working mom…

April 23rd, 2013

so some days I feel that coming to work is soo easy. I love my job. I love having a reason to shower and dress up in the morning. I love my students. I love what I teach…. BUT other days, all I can think about is how i love my son and I miss him. Inman is soo much fun right now. He learns something new every day and has such a joy for life that I find it hard to ever feel stressed when I am with him.

But, in the end, I am glad that I am working and I am so blessed to have a wonderful babysitter who sends me videos and pictures while I’m here! Watch below! 🙂

“To my unborn child”

With fingers and toes

your personality forms,

yet remains unknown

 

“Loneliness”

My high heels and flats

miss your worn overalls and

flannels. Please come back.

my son is one…

IMG_0593it’s so hard for me to believe that Inman is one already, yet at the same time, I can’t even remember life without a baby.  Things like sleeping in on a Saturday, running errands alone, going to the movies on a whim…. those seem like YEARS ago.  Yet when I rock Inman in my arms I wonder how a full year has passed and he has gotten so big… and I think ahead to all the years that are going to pass and how all i have is this moment.  So i am taking a minute to hold on to the moment where Inman is one. The only grandbaby on the Kjeldsen side. His first birthday. His second Easter. The sadness of being sick for four days.  Breaking out in a rash from his medication. The beauty of being the one he wants when he is sad. Laughing and smiling at his mommy.  So, here’s to Inman on his first of many birthdays… and may I continue to treasure up these moments in my heart.
