same time so worth it to see her face when I would come home. They grow so fast you just want to freeze moments like this one I'm sure lol
