First Mom's Day
I had my first mother's day. I woke up fed Blake, got him dressed for church, took at 5 min. shower, got myself ready, packed the diaper bag, received a card and gift from Blake and out the door we went to church. It was fun to sit by my mom,dad, and siblings in church. Blake did well, my dad held him as he stared quietly and contently at the lights above him. Later that day we went to my mom and dad's house for lunch. I considered the next day real mother's day. Jason took Blake for me while I went and worked out and did some errands. That was a true treat, and he even watched him when I got home. We took a walk later that night and then I went to bed.
Blake is now more awake and is cooing a lot more. While he is in his swing he looks at the mobile and smiles at it. He lifts his head and still hates being on his tummy.
Tomorrow I go to school to visit my students. I told the principal that I would not be returning to school next year. That was very hard for me to do, but I know it's the best thing for Blake and myself. I would miss Blake too much if I went back to teaching.
