March Currently 2014

Can you believe it, March already!?!?!?!

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently!

This afternoon I am LISTENING to Natalie (who is 4 months old today) slurping on the side of her hands while she swings in her swing and I type away.

I am absolutely LOVING the weekend.  This past week was my first full week teaching since I had Natalie and was out on maternity leave.  It is truly bitter sweet being back in the classroom.  I love teaching and interactive with staff, parents, and students.  However, I miss sweet Natalie terribly when I am away.

I have spent a good chunk of the morning WONDERING how in the world I will ever complete even a fraction of my to-do list.  I planned on today being my "get it all done" day and Sunday just relaxing and spending time with the baby and hubby.

So far, my morning has not been as productive as I would have liked it to be.  Which leads me to begin WANTING to clone myself.  I could have a school Jenny and a home Jenny.  Wouldn't that just be dandy?  I feel like I've divided myself in half this week and it is hard to piece myself back together each evening when I return home.  Everyone tells me each day will get easier.  I'm still holding out for a little relief.

I am definitely NEEDING a back massage after a week on my feet.  I now have a new appreciation for all you working moms (and dads).

Lastly, can you guess the ????? that goes with my answer?

My guess is: What are the things you should be doing? :)

My guess is: what do you need to do before your big presentation?

Congratulations on becoming a Mom - I love the name, Natalie, too!

Oh a back massage would be amazing. I ditto that one. I was exhausted just thinking of all the things you have to do (my guess)

It is so hard to return to work after maternity leave but it will get better. I hope you have a great sitter. I have been so blessed by mine:) If you have found a way to clone yourself let me know because I would totally benefit from that myself. Are you listing things needed for a presentation?
