It's so hard to believe that in less than 2 weeks, I'll be back at work, and Hanna will be returning to Nat's every day! Just thinking about it last night brought tears to my eyes. I know, I need to just get over it, and deal with it, but I am just not quite ready yet! I feel like I haven't had enough time with my sweet girl. I'll never have enough time! I do understand that most parents would LOVE to have a few weeks off with their little ones, much less 2 months, but hey---it's a perk of being a teacher! I'm going to miss the morning snuggles, sweet kisses, pajama days, and just the love that she shows me throughout the day! I'm even going to miss the temper tantrums that I'm beginning the see, the picking up of blocks that I do at least 15 times a day, and the sound of Yo Gabba Gabba that is constantly playing on the TV in the background!
I am extremely blessed though to know how happy Hanna is at Nat's each day! She has been going there once a week throughout most of the summer, and it just makes me smile to see her reach out to Nat when I get there to drop her off. Her big grin just says it all!! Hanna has made some of the bestest friends there, and she just lights up whenever she sees them. Nat has become so special to us over the past year, and I can't thank her enough for the care and love to shows my sweet girl each and every day!
So, for the next 2 weeks, I'm going to spend as much time as I can with my angel. I'm going to try not to worry about the laundry that needs to be folded, the dishes that need to be put away, and the other things that really don't matter. We are going to soak up each and every minute of the summer vacation that we've got left!
