When Emma and Ellie were each 12 weeks old I returned to work. I am a teacher and I consider myself a very blessed person, because I love my work. But, oh the heartache I felt returning. Especially with Emma, since I was still working full time. It was better with Ellie, having only to be away half a day, but still I was sad. The joy I feel today not leaving Lucy is unexplainable. I can only say that I'm thankful, very, very thankful. I look forward to someday returning to the classroom but for now my home and my family are my work which makes me one lucky lady.
