No more work for me!

I decided to go on maternity leave early and not risk getting sick. And to be honest I am okay even if I don't get paid for 2 weeks. My principal was great about it and said for me to look at this time as a reason to pamper myself before baby comes. She is right! She technically can't say if I have to stay or go but was really supportive of my choice. I asked some of my close teacher friends if I was over reacting and they all agreed its better to be safe then sorry.

I guess my little friends are already giving the sub crap! She lets it happen so I can't expect any different. One little guy took it upon himself to move his seat today. He is such a pistil!! I know I am going to have my work cut out for me once I go back. But in the last few days I've seen they CAN do the right thing!

I can't wait to go to my appointment on Monday and find out if I've made anymore progress. The swelling in my feet has gone down. I think I over did it yesterday at work and not drinking enough water. Now I just sit and wait for her little face to show up!

Enjoy your time at home and try not to worry about your class. You'll set them straight when you go back!

yes, sounds like the best thing to do. When i found out my induction date, i decided to take my maternity leave a week early, but then they moved up my induction date, so i was right on time, maybe you'll go early! Good luck, i can't wait to hear your birthing story and see pictures.

Your welcome for my very honest and real birth story. It's amazing what they dont' tell you ahead of time!

It's hard giving up that control, but once Lillian gets here, you won't think twice about it! Can't wait to see her beautiful little face.
