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!!
