It doesn't get easier...

I've been back to work now for three weeks and it is getting harder and harder to leave Izzy. I thought it would get better. The first week I was sad...the second week I cried in the car on the way to school... the third week I quietly cried in the dark on Sunday night as I talked about it with my husband. What will week 4 bring? Izzy is changing so fast and I wish I could be with her ALL the time. I know it is healthy for both of us to be apart...and really I can't complain because I work part time. Plus she is in the best hands next to her momma and daddy with Grandma Meredie, Grandma Donna, and Aunt Lori. However I can be selfish right? You never can anticipate the love you will have for your children.

Oh, Jess I feel for you. I guess you just have to listen to your heart and see how the next few weeks & months go. Izzy is gorgeous!

Poor Jess....I don't know how you put on your happy face at school when you cry on the way there. I guess just be thankful that as a teacher we do get out early and for you that you get to work part time and others have to work full time, commute, and have long work days. I guess just truly cherish your time together...I'm scared to go back 2 weeks from today.
