Time keeps on ticking (ticking) into the Future.....
I remember eagerly counting down to the end of school each year. This continued through elementary, junior high, high school, and even college and grad school. As a teacher.... you would think I would do the same thing now. But each year it sneaks up on me and I'm broadsided by the announcement "We only have (insert number here) days left!
This year has been a little different. I am due to have a baby on June 3rd, and the last teacher day of school is not until June 5th. I must have been the only person disappointed this year when I got the call for snow days. I currently have 12 days to go until my due date, 14 until the end of school. I must be the only pregnant woman ever to want to go past her due date.
Could it be that I am just a control freak and don't want someone else coming in to finish up my class for the year? Could it be that I don't want to waste any more sick days than necessary? Cold it be that I am just FREAKING out at the thought of having a baby come barreling out of my lady parts, then being responsible for it's upbringing for the next few decades? Yes. I think it might be a little of all of those. But mostly the barreling out of my lady parts.
