Time and Good News!

Does anyone else feel like there's never enough time in the day? Working full time and having a baby is so hard! In the past few weeks I have felt streched so thin and just want more time. Each evening flies by and there is always so much to do but my first priority is playing with Anderson when I get home. I have also been feeling mommy guilt even more than usual. I'm tired of rushing around and always trying to get everything ready for the next day. I barely make it to work on time as it is with James' help. I'm also tired of feeling like I don't get to see Anderson when he is the most playful and cheerful. By the time I pick him up he is tired. He isn't usually grouchy but he is so much more animated and happy in the mornings. With all that being said, I have some great news! I'm going to teach half time next year. A friend from my school who had a baby one month after Anderson was born is going to be my partner. My wonderful principal is allowing us to each teach a few days a week and split up all grading, etc. I couldn't be happier about the situation. I'm going to teach 4th grade and am so excited about it! Last year I would have said that 2nd was my favorite but after the year I've had, I can't wait for the change! I just have to get through the month of May and then everything will be so much better.
Our little guy is so much fun and keeps getting bigger and bigger. He is a sweetheart and has a funny sense of humor. I can't wait to spend more time with him this summer and next year! We are going to do so many fun things with friends and mommy groups. Thinking about how much fun it will be is going to get me through these next four weeks I hope!

Saturday mornings are the best!

Anderson loves to stand up!

Love his smile.
A picture to prove that he doesn't always smile
for the camera. He did proceed to pick the flower!
