Today was my last day in the classroom. I figured that since I’ll be a week overdue on Monday, it didn’t make much sense to go back to work.

It was very bittersweet. The day was filled with thousands of hugs, pictures, lots of love letters, and a few misty eyes.

I am fortunate enough to be able to stay home with Baby Cakes next year – so I won’t be returning to the 3rd grade world next fall, but maybe someday. I will miss my kiddos tremendously – their hugs, their humor, their poems, their ideas, their inappropriate
questions, and their expectant little faces that greeted me each morning.

But I know that when Baby Cakes arrives (if she ever does) – I’ll be thinking of nothing else. I’ll have my very own little girl to hug, teach, and shower my love upon.

As they say, when one door closes
