One year ago I was 39.5 weeks pregnant, waiting to see if I would go into labor and become a mother of an outside-baby for Mother’s Day.
2.5 weeks later, Baby Love was born after a long, hard labor.
Being her mother has been the most joyful, fulfilling job I have ever had.
After 7 months of being her full-time stay-at-home-mom, I returned to work to complete my student teaching, taking on a full-time job outside the home and leaving her in the care of a nanny. It was very hard.
Friday, after 14 weeks away, my student teaching ended.
I am officially a full-time stay-at-home-mom again.
And I’m loving it.
Thank you, Baby Love, for giving me the best job I have ever, ever had. Thank you for making me a mother. Thank you for helping me find complete fulfillment in being “just” a mom.
Happy Mother’s Day, sweetheart!
