Mr. Sneaker is out of town until Thursday, so I have the entire weekend ahead of me to be productive. I had to make a to do list because if it's not written down, it won't happen. I feel like I have a lot to do between reworking my methodology section of my dissertation proposal (feedback from my advisers was that I needed to change the design I first created), writing thank you notes for the baby gifts from my staff, reading an article for an upcoming training that I have, and doing my reading for book club, I feel like I will be reading and/or typing for many hours this weekend.
Tomorrow I am 35 weeks, which means I officially have just about 5 weeks left of this pregnancy. How crazy is that!? I am hoping that baby Sneaker comes on time (or maybe a little bit early) but not earlier than the start of our spring break. I really want to be able to work until that natural transition point and not have to leave sooner than planned. It just makes it easier all around if Baby Sneaker cooperates with that time line. I am totally fine with going into labor once school is over on March 23rd, but that is even a whole weeks early, so I will probably be spending most of spring break just begging her to come out already.
I have been getting really tired lately so I am really looking forward to sleeping in this weekend and relaxing a lot. Even though I've got work to do, I can bring my laptop/ipad to bed and be productive from a comfortable position.
Only FOUR more weeks of work until spring break (if I make it that long) so the countdown is officially on. I feel like I have been moving at a slower pace in the classroom lately and trying to just enjoy the kiddos since my time with them is so short and there are not a lot of days left. They are getting better and better with reading and writing and sometimes I just want to sit back and enjoy seeing what they can do rather than rushing through everything. I think next week I finally have to bring up the fact that once I have a baby I won't be returning to school since I am not sure whether or not they truly understand that yet. Any tips for breaking the news to Kinders would be appreciated!!
