    Default Going back to teaching after Christmas break

    Tomorrow I start teaching again after 2 weeks of Christmas vacation.

    I love teaching, but I love my lo's more.

    I'm not looking forward to the stress of getting up extra early every morning, packing the car, not getting home until 5 p.m. to rush through dinner and bedtime.

    And, I have so enjoyed nursing my 6 mo. old without having to pump or think about my supply.

    Tomorrow, it's back to the stress of pumping, washing parts, counting ounces, and she's going to start solids soon....

    5 months until summer vacation!!!!!!!!!!!

    It helps to vent....

    s to you mama. I worked full-time when my first was young and the weekends were so great without having to deal with pump and all that. It is hard. Here's hoping the summer comes quickly!

    I AM SO WITH YOU! I went back this Monday (teach high school) after 2w off for Christmas. I miss my 2 boys sooooo much, and loved not having to worry about pumping/washing/etc. HUGS to you! Hope it's going ok.

    Thanks! The first week was better than I thought. We had a snow day on Wed. and half day on Friday. Next week will be my first full week back to pumping everyday. I'm counting down until summer!
