Back into the swing of things…

I have to confess: it has been a really busy year and I have not blogged nearly as much as I would have liked. Returning to work after having a baby, balancing full time work and family commitments is something I feel I am slowly becoming better at managing. I think the many articles and opinion pieces about mother’s guilt and balancing work and family do summarise the angst that returning to work can bring, though I have to say that it’s a challenge that is worthwhile. A good friend said to me that a baby will grow and eventually become a little person with their own identity. It’s so true because when I look at my little one now, he is vivacious, loves exploring and has a warm and endearing nature. He also loves to joke around. I think that day care has enabled more and varied opportunities to develop his social skills and motor skill development. I think that work has enabled me to reconnect with people and remember what it is that I love so much about being in the classroom. Anyway, will promise another blog post soon.
