Ok... So, I did it... I finally went down to Coleman's Children Academy and got registration papers for little Katie. Matt and I went down there a couple of weeks ago to get the rate sheet (to see just how much we would be spending), but we wanted to wait to fill out the paperwork until we knew the sex of the baby. We do now, so I did it...
I know and love Coleman's very much. I worked there for nearly 4 years and grew to love the owners and the way they run their facilities. It is rather pricey (close to the most expensive in the area), but still a lot less than what it would cost if I just stayed home. The price doesn't matter to us because it is where we want to send our little Katie girl.
I walked in and one of my old bosses was right there and was so excited to see me. She just kept hugging me and rubbing my sweet belly. It made me feel very happy. And it doesn't bother me one bit that my child will get extra attention because of who her mommy is! She can get all the attention that they want to give her. Because you better believe that her mommy won't be very happy if she isn't!
Anyways, I was a little sad as I was filling out the paperwork because I know that I will have to leave this precious little girl in just a few months (well, not a few but it seems like it). I'm sure many of you are saying, "just stay home with her." That, however, is just not who I am as a person. I praise those of you who are stay at home moms, but I want to work. I want to teach and continue to impact the lives of the 84 kids I will be working with on a daily basis. I also want that feeling of hearing the bell ring at 3:00 and knowing that I will get to hold my little girl in my arms in just a few minutes.
So, yes I may be sad, but it is okay...
