Work leave almost over :(

OK...So, I have to return to work on November 30. I can't believe it is almost here. I'm pretty down about it. I feel so fortunate that I was able to take 10 weeks off from work but it feels like it has flown by. I miss my students but I am finding it hard to think about not spending every moment of everyday with Janie. The longest I've been away from her is about 2 1/2 hours when I ran a few errands and her Mimi (grandma) took care of her.
I know she has a WONDERFUL place to spend her days with an AMAZING caregiver. I am beyond LUCKY to have such great plans for her. But, I'm sad that it is not me! 
Seriously, how will I say good-bye to this face each morning????????

Today I was watching Janie take her afternoon nap and I began to cry thinking about leaving her during the day.......oh my heart

I took 10 weeks too. It was the best 10 weeks of my life and it was SO hard to go back. There were plenty of tears before I went back. I can tell you everything will be okay (and it will, I promise) but that first morning? Stinks. Big time. I feel your pain and will be thinking of you!

Ooh, I feel your pain. I go back after Xmas break. We still haven't found a childcare for her yet either. We have a backup but I really wanted her to go to at home daycare. The only place we have starts next school year. I am a teacher too.
