Back to Work, Back to School

Today was my first day back at work since Ben was born. It was bittersweet, but I made it through. I love teaching, I love the school where I teach, and I'm very excited about teaching a great group of fourth and fifth graders. However, I've only been away from Ben a small handful of times and today was tough. Josh brought Ben up for lunch, which made the day easier. Ben took a bottle just fine for Josh! He had been refusing bottles for the past couple of weeks, so this made me feel better about the week. Josh is an amazing dad and I'm so happy he will be staying with Ben during the school year. Ben was eager and nursing all evening when I got home and I was happy to have the cuddle time with him. Josh and Ben will be visiting me for lunch every day this week and I hope the transition continues easily.

Ben also got his first tooth over the past couple of days!


  1. we cant even get our baby to let us look at her emerging teeth and here you can get a picture. sigh.

  2. Awww, a big week at your house! Still going well?

  3. Yes, it's going ok. It's been a tough week, though. I am having a hard time getting back in the swing of things after not working for six months. Josh has brought Ben up for lunch every day but one, so that made it a lot easier. Next week will be harder maybe.
