tomorrow is friday, april 8th...i knew this day was coming:
it's my last day of maternity leave.
wasn't it just yesterday that justin and i were driving to the hospital with snow covering the ground getting ready to meet little miss stella? it seems like it was just yesterday but really it was 12 weeks ago. and so i have to go back to work on monday.
am i ready? no.
do i wish i had 12 more weeks? yes.
but right now, God has me in this stage. a stage in which my new normal will include being a mom to 2 precious little ones, a wife to the most perfect man for me, a teacher to 21 sweet 4th graders who need me to be fully ready to learn with them, and a friend to the most amazing friends a girl could ask more.
am i overwhelmed by my new normal? yes.
do i think i can do it all? no.
but i know that God will provide all that i need for this new normal.
my heart is full. full of love for these 2 little ones. i couldn't ask for anything else but to be with them all the time but right now i am going to embrace my new normal and try to be the best mom, wife, teacher, and friend i know how to be.
