This week has already proven to be more challenging that last year’s back to school week. My plans for teaching have changed as we had to push our first day of school to a week from next Monday.

Annabelle is adjusting to baby school as well as I expected – she has been crying each morning when I drop her off, but fine when I pick her up. It’s just one of those aspects of Motherhood I just don’t like: the emotional rollercoaster.
