Missing Mrs. Tompkins
The last two nights I've had dreams about school. About being back at school teaching, about Luke being in kindergarten, about my teacher friends. I miss all that. Today, I miss it a lot. I miss my colleagues, I miss knowing I'm a part of students' lives. I do not miss faculty meetings. I know that in a few years, I'll be back there most likely, doing the teacher thing. And I know that that time will be here before I know it. This time of my babies being babies is short. And I don't want to miss a moment of this. So I guess it's good that there's a part of me longing to be Mrs. Tompkins again.
