I've been home sick these last TWO days! It's so frustrating! I did sneak in my classroom at 6:30am Monday to make sure the leprechaun visited and make sure plans were in order.
Can you believe I had over a 100 degree fever Saturday, Sunday, and Monday? Today I woke up drenched (luckily no fever) with a straggling sore throat that will not go away. Luckily my husband was off and he took care of our soon to be one year old sweetie pie.
I slept and I slept and I slept. I forgot what that felt like because it's been so long! In the moments that I wasn't sleeping, when my teeth were chattering, I looked up ideas for my baby's first birthday. It is sneaking up so quickly.
I feel so guilty that I wasn't grading papers!!! It's so hard to find balance now that I am a mom. I feel guilty when I am doing school work because I want to give my daughter 100% and I feel guilty when I am doing mommy jobs because I feel my other babies need 100%.
I can only do what I can do...I suppose...
It looks like her birthday will be at our house with a baby Minnie Mouse theme. I wanted to do it at a community center because there are no pets and there is a park for the other kids to play at...but they cost the same as some party places. I guess it makes sense with it being her first birthday to be in a place where she feels comfortable. It looks like Spring Break next week will be Spring clean, clean, clean.
I need to do that in my classroom too...
How to find balance??? Any suggestions? Any suggestions on first birthdays?
