Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

New Babies and New Mamas

My sister just had her first baby a few weeks ago and my mom came to stay with her for the first two weeks to help her out. This week she is on her own and faced with the daunting task of raising a baby. I remember that feeling.

Not really knowing if anything you do is right.

Thinking about how little...so little...that baby is.

Wishing, wishing, WISHING that you could sleep. Or shower. Or eat.

I don't envy her this time. Of the past 19 months I have had with Avery the first few were not my favourite. But if you want to get to the fun part then you have to go through it.

And I love Avery more then I ever thought I could so I guess maybe it's worth it.

I know it is.

Maybe I'll try this again?

Wow, it's been forever since I posted on this blog. Forever.

Today I went in to start setting up my classroom again for the upcoming school year and somehow this year feels different. I can't really figure out why. I've switched grades before. I've revamped huge components of my teaching before. I went back to work early last year when Avery was a baby so I've done that before.

Now really sure. But it feels different.

And, I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping lately. I feel tired. I want to sleep. But I just lie there are sleep eludes me. I hate that.

I think maybe I'll try and post here more often in the coming days. Just a place to unload.

Even if none of you are following or reading anymore...and really why would you? I totally abandoned this blog and you all. But if you are out there, thanks.

I'll try and do better.

Last Words...

Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
