I started teaching 2nd grade in mid-August just waiting for my water to break in the middle of class. The janitor, Mr. Mike, was already so nervous that this would happen and he'd have to be the one to take me to the hospital! I assured him that I had a beach towel handy and everything would be OK. After almost three weeks, I got the word from Dr. Scroggs that I was finally 4cm and ready to be admitted! I went back to school that day, tied up my loose ends, and hugged my kids goodbye. "September 1, 2011... that would be my baby's birthday, a day I'd never forget," were my thoughts as I wrote the date on the board preparing my sub for her first day solo. Little did I know just how special that day would be to me for the rest of my life.
