As of yesterday, I have been back to work for one month and I'm already living for the two-week holiday break. Teaching is hard work. I like my job on most days, but I wish that I could work half time and spend the other half of the week with the kids doing playgroups.
As a result, I try to jam as much "mom" time into my breaks. I have fun mommy-group stuff planned for much of the next 2 weeks. I just need to survive one more day with my 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.
