Kids being back at school means that I am back at work! The year for us starts with a couple of professional devevlopment days before we get to start working with the kids. I can't wait to get back to the kids but it has been quite nice spending some time with my colleagues, I dont get to see them very much. My boss called on me as an 'expert' yesterday! I am not an expert, just been there longer than most, it was quite nice though I must admit!
We have some new colleagues just starting this term, they are really nice. I never know whether it is ok to mention Lola when meeting new people. To be honest I was a bit scared on the first day about what questions I would be asked and how I would answer them so I was a bit withdrawn. The second day I spent with them, the fact that I had a baby 9 months ago did come up. I talked about what happened and I didn't cry! That is a first for me! It was really nice to be able to talk about what happened, to not feel like I had to hide Lola's existence. They were super nice too. They asked me questions and didn't look scared to talk to me about it. One of them had also had a baby die in her family too. I think this is going to be a good year folks, a year for healing and happiness, mostly!
