First Day Back

Thursday, March 26, 2015
Today is my first day back to school since having my second little guy. Naturally, I've been getting a lot of "Are you ready?" comments. 

I think God kind of handles situations like this so we don't have to worry about them.  Two weeks ago I was in the carpool line (not my favorite place) and several of my first graders were waiting for their cars. This was the first time in six weeks of carpool that I had seen these particular kids. I went all super cheesy and started smiling and waving. What did they do? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. In that 5 seconds, I seriously thought they had forgotten me. I'm not kidding. Then my car blocked the sun and they saw me! They started yelling and waving and pointing and jumping. Whew! Thank goodness! 

Then I surprised the class last week while visiting the school for a meeting. I felt nervous, just like the first day of school. I walked in and they all, every single one of them, got up and ran to me. I was overwhelmed. Two of the little monkeys even cried.

But wait, there's more!! Over the weekend, I was snuggled up with T in bed and he said, "Mommy, when are you coming back to our school?" I told him the day of my return and he gave me the biggest hug. "I can't wait to see you." 
Ah, there's my answer. Yes, I am ready.
