When I left teaching, I also left behind the holidays that went along with it. It was a tough transition, at first. It seemed so odd to be working all year long. It's been almst six years since I was last in the calssroom, soI've gotten used to it now. I've learned to enjoy the small breaks that I get here and there. My mom works for a school, so she decided to come and visit us for a few days while she was on Spring Break. The kids adore "Nana", so it was win-win. We usually take turns and have her stay home with one kid at a time so that they each get a day with Nana.
The other great thing about having her here is getting to go OUT. M and I went out every night she was in town and it was so nice. It was nice to have help in the evenings and in the morning. It was nice to have someone to help make dinners, fold laundry, and change diapers. I know that the chores we do everyday aren't the fun part of having grandkids, so I am very grateful for the kindness that my mom bestowed upon us by helping us this week. I feel like I got a spring break, too, and it made all the difference.
