My last week of school before maternity leave was so emotional. I love my class. They are silly and sweet and smart and I knew it was going to be hard to leave them.....and it was.
They are also full of surprises, too. The little monkeys hosted a shower for me just days before our little guy arrived. I knew they were up to something, but I thought they were making something and all bringing it in before I left. Boy was I wrong!
My para pulled me out of a meeting one afternoon and said, "They broke something." I asked what it was and she told me to just come look. I said, "Well, we can fix it...unless it's a computer!" When I walked in the room, there were balloons everywhere, an adorable cake, my whole class grinning from ear to ear, and lots of parents.
Then there were tears, lots of tears! It was such a wonderful surprise and it just reminded how lucky I am to have this career, this class, these parents, and this sweet baby boy.
We received all kind of cute gifts, but I'd like to share the books first because this is what we're reading Sunday!
These are a few of the books the class gave us. T and I have been reading them with each other and he's been reading them to baby M. We've marked them with a special note so we will always remember they are from my class. They are treasures.
What are you reading?
